Criminal Defense of Felony THC Possession

Last week, Chuck Lanehart successfully defended two college students on drug possession cases in a rural Texas County. The clients were accused of possessing a total of 500 grams of THC, which could have resulted in a first-degree felony conviction carrying a punishment range of 5-99 years in prison or life in prison, with an optional $50,000 fine.

Instead, Chuck presented a compelling mitigation case on behalf of the clients, who today were each placed on a one-year pretrial diversion. Upon completion of the pretrial diversion, each client’s case will be dismissed and each client will be eligible for an expunction.
