Drug Crimes in Texas

Drug crimes are one of the most common reasons for criminal arrests. When coupled with overzealous law enforcement officials, it is no wonder why our country has one of the highest prison rates in the world.

According to Texas law, all drugs are divided into four penalty groups. Penalty Group 1 includes cocaine, methamphetamine, opioids. Penalty Group 2 includes ecstasy and PCP. Penalty Group 3 includes opioids not included in Penalty Group 1, while Penalty Group 4 includes opioids not included in Penalty Groups 1 and 3.

Common types of drug crimes include:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug possession with intent
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Drug sale and distribution
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug trafficking

Drug Crime Penalties

Depending on the type of drug, the quantity of the drug and whether it was for personal use or being distributed to others, a person can be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony.

A criminal conviction for a drug crime can lead to serious consequences such as:

  • Lengthy jail or prison sentence
  • A criminal record
  • Expensive fines
  • Driver's license suspension

People who are convicted of a drug crime may have trouble finding employment, since many employers hesitate to hire someone with a criminal past.

Drug charges should never "stick" if you can show the prosecutor, judge or jury that your constitutional rights were violated prior to law enforcement seizing the drugs. Even if your constitutional rights were NOT violated, the government still must prove beyond all reasonable doubt that the drugs were in your possession.
