Criminal Defense FAQ
Have you recently been arrested for a crime? If so you probably have many
unanswered questions that you would like answered. Be sure to seek out
that information before it is too late. Here are some answers to some
of the more frequently asked questions regarding criminal defense.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
This all depends on whether or not formal charges have been filed against
you. It can also depend on if your defense attorney can reach a plea bargain
with the prosecution before resorting to trial. Sometimes these matters
can be resolved in pre-trial hearings, but other times the case must go
to trial in order to be fully resolved.
What Possible Penalties Could I Be Looking At?
According to Texas criminal law the penalties can vary drastically depending
on the crime and the severity of your criminal offense. However, the majority
of misdemeanor offenses can lead to a one year jail sentence and a fine
up to $4,000. Felony crimes are taken much more seriously in the eyes
of the court and those are typically punishable for several years in prison
and up to $10,000 in fines.
Is It Illegal to Be in Possession of Marijuana in Texas?
Yes. No matter how much marijuana is found in your possession, you can
be charged with a drug crime if the police find even the smallest amount.
The penalties for marijuana drug crimes will vary depending on the amount
of the drug found in your possession. For example, if you were in possession
of 5oz or less then it is considered to be a Class C misdemeanor. However,
if law enforcement catches you with 2,000 lb of marijuana in your possession
then you could be facing a first-degree felony charges.
Can I Be Pulled Over for DWI in Texas?
In order to be charged with drunk driving, Texas law enforcement officials
must first have legal grounds to pull you over. They must also have plenty
of convincing evidence to suspect that you were in fact driving while
intoxicated. For example, if you fail a blood test, urine test, breath
test or field sobriety test, then the police may have legal ground to
arrest you for suspicion of DWI.
