Woman facing possession charges after police find heroin

Anyone's life can have ups and downs, and it can be difficult to navigate either at times. For some individuals, their downs can be especially challenging to handle because they may end up in predicaments they have never faced before. For example, if a person faces drug charges for heroin possession, he or she has a long and likely complicated road ahead.

One woman in Texas may be hoping to better understand her dilemma after recently being taken into custody. Reports indicated that a bystander called police after seeing three children left alone in a vehicle at an apartment complex. Authorities arrived at the scene and found an 8-year-old boy, a 6-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl in the car. The oldest reportedly said that their mother had gone to the bathroom.

After authorities located the children, they were on the scene for 50 minutes before the mother came to the car. She reportedly also told police she had gone to the bathroom. Before police arrived, a child in the vehicle allegedly showed the witness a bag with a substance inside, which the witness took a picture of and showed the police. Officers searched the woman and her vehicle and allegedly found heroin on the woman's person and in the vehicle. She was taken into custody on charges of possession of a controlled substance.

This may certainly be one of the lowest points in this woman's life, but she does not have to feel without hope. Just as with any criminal charge, she has the right to defend against the allegations of heroin possession. It may benefit her to gain information from local Texas legal resources to better understand her defense options.
