Your Future Is At Risk If You Are Caught In Possession Of Marijuana
Texas cracks down severely on all drug crimes, but marijuana is one of the most heavily prosecuted drug crimes in the state. If you are convicted, you face anywhere from 180 days in jail to up to 99 years in prison and fines of up to $50,000, depending on the amount you were caught with.
A conviction on your record makes it much harder to get a job, get a loan or go to school. If you are in college, you may lose your federal student loans and grants. If you are an immigrant, you risk deportation. You cannot afford to let a mistake destroy your future. Talk to a lawyer with experience in marijuana possession defense.
Unreasonable Search And Seizure
The most common defense against marijuana charges is challenging whether the police had probable cause to stop and search you. The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution prohibits unreasonable search and seizure. If the arresting police officer does not have a good reason as to why he or she stopped you and searched your person, vehicle or house, the evidence could be thrown out.
Ryan Hill and his team will investigate all potential defenses in your case, including a violation of your Fourth Amendment rights. We will review the evidence against you, including the police report, audio and video recordings, and witness statements. Ryan will look for inconsistencies in the arrest report and compare it to your account of events. He will also look for potential errors or possible misconduct on the part of the arresting officer.
Our goal is to help you avoid the consequences of a conviction. Ryan has extensive knowledge concerning Fourth Amendment cases, and understands what defenses are available under the constitution. We investigate all possibilities, including diversion programs, plea bargains and reduced charges. Whenever possible, Ryan will seek to get your case dismissed or fight for an acquittal at trial.
