Jul 1, 2019 | Drug Offenses

In the event that a person has criminal charges brought against him or her, it is wise to fully understand the predicament. Serious repercussions can result from an arrest and if a conviction for drug charges comes about. Of course, before that could take place, an accused party has the right to defend against any allegations.

One man in Texas may soon be looking into his defense options after recently being taken into custody. According to reports, a police officer purportedly noticed the man failing to remain on the right side of the road while driving. As a result, the officer conducted a traffic stop. The officer then had the driver perform field sobriety tests, the results of which were not disclosed in the report. However, it was reported that the officer conducted a search of the man and allegedly found a syringe and a bag with a substance inside.

The substance reportedly had a positive result for methamphetamine when field tested. As a result, the driver was taken into custody and is currently facing charges for felony possession of a controlled substance. The report stated that the man had a bond set at $150,000.

Drug charges can have varying penalties if a court convicts an accused party of the allegations. The man charged in this Texas case will certainly want to understand the possible consequence of the allegations brought against him as well as his options for working toward a favorable outcome. Gaining information from local legal resources may help him with this endeavor.
