Drug possession charges in Texas carry a wide range of punishment, from probation to lengthy prison sentences. Drug possession convictions can also result in driver’s license suspensions.
The Code of Criminal Procedure also allows police to seize any property used or “intended to be used” in the commission of a drug felony offense. This asset forfeiture law is a civil action, not criminal, and you do not have to be convicted for the State of Texas to take your property.
Whether you are charged with felony possession or misdemeanor possession depends on the penalty group and the weight or amount of the drug. If you or a loved one is charged with possession, you need to speak to an experienced attorney.
