What matters is what the State can prove. Even if you did not have actual possession, you could have been a party to an attempted drug delivery (and could even possibly be charged with possession even though it was being stuffed under the front mats - suggests that it was out in the open - where you also had care, custody, control of it.) Texas allows convictions for those who aid and abet - help - commit crimes. You could easily fall into that category. Lawyer up.

Anyone might be charged with a crime, regardless of whether he or she has in fact broken the law. An attorney can assist you with evaluating the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to plea bargain or go to trial. If you were to be found guilty, then an attorney can assist you with presenting mitigation, allocution, and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence. and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence.
