Have you been arrested for a Controlled Substance? If so, you need to have that substance checked. In a new Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas case, the defendant plead guilty to felony cocaine possession and the sample was never tested in a lab. In fact, the arresting officer used a field test kit and the sample was so small that the entire sample of the so called drug was used in the analysis. Years later when a lab test was asked for it could not be performed. There simply was no drug sample left to test. If you have been arrested for a drug possession offense such as cocaine, methamphetamine, etc., make sure it is tested by a lab or you may have an issue. Better yet, hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.
