Can You Get Probation for a Felony Drug Charge in Texas?

In Texas, you can get probation for a felony drug charge. If you have never been convicted of a felony before, then Texas law mandates that the Judge must give you probation. In addition, even if you have been arrested of a felony drug charge before and even if you have a previous 12.44a, the Judge still must give you probation even if the State does not want to agree.

We Aggressively Fight to Defend Your Rights

Your future matters! Working with an aggressive can help improve your chances of securing a favorable outcome, no matter how incriminating your case may seem. Choosing the right drug crime attorney can mean the difference between facing possible jail time and walking away with a clean slate.

From going before a judge or a jury on your behalf, seeking a reduction, a conditional dismissal, deferred adjudication, probation, or mitigation of punishment, we do not simply take an easy plea bargain just to make the situation go away. When possible, we can pursue expungement or petition the court for an order of non-disclosure, which can effectively seal your criminal record.
