Have you been arrested for possession of drugs or selling drugs? Depending on the type and the amount of illegal drugs you are found to have in your possession, penalties span from third-degree felony charges to a first-degree felony. The maximum penalty for drug possession is life, or 99 years, in jail, and/or fines up to $250,000.
Texas is known to have some of the harshest penalties for drug violations in the nation.
These serious penalties on your background record could also make it hard for you to find a good job in the future and may limit other opportunities such as home loans, student financial aid, housing applications, and even access to your children.
