Have You Been Arrested for a Drug Crime?

Criminal Defense Attorney in Cleburne, TX

Drug crimes involve all types of controlled substance, such as cocaine, heroin, meth, marijuana and even prescription drugs. The most common drug crime is drug possession, or the offense of possessing a controlled substance for which one does not have a legal prescription or legal authority to possess. There are, however, many other types of drug offenses.

Here is a list of various types of drug crimes with which a person can be charged in Texas:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug delivery (which includes drug sales)
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug trafficking
  • Marijuana offenses (including cultivation)
  • Offenses involving prescription drugs
  • Possession or delivery of drug paraphernalia

Penalty Groups in Texas

The state of Texas divides controlled substances into four Penalty Groups. The penalties that result from a drug conviction will depend on which Penalty Group the drug is in, as well as how much of the drug is involved. An offender's criminal history will also play a factor in how severe the penalties are. Drug crimes can be prosecuted as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the details of the drug crime. Misdemeanors can potentially result in jail time, while felonies can potentially lead to prison sentences. In some case, a defendant will be ordered to complete a drug treatment program in place of incarceration.
