Drug Cases in Texas
Texas is notorious for drug-trafficking and other drug offenses. As a result, the legislature and courts have taken steps to increase the enforcement of, and penalties for, drug offenses.
Drug possession in Texas is a crime that can result in charges of various degrees. A drug case may range from a simple misdemeanor to a complex felony or a federal case. Read our complete guide regarding fines and penalties for the delivery or manufacturing of a controlled substance.
Texas statutes prohibit any person from knowingly or intentionally:
- Possessing a listed chemical with the intent to unlawfully manufacture a controlled substance; or
- Possessing or distributing a listed chemical knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that it will be used to unlawfully manufacture a controlled substance
Any person who violates this statute is guilty of a felony.
Drug Trafficking: Texas law defines drug-trafficking as knowingly selling, purchasing, manufacturing, delivering or bringing into this state, or being in actual or constructive possession of, a controlled substance. Read about new, tougher penalties for repeat drug manufacturing offenders. If you’re facing charges for distributing drugs, call a drug trafficking lawyer to start building your defense as soon as possible. Texas takes drug trafficking cases very seriously, so should you.
Drug Possession: The government must prove that the person had care, custody and control of the illegal drug. An experienced drug trafficking defense attorney will know how to attack the state’s case on this issue. There may be several defenses to possession.
Drug Smuggling: Drug smuggling is the act of transporting any controlled substance into Texas illegally with the intent to either distribute or possess it. Because drug smuggling often involves crossing state lines, it is a federal crime and follows federal sentencing guidelines.
Drug Possession with Intent to Distribute: Being charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute increases the seriousness of any drug related charge. Several factors could lead to this charge, including storing controlled substances in small packages or even having a notepad with phone numbers and schedules in the defendant’s home.
