Things to think about if you are charged with Possession of Marijuana, POM

There are many factors that go into the analysis of a Possession of Marijuana, POM, case, and you need a San Marcos Criminal Defense Lawyer to guide you through the process.  First, it is important to establish if the Court your charge is being heard in has jurisdiction to hear your case.  County lines are not governed by city lines, and it is always worth noting where exactly you were ticketed or arrested for Possession of Marijuana, POM, to see if that area falls within the jurisdiction of the court.  Second, the officer must have properly pulled over/detained you to eventually conduct the search of your person, vehicle, or residence.  There are very serious Constitutional restraints on the Law Enforcement in conducting searches and seizures.  You should contact a Hays County Criminal Defense Lawyer to go over the specific facts of your case.  Third, should you take your case to trial, the State would have to prove that you were in “Possession” of the marijuana.  Like most things in the law, “Possession”, has a specific definition.  The Texas Penal Code, Section 1.07(39) says “Possession” means actual care, custody, control, or management.  Possession is not always a clean cut issue and you need a qualified San Marcos Marijuana Lawyer to analyze the facts of your case.  These factors are only a few of the very important issues you need to discuss with your San Marcos Criminal Defense Lawyer when you have been charged with Possession of Marijuana, POM.  Contact a Hays County Criminal Defense Lawyer today to learn more about what you can expect.

While there are many worse crimes than Possession of Marijuana, POM, there are other factors to think about when formulating your defense. For example, if you are convicted of Possession of Marijuana, your Driver’s License may be suspended for 6 months.  Another crime that you need to be aware of if you are charged with Possession of Marijuana, POM, is Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, or PDP.  A Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, PDP, is a charge that is not always charged against those who have been alleged to be in Possession of Marijuana, POM, even though they may have been in possession of Paraphernalia at the time of their ticketing or arrest.  It is very important to discuss this issue with the Hays County Criminal Defense Lawyer you end up hiring.

  1. If you found this site, you are probably looking for answers. I hope my website has those answers, but if it doesn’t, ask them here, or call, or email my office. I pride myself on being accessible to my clients.

    One of the most common complaints of Attorney’s clients is that their attorney is not accessible. I am looking to change that. As one human being to another, please understand that I do have a life outside of this practice, but I am proud of my work, and will take time to respond to all inquiries. I invite praise and critique of my work.

    So if you have seen any Courtroom Drams, maybe a few Episode of Law & Order, or the Lincoln Lawyer because you like Morisa Tomei (guilty), you may have learned a little about the legal system. In Texas, the US Constitution, the US Supreme Court, and the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct require that material favorable to a Defendant be disclosed to the Defendant.

    In this particular case, all Mr. Simmons wanted was his Secret Spy plane surveillance videos. If they were only produced, than the jury might believe that at the time he was severely paranoid because he was under surveillance by the US Government.

    I often think I understand the difficulty of a Prosecutor’s job because they do not get to choose the defendant that they must prosecute, just as I do not always get to choose the client that I am appointed to. While reading this article, I cannot help but wonder if this man has been thoroughly checked out to be Mentally Competent to stand trial.

    In this case, I seriously doubt Barry Scheck and the Innocence Project will be beating down his prison cell 20 years from now with new evidence that low flying surveillance planes were watching Mr. Simmons. My only concern is that the prosecutors down in Hays County do a good job in making sure that Mr. Simmons is competent to stand trial.
