Far too many people make the mistake of thinking that an arrest for a small amount of drugs is not a big deal. Many decide to plead guilty to the charges without ever speaking to a lawyer, which is a major error. A misdemeanor drug conviction on your record can cause serious complications in your life, so it is best to consult an attorney before deciding what to do.
At the Law Office of Lane D. Thibodeaux, in Bryan, we take defending misdemeanor drug offenses seriously. We seek dismissals in these cases whenever possible, in an effort to keep clients out of jail and avoid marks on their criminal records. If a conviction does occur, we help clients seal or expunge their records whenever possible in order to prevent the record from damaging the client's job prospects down the road.
If you are accused of a Class B or Class C misdemeanor, let us help protect your future. Contact a Texas drug misdemeanor defense attorney at the Law Office of Lane D. Thibodeaux for a free consultation today. Call 979-775-5700.
Understanding the Charges
Most drug misdemeanors result in either Class B or Class C charges. Class C carries the lightest penalty — a $500 fine and no jail time. Class B is more serious, carrying penalties of up to 180 days in jail, a $2,000 fine or both. A conviction for either class of offense will go on your criminal record.
