How to Beat a Felony Drug Charge in Texas

How Do I Beat a Felony Drug Charge in Fort Worth?

Texas is tough on drug crimes. Other states are a little more lenient, often treating substance abuse more as a disease or addiction. In Texas, however, even very minor possession can get you charged with a felony. Being a felon for life doesn’t have any upsides. And the downsides are life-altering.

The good news is you can help your case if you’ve been charged with a felony drug crime. Here’s how to beat a felony drug charge in Texas.

Ways to Avoid a Felony Conviction in Fort Worth 

Check out these four common ways to beat a felony drug charge in Texas:

1. Don’t Say a Word

No, really—we mean it. When you’re arrested, or even detained, by police, don’t talk to them without a lawyer. They are going to ask you all sorts of questions. They aren’t trying to understand where you’re coming from or learn about your life.

You may want to defend your actions and your behavior. But all they’re doing is screening the conversation and making a mental checklist of any illegal activity you just discussed.

2. Be Polite

We don’t want you chatting with police without a lawyer present. We also don’t want you to harass them.

Police are human. Your arrest, to them, isn’t personal. You’re just one more person to haul off to jail before lunch. If you’re rude with them, you could turn what was a business transaction into a personal crusade. That can only make your situation worse.

3. Think Hard About Any Plea Agreements You’re Handed

Prosecutors are busy little bees. They don’t have time to mess around because the cases are just piling up. They’ve got to make some headway. They will throw out plea agreements willy-nilly. And then they’ll bully you into accepting an offer. They don’t want to take the time to go back and forth with you. Don’t play their games.

This is their job. But a felony drug charge is your life. Be that pesky defendant who fights for your rights. Your future is worth fighting for. Don’t sign anything until you think it’s the best deal you can get.

4. Call a Lawyer

Just do it. Fighting felony charges on your own is like trying to fix your car’s engine when you’ve never even changed a tire. A lawyer can negotiate a better deal with the prosecution, find errors in your case, and cast reasonable doubt in the minds of jurors and judges.

An Experienced Attorney Is Standing By

Many people make the mistake of thinking they can’t afford a good attorney. Think again. Most lawyers will work with your budget and can set up a payment plan so you can pay for their services within your budget.
