Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

How to Beat a Felony Drug Charge in Texas

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 significantly help your case if you’ve been arrested and charged with a felony drug crime. Here’s how to beat a felony drug charge in Texas.

Ways to Avoid a Conviction

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 justify your behavior, but all they’re doing is screening the conversation and making a mental checklist of any illegal activity you just admitted to.

2. Be Polite

We don’t want you chatting with police without a lawyer present, and we also don’t want you to antagonize 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 or flippant with them, you could turn what was a business transaction into a personal crusade, which 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 and 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 because 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, so 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 transmission when you’ve never even changed a tire. A qualified lawyer can help negotiate a better deal with the prosecution, find errors in your case, and cast reasonable doubt in the minds of jurors and judges.

A Drug Crime Lawyer Is Standing By

Many people make the mistake of thinking they can’t afford a good attorney. Think again. Most attorneys will work with your budget and can set up a payment plan so you can get the representation you need and still be able to pay for their services.
