Texas Drug Crime Penalties

Drug charges can include possession, sales or distribution, cultivation, manufacture, and trafficking. Drug charges can range from misdemeanors carrying penalties of up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000 all the way to a first-degree felony punishable by life in prison and/or a fine of up to $250,000.

Texas has established four classes of controlled substances, which each have their own set of penalties. These include illegal street drugs such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and fentanyl; substances considered drugs such as THC oil and others; and even unauthorized prescription drugs such as opiates.

Texas has some of the harshest laws against drug crimes in the country. While other states have legalized the use of medical and recreational marijuana, even a small amount of this substance can bring criminal charges against you in Texas. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your drug offense, you could be facing jail or prison time along with hefty fines. Conviction of a drug offense in Texas, can lead to a permanent criminal record that can make it difficult to secure future jobs, housing, educational opportunities, or professional licenses.

Common Mistakes in Handling Drug Charges

When facing drug charges, individuals often make several critical mistakes that can adversely affect the outcome of their case. Understanding these missteps is the first step toward avoiding them:

  • Talking to Law Enforcement Without an Attorney: Many individuals believe they can "talk their way out" of charges by speaking to police without legal representation. This can lead to self-incrimination.
  • Posting Details on Social Media: Sharing details about the case or their personal life during pending charges can provide prosecutors with additional evidence.
  • Ignoring Legal Advice: Disregarding the advice of a legal professional based on research or advice from non-lawyers can lead to detrimental legal decisions.
  • Failing to Appear in Court: Missing court dates can lead to additional charges and a negative perception by the court.
  • Not Taking the Charges Seriously: Underestimating the severity of drug charges can lead to a lack of preparation and engagement in the defense process.

  • Protecting Your Rights: An attorney ensures your rights are protected throughout the legal process, especially during interrogations.
