During a conversation with a good friend of mine, and a great Houston Criminal Defense Attorney, Shelby Burns, I found out there is a new pre-trial diversion program in Galveston County for individuals charged with certain misdemeanor crimes. To be eligible, you must have no prior criminal history except traffic citations. And no felony offenses will be eligible for the program.
Officers pulled over my client. During the stop, officers smelled Marijuana. My client admitted he had the weed. Officers began to search and ultimately found the weed.
