Minocha Law Firm defends people accused of drug charges in Texas state and federal courts, including drug possession, manufacturing, intent to deliver, and interstate drug trafficking.
Drug charges–even marijuana possession–can impact everyday life.
Drug charges, including simple drug possession, have serious consequences, which may include:
- losing your driver’s license,
- losing employment or a chance at future employment,
- losing your housing,
- losing or being unable to apply for student financial aid in the future, or
Even for simple marijuana possession or drug possession you should hire a criminal defense lawyer like Sanjay Minocha to help you fight or negotiate with the prosecutors.
There are many ways to defeat drug charges prior to trial.
For example, depending on the circumstances, an attorney may be able to file a motion to suppress asserting your constitutional right to privacy. Sometimes it makes sense to retest the alleged drugs when there is a question about the content or weight of the alleged drugs. As with any case, there are many other procedural and legal devices an attorney can aggressively pursue to defeat the State’s case against you.
There are often other ways to avoid the harshest consequences of guilt.
In Dallas and many North Texas counties, courts have set up “diversion” programs for simple marijuana possession or drug courts with alternative sentencing for other drug possession charges. Under these programs, a defendant may be eligible to avoid a conviction and later be eligible for expunction or nondisclosure of any criminal history.
The key is hiring a knowledgeable lawyer to educate and advise you about all possible options and one who can pursue these options with the prosecutor on your behalf.
