The State of Texas takes possession of cocaine charges very seriously. As little as a gram of crack cocaine in your tenure at the time of arrest can result in felony charges. The cocaine possession penalties and jail time will depend upon the quantity of possession. For example: conviction for less than one gram of cocaine may be punishable by up to two years in a state jail facility and/or by a fine not to exceed $10,000. Any or all of the state jail time and/or fines may be probated, in an qualified case, for up to five years.
If you have the financial means to do so, I would hire an attorney whom specializes in this area in order to avoid jail time, ect.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should need anything further.
