Dallas criminal lawyer Constantine G. Anagnostis provides aggressive legal representation for drug offenses throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area. Dallas criminal lawyer Constantine G. Anagnostis understands the law, procedures, and penalties pertaining to drug charges, and will aggressively fight to protect your rights.
The Penal Code defines possession as actual care, custody, control, or management. To establish possession of a controlled substance, the State must prove two elements: that the accused exercised care, custody, control, and management over the contraband, and that the accused knew that the item possessed was contraband. Possession of the contraband does not have to be exclusive, and evidence is sufficient if it shows that the accused jointly possessed the item with another. The evidence must affirmatively link the accused to the contraband in a manner and to an extent that a reasonable inference may arise that the accused knew of the contraband’s existence and its location. The affirmative link is established by showing additional facts and circumstances that indicate the accused’s knowledge and control.
Mr. Anagnostis has experience successfully fighting and negotiating drug cases and understand how to determine whether or not evidence was obtained in violation of our client’s rights. If you have been arrested for a drug charge, he can discuss with you the pending charges, the possible range of punishment, and the various choices available for your defense.
