Question: What should I do if I’m charged with cocaine possession?
In Texas, if you’re charged with possession of cocaine, the first thing you need to do is interview some lawyers, find somebody you’re comfortable with, and talk about what the potential avenues are. You can fight the case, or get the case thrown out. You should also know what the potential plea deals are that will allow you to maintain your livelihood, keep your job, and keep your license. In state court, it may even be possible to get the case diverted out of the criminal system and into some sort of diversion program where it’s really about rehabilitation.
If that’s not possible, the thing you want to also look at is if there is a problem with how the officer found the drugs. If there is, a successful motion to suppress could result in the case getting thrown out. If all that fails, one thing that may be offered is a pretrial diversion. The other thing that might be offered is a deferred adjudication. Deferred adjudication is not perfect, but it does allow you to avoid the conviction and also avoid losing your driver’s license, which will happen if you’re convicted of a drug offense.
