Drug Possession Charges and Consequences

Possession of small amounts of any drug other than marijuana or another person's prescription pills is usually considered a felony.

Among the most common of these substances are:

  • Cocaine
  • Oxycodone
  • LSD
  • Ecstasy
  • Large amounts of prescription pills

Depending on the amount that is found in your possession, you could face anywhere from a 2-year jail sentence to first degree felony charges that can carry up to 99 years in prison. A drug conviction can also have ramifications outside the courtroom, such as affecting your ability to receive federal financial aid for college and maintain a driver's license.

Legal Strategies for Drug Possession Defense

It is possible that for a first-time drug offense you may be a candidate for mandatory probation rather than jail time. Depending on the county that you were charged in, there may be diversion programs or drug court programs. If you have been arrested and accused of drug possession and this is your first, second, or third offense, understanding the different actions that could be or have been taken against you is important.

Most legal battles involving drug cases involve the legality of a traffic stop leading to the discovery of the drugs. It is important you contact a skilled drug crime attorney in San Antonio to help find the best possible action for you to take.

Understanding the Severity of Drug Crime Penalties

Where the criminal justice system considers most drug users to be weak individuals that have succumbed to addiction, the courts and the community view drug dealers very differently. In some areas in and around San Antonio, a drug dealer can be sentenced up to 99 years in prison for a first offense, for the purposes of deterring others from dealing drugs.

  • “I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney.”
    I contacted Mr. Ambrosino about an issue we were having about two months ago. He was very responsive and always easy to communicate with. If ever I had a question during the process, he was quick to respond with an answer. He was kind enough to even email me while on vacation with his own family which showed he truly cares about his clients. Mr. Ambrosino took the time to educate me on the current laws and the court process. He sent me all the court filings and paperwork for my own files and always kept me up to date. In the end we received the outcome we were hoping for and I attribute that to Mr. Ambrosino’s hard work and knowledge. I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney. Thank you for your help Mr. Ambrosino.

    Mr. Roberto Ambrosino is an amazing lawyer!!! I can not speak highly enough he is quick, efficient, and professional! I did everything online, through mail, and the phone. He kept in touch about every aspect of my case. After I sent documents and made a payment he approached the judge soon after and my case was closed. I am extremely pleased with his services. I highly recommend him. Now a few years later I reached out to him again regarding obtaining documents and again he is very communicative and on top of everything. I am a very satisfied customer.

  • “Mr. Ambrosino is a true professional. He truly delivers on his word.”
    Mr. Ambrosino is a true professional. He truly delivers on his word. When the prosecutor pushed back to prevent my acceptance into the PreTrial Diversions Program, Mr. Ambrosino fought back and earned my acceptance into PTD. Once I am done with PTD, he will be expunging my charge so that my record is clean for graduate school. Thank you Mr. Ambrosino.
