Meth in Texas
Methamphetamines have become a major problem in Texas in recent years. This has resulted in judges and law enforcement taking a harder stance against those accused of meth possession. If you are facing charges of possession of methamphetamines, you are facing serious consequences including prison time. Having a defense attorney on your side during this difficult time could improve your chances at obtaining a positive result.
Meth is classified with the most addictive and dangerous drugs under Texas law. This means that you will face the harshest possible penalties if convicted of possession of methamphetamine. While no attorney can guarantee results, your attorney should be able to promise their tireless effort towards a potential positive resolution on your case.
