angry prosecutor

I live in Texas and last August I let a friend store some things at my house for a couple of months and occasionally borrow my truck. The police were watching him, therefore watching my house. In October the police executed a search warrant on my house while I was gone to pick up my child. They stopped me on the road and searched my truck and found 14 grams of meth on my back floorboard. I explained that my friend had borrowed my truck the night before, but they didn't believe me and I was arrested. I have never been in trouble in my life except 2 speeding tickets 20 years ago. I had a $25,000 bond set and was out of jail after 2 days. Yesterday was my first court appearance and my lawyer was told "no deals". They offered me 10 years and no trial. I am devastated. My lawyer said the prosecutor was very angry and wouldn't budge. I can't believe what is happening. I am a single parent with a 7 year old son who has no contact with his father. I am scared and don't know what to do. Apparently my "friend" is putting everything on me and since it was my house and my truck, I'm stuck. Is it fair to send me away for 10 years when none of this was my fault. Is the prosecutor just looking for a conviction? I've offered to do anything, but they won't listen to me. Please give me some advice. Thank you.




I am not a lawyer, just compassionate to your situation. If I were you I would try to contact your local paper and find a media outlet who will tell your side of the story and create some public outcry. This is ridiculous, you should also try to draw attention to the friends past history or criminal offenses, also, get another lawyer. I am so sorry, I have had several negative incidences with Texas police myself, i live in Texas too. Get another lawyer and get some support for your situation.
