Will I Go To Jail For Drug Possession?
Fort Bend Drug Possession Lawyer
Depending upon your record, and the amount of drug or many other factors, you may or may not go to jail for drug possession. Many factors come into play when determining whether or not a court will impose a jail sentence on a drug possession offender. Most drug possession penalties do carry a jail sentence of some length. But frequently, judges may have the discretion to impose a suspended sentence with probation, rather than jail. At the Law Office of John L. Venza Jr., I am extremely familiar with all the possible outcomes of drug possession offenses. If you or a loved one has been arrested for any type of drug possession charge, please contact my office so that I can assist you in avoiding a jail sentence. In many circumstances, if it is a first offense for a small amount of illegal drug, the court has the discretion to suspend a jail sentence and order drug treatment and probation.
Avoiding a jail sentence is possible with the right defense.
That being said, the circumstances and facts of each case are the most important factor in determining whether or not someone will go to jail for drug possession. Call my office in Fort Bend to arrange an appointment where we can personally meet and discuss your situation in detail. I am a former prosecutor who is thoroughly familiar with the missteps made by law enforcement every day.
The possibility of filing a motion to suppress evidence and prevailing upon the same is high as in many cases, procedures are not followed to the letter of the law. If the police obtain any evidence while not following proper procedure, that evidence can be excluded from consideration in your case. Illegal searches and seizures and any evidence gathered therefrom are not admissible in a court of law. The lack of evidence can operate to have your case dismissed in some circumstances.
