Possession of a controlled substance is one of the most common charges around the courthouse. Hiring a lawyer well versed in the latest 4th Amendment search and seizure law is vital to avoiding a conviction, which also carries a six-month driver’s license suspension. If the police did not legally discover the drugs using proper police procedures, then all the evidence against you could be suppressed and your case dismissed. Even if the police legally seized the evidence, it must still be proven that you intentionally and knowingly “possessed” the contraband. In Texas, “possession” is defined as having actual care, custody, control, or management over the drugs.
