The consequences of a conviction for illegal drug possession in Texas can be harsh, but just because you’ve been arrested for possession, it does not mean that you will be convicted. A prosecutor must prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that you were in possession of a controlled substance, and your own defense attorney will work to cast doubt on the prosecution’s case.

Do the Police Frame or Entrap Drug Suspects?
Planting evidence and “entrapping” suspects is rare in Texas in the 21st century. But police and prosecutors do make mistakes in drug possession cases, and when they do, a good defense attorney will take advantage of those mistakes.
Your defense lawyer may be able to cast doubt on the state’s case against you by presenting evidence that the drugs were found during an illegal search or by insisting that the drugs were not yours because they were not found on your person or in a location that indicated the drugs were obviously yours. If you believe that the police violated your rights, that’s the first thing you should tell your attorney.
