Pretrial Diversion Secured for Client Accused of THC Possession

Chuck Lanehart successfully negotiated a pretrial diversion for a young college-age girl who was accused of drug possession of THC, a second-degree felony.

She was facing a possible 20-year prison sentence. Chuck made effective use of advocacy skills, mitigation and other character evidence. Chuck’s client will not be charged or indicted for a crime, and upon completion of the pretrial diversion program, her case will be expunged.

The firm defends students and adults charged with a crime in the South Plains. Since Colorado legalized marijuana, more Lubbock citizens are being charged with marijuana possession. THC concentrate and edibles carry severe penalties for Texans caught with possession. Learn more about edible types, Texas law and defense strategies on our blog.
