Without a Trace

 Posted on December 03, 2009 in Uncategorized

The rumor that I mentioned on October 30th, that the DA's office was going to stop accepting charges on trace controlled-substance cases, has been verified. Prosecutors were notified today by email that starting January 1st the Harris County DA's Office was going to stop filing possession cases on people in possession of less than.01 grams of a controlled substance.

This is terrible news-aside from cutting into criminal-defense lawyers' work, it will allow the DA's Office to dedicate much more of its resources to the cases of people who are actually a danger to others.
