I am a member of the NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) Legal Committee. Like you, I wish that the government would spend its time helping to solve problems rather than creating them in the form of an unreasonable, unworkable, and unjust marijuana prohibition laws. Unfortunately, that’s not the world we live in today.
The bad news is, your record is in jeopardy. The records of your ticket, booking, and prosecution are public records in Texas. Unless your case is handled properly and thoroughly, your record could stay public forever.
The good news is, I have years of experience successfully handling possession of marijuana cases in the Austin/Travis County area. While every case is different, there are certain realistic best and worst-case scenarios that you should be aware of before you worry about going to jail or other possible consequences. I will do everything possible to get your case dismissed so you can expunge the records of your arrest.
I truly feel that the criminalization of marijuana (or “marihuana” as it’s spelled in Texas law) is a threat to every American’s civil liberties. I consider it a privilege to defend the unjustly accused, because I believe you cannot be justly accused of violating an unjust law.
