G. Thayer Williamson Your Drug Crime Attorney

What Happens if I am Convicted of a Drug Crime in Texas?

First off, you do not want to convicted of a drug crime in Texas. The consequences range from probation to incarceration. The main issue in sentencing to the type of drug and the amount. For example, possession of a joint will be treated much differently than possession of a pound of cocaine. One constant is that Section 521.372 of the Texas Transportation Code provides that a conviction for possession of ANY substance prohibited under the Texas Controlled Substances Act will result in an automatic 180 day minimum suspension of your drivers license. A possession conviction of anything from a joint, to methamphetamine will result in a loss of you drivers license. Hire an experienced attorney so that you don't lose your license.
