Another successful case at the D’Amore Law Firm for criminal defense in Dallas, Texas! We just recently went to trial with our client facing felony charges for possession of methamphetamine and after trail our client’s punishment was reduced to a class c misdemeanor. No longer a felony, they are being convicted of misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, and only required to face a three month deferred probation as their punishment. Deferred probation in the state of Texas is usually offered to first time offenders of the law, and is a great deal for those seeking to avoid time in jail.
This includes community supervision, and often when the sentenced time period is complete with no other infractions with the law, the client is usually free of conviction. In many situations, individuals are able to keep these records confidential from the public eye. Three months of probation is an excellent punishment to walk away from this level of accusation. On average those convicted of drug possession such as a methamphetamine, face severe charges do to the government’s “war on drugs”. If convicted our client could have spent time in prison, major fines, etc. With the help of our criminal defense team, we were able to do the research necessary to greatly decrease the penalties for our client’s actions.
Being accused of a crime of this magnitude is something that no individual should take lightly, because if convicted there is a chance that the punishments will be extreme depending on the crime.
