POM Facing Criminal Charges? Protect Your Freedom Before Time Runs Out

San Antonio POM Defense Attorneys

Have You Been Charged with Possession of Marijuana?

Possession of marijuana (POM) is defined under Texas law as knowingly or intentionally possessing a usable quantity of marijuana at a specific time and place. The law further defines possession as controlling, managing, taking custody of, or caring for something. Depending on the amount of marijuana found in your possession, you will be facing either a misdemeanor or felony charge. A conviction will result in having a permanent criminal record that can be problematic for your future.

If you have been charged for possession of marijuana, our San Antonio POM defense lawyers can help. We have a history of successful results. With a former prosecutor on our legal team, we have an in-depth knowledge of how the State of Texas prosecutes criminal cases. We can use that knowledge and all of the legal skills and resources we have developed over the years to help you seek a favorable outcome.

Possession of Marijuana Cases in Texas

POM charges are based on the weight of marijuana found in your possession.

Below are examples of how the quantity affects POM charges:

  • A possession of less than two ounces is charged as a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,000
  • A possession of two to four ounces is charged as a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000
  • A possession of more than four ounces is charged as a state jail felony punishable by a mandatory minimum sentence

Many POM cases are based on small quantities held by a person for recreational use. With the help of our criminal defense attorneys, these types of cases can often be settled with less harsh penalties, such as probation or drug treatment programs, or they may even be dismissed.

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia in Texas

Drug paraphernalia refers to items used to package, process, or use a drug. In marijuana cases, paraphernalia can include items such as pipes and bongs. Even innocuous household items like baggies, scales, spoons, or envelopes can be labeled as paraphernalia. Sometimes, an individual arrested for POM can also be charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, which is classified as a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $500.

      Our client was reportedly heard making terroristic threats by some members of his seventh-grade class. Police charged him with a felony. Our client was a boy scout who was well-liked by teachers but had developed ADHD and was being bullied. The State offered our client 1 year of deferred probation.

    • Dismissed DWI

      Our client left 6 th Street at 2:00 AM after celebrating an anniversary and fell asleep at the wheel. He was arrested for DWI at 4:30 AM and blew a .138 on the breathalyzer. The Prosecutor was initially unwilling to negotiate, but we found favorable evidence on the dash cam video, which lead us to question the validity of our client’s consent to take a breathalyzer test.

    • Dismissed Assault Family Violence

      During a dispute with her boyfriend, our client threw a brass statue against a wall, which ended up bouncing and hitting him. He called the police and our client was arrested for Assault Family Violence.

    • Charges Dismissed Sexual Assault Investigation

      Our client was a Texas State student who had a bright career ahead of him. He was accused of sexual assault by a classmate and an overzealous law enforcement officer proceeded to arrest him without a thorough investigation. Our team was able to fight for our client by putting together a defense that showed that the actions between the two were consensual and that his accuser had ulterior motives. The District Attorney's Office agreed and dismissed the case.

    • Dismissed Possession of Controlled Substance

      Our client was pulled over for expired registration. Police smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle and conducted a probable cause search. Police found marijuana and pills containing a controlled substance, and the State charged our client with a felony. Our client was already facing multiple misdemeanor charges in another county.
