Man sentenced to life in prison for meth possession

On June 28, a Texas man was sentenced by a Comal County jury to life in prison after he was convicted on multiple drug charges. The 56-year-old man was originally taken into custody on March 23, 2015, after a trooper found him sitting in his truck with a syringe full of meth in his hands.

The man was found sitting bare-chested in his truck on Interstate 35 with melted candle wax on his torso. He refused to stop when the trooper commanded him to, which led to a struggle. Following a search, meth-filled syringes, lube, children's clothing, male enhancement pills and frozen cucumbers in a cooler, among other items were discovered. He was also convicted of tampering with evidence after attempting to break a meth-filled syringe before it was discovered in his vehicle.

It was also discovered that the man had a history of sexual deviancy. In November 2012, for example, he was found by a Comal County deputy sitting naked in his truck. When questioned, he admitted to being engaged in sexual acts with a vegetable. The jury deliberated for less than one hour before sentencing him to life in prison.

Because Texas takes accusations of drug possession seriously, those who are facing charges could also be facing life-impacting consequences, especially if there are aggravating factors in the case. For example, a person accused of possessing meth could face a lengthy prison sentence and other associated penalties. Dependent on specific circumstances surrounding the case, a criminal law attorney could mount a strong defense against the accusations. For example, the attorney could seek to reduce the consequences by helping the accused person get rehabilitated or arguing that the drugs did not belong to the defendant.
