Hiring Jeff Kennedy turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Mr. Kennedy was able to have my case dismissed. Yes, outright dismissal of the charge!

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 Get a Drug Paraphernalia Charged Dropped in Texas

Possession of drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor-level offense in Texas. Like any other crime, getting busted with drugs or drug-related items can go on your permanent legal record—something that can have negative consequences for your job or housing prospects. 

Of course, the best way to avoid the impact of a drug paraphernalia conviction is to get the charges dropped or reduced before they become official. An experienced drug lawyer in Texas can help you assess all your options. 

Defenses to Drug Paraphernalia Charges

Anyone can be arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, whether as a stand-alone charge or as an accompaniment to another offense. 

Things an arresting officer could perceive as paraphernalia could actually be a regular household item with a non-criminal application—which is part of the reason why you want to make sure you have adequate legal representation if you’ve been arrested. 

Some examples of items commonly characterized as drug paraphernalia include:

  • Tobacco pipes
  • Bowls
  • Water bongs
  • Chillums and one-hitters
  • Rolling papers
  • Needles
  • Scales
  • Aluminum foil
  • And others

When it comes to finding the correct defense to a drug paraphernalia charge, there’s no such thing as a cookie-cutter defense. 

However, there are some common methods of disputing these charges a defense attorney could utilize. Some of the most important include:

  • Illegal Search and Seizure – Sometimes, a police search could be conducted improperly. When this happens, an attorney would ask to have that evidence omitted from the record. 
  • Lack of Probable Cause – If an arresting officer lacked probable cause to make a search, that evidence could be omitted. Lack of probable cause would likely be considered a type of illegal search.
  • Entrapment – If you were arrested as part of a sting operation, your attorney could make the case that you were entrapped illegally. 

Regardless of the nature of your drug paraphernalia charges, an experienced attorney could help you put up the best defense possible. You can learn more by calling our office today.
