The Defense Representation You Need When Facing Drug Charges In Texas
Drug laws are easing in many states, but that’s not the case in Texas. Even relatively small charges like possession can result in significant penalties for those convicted. If you find yourself facing drug charges in Round Rock or surrounding areas of Texas, it is important to take steps to protect your rights and your freedom.
That’s why you should contact Winnie A. Bates, Attorney at Law. Our attorney has decades of legal experience and will work hard to help you resolve your charges in the most favorable manner available.
Understanding Your Charges And Potential Penalties
Our firm can defend you against a variety of misdemeanor drug charges, including those related to:
- Simple possession of marijuana
- Prescription drug offenses (possessing a controlled substance without a prescription, for instance)
- Possession of illegal drug paraphernalia
In drug cases, the charges and related penalties are determined by the type and quantity of the drug, the type of activity (possession, delivery, etc.) and other factors like previous convictions. The best way to understand your charges and your legal options is to speak to an experienced attorney like Winnie Bates.
Challenging How The Evidence Was Obtained
The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects all of us from unreasonable search and seizure by law enforcement. Typically, this means that police must obtain a search warrant or otherwise be able to show probable cause. If you were searched in violation of your Fourth Amendment rights, Ms. Bates may be able to petition the court to suppress the evidence obtained during the search. That means it could not be used to convict you.
This is one of the many options she can explore with you when building your defense strategy.
