Tarrant County Marijuana Possession Defense
If you have been charged with possession of marijuana and this is the first time you’ve ever been in trouble with the law, you probably have more questions than you’re aware of right now.
At the law office of David E. Cook, in Bedford, Texas, you’ll have an attorney with 15 years of criminal defense experience available to answer those questions honestly, while working hard to protect your rights and secure the best possible outcome to your case every step of the way.
Pretrial Diversion for First-Time Offenders
If the possession of marijuana charge you’re currently facing is your first offense, we may be able to secure placement for you in a pretrial diversion program.
Essentially, participation in this program will require you to do three things:
- Perform 24 to 80 hours of community service
- Complete a drug offender education program
- Pass two or three drug tests (while failing none)
The primary benefit of participation and successful completion of this program is getting the case dismissed. Later, this will enable you to get an expunction and avoid the damaging effects of having a permanent criminal record.
