If you are looking for an attorney in Denton, Sarah Roland is going to be your best choice. Sarah is very confident and... knowledgeable about her job and the law. Sarah is very supportive and was always available when I needed to contact her for any reason. She is also very caring with her clients, I am a UNT student and she was already aware of the steps I would need to take being that I am a student, and helped me with the process that I had to go threw with the University. I was arrested for public intoxication and Sarah was able to get my case dismissed within two months, I also never needed to go to court as she took care of everything for me. Her staff is amazing and very friendly, all questions that I had were answered almost immediately. I highly recommend Sarah Roland because there was absolutely no downside to working with her and her staff.read more

DRUG OFFENSES

Drug Charges in Denton County

Penalties for drug offenses are classified according to penalty group and weight, whether there is an allegation of manufacture/delivery, or an allegation of the offense occurring in a drug-free zone.

Marijuana and THC products are still illegal in Texas. It is still illegal to legally purchase marijuana/THC products in another state and bring them to Texas. What may be perfectly legal in another state could very well be a felony in Texas.

Possession

Possession has a legal definition. It is not limited to ownership. Under the law, possession means care, custody, control, or management over a substance. That means multiple people can be charged with possessing the same substance. And that is what happens a lot of the time. The police arrest everyone in the area. However, just because you are in an area where drugs are found does not mean you are legally guilty of possession. There must be other additional evidence to affirmatively link you to the drugs.

“Tulia” law

Also, the “Tulia” law, article 38.141 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, is an evidentiary law that was enacted several years ago to prevent against wrongful convictions when a snitch is involved. This law was named after the infamous drug cases in Tulia, Texas. In 1999, 15 percent of Tulia’s African American population was arrested, prosecuted, and sentenced to decades in prison based on the uncorroborated testimony of a federally funded undercover officer with a record of racial impropriety. The defendants have since been pardoned. And now we have the Tulia law which says that the testimony of a snitch working on behalf of the police isn’t enough to convict a person. There must be additional evidence, and proof of the commission of the offense alone is insufficient.

There are really only 3 ways to respond when you have a drug case:

    1. Continuing doing what you have been doing and hope you don’t get caught.
    2. Become a confidential informant or source to try to work off or down your case.
    3. Get clean and sober – essentially do a 180°.

Often, Sarah advocates a comprehensive approach to defending drug cases. After all, the goal is to have the best possible result and to prevent a second case from ever happening. Therefore, sometimes treatment is also a necessary part of a defense in addition to a legal defense. Talk with Sarah, a skilled drug crime lawyer in North Texas.

Types of Drug Cases Sarah Handles:
