Drug offenses pose a particular challenge in Travis County. On the one hand, the population in general is liberal and tends toward toleration of minor drug offenses and rehabilitation as opposed to punishment. On the other hand, the Austin Downtown Initiative Project has created a “zero-tolerance” stance from the District and County Attorney’s Office, which often results in draconian plea offers. You can fight your case, even if you were caught “red handed.”
Even the lowest level possession of marijuana conviction can have serious consequences on your driver’s license, surcharges, and your criminal record.
