Husband in jail for possession

Ask a Lawyer


Country: United States of America
State: Texas

my husband is in harries county jail for possession of marijuana (less than one cigarette) and driving with a suspended license (this is his 2nd dwell, the last was 1yr and 2mo ago). he has a felony on his record from 1997 or 1998 for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. how long is the usual sentence for this type of crime?


The combination of events may require he spend a few weeks or so in jail--but hire counsel to try to work out some supervision solution--there is still a chance...
