If you’re facing criminal charges for any narcotic other than small amounts of marijuana, you’ll face at least 2 years State jail on up to life in prison for possession of dangerous drugs in Texas. Persons arrested for the possession, manufacture, or distribution of heroin, cocaine, meth, pills, heroin, PCP, or any other dangerous drug in Houston, will be charged with a felony and this also applies for trace amounts.
It’s Best to Fight Criminal Charges
If you’re facing felony criminal charges in Houston, your lawyer will need to make investigating your case a top priority. An intense investigation is best, because police will often overlook evidence, lose evidence, or in many cases, not have any evidence at all. If a person is to be convicted in a Texas criminal court there will need to be some evidence proving their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, or they cannot be convicted.
As an American, you have a Constitutional right to counsel and a defense, but not just any counsel, competent counsel. In some other nations, the government can accuse a person of a crime, and they must prove their innocence. In America, the state of Texas or the United States of America must prove a defendant’s guilt, as opposed to a condemned person proving their innocence. This makes the US justice system the best in world as it gives the benefit of the doubt to the individual rather than the overpowering state. As an American, it’s always smart and best to take full advantage of your rights. After all, our forefathers died for those rights.
