Dedicated in Handling Your Drug Possession Case
Search & Seizure
The defense of marijuana, cocaine, or other drug possession charges always begins with a focus on your rights, specifically search and seizure issues. A seasoned attorney will thoroughly review police reports and any other elements of the case that could help determine if your rights were violated in any way.
- Did the police officer have grounds to stop you in the first place?
- Did the police officer frisk you when you posed no safety threat?
- Did the police officer search your vehicle without probable cause?
- Did the authorities enter your home without a valid search warrant?
Houston drug lawyer Greg Tsioros knows that in any of these situations, the drug or drugs were seized unlawfully and can not be admitted as evidence against you, likely forcing the prosecution to dismiss the charges altogether.
Even if the seizure is valid, there may be insufficient evidence to show that you were in possession of the drugs. The possibility exists that you were in the vicinity of illegal drugs, but did not own them or didn't even know they were even on your premises. Affirmative links need to be established between you and the drugs. If these links are weak or can not be established, a good drug lawyer will raise reasonable doubt. If there is reasonable doubt in your marijuana or drug charge, attorney Greg Tsioros will seek to have the charges against you reduced or dismissed completely.
Options if Convicted for Drug Possession
If the evidence is strong against you on a drug possession charge, we will seek deferred adjudication. This way your future law-abiding activities can be rewarded with an order of non-diclosure, which will prevent your criminal record from being viewed by anyone but legal authorities. If your crime was a "one-time" occurrence and you keep yourself out of legal trouble, there is no reason that it should impact the rest of your life or affect your freedom. The Law Office of Greg Tsioros will work for shorter jail sentences and receiving credit for time served as well.
