Texas severely punishes those individuals convicted of the manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance. Prosecutors and law enforcement agencies commit substantial resources to the investigation, arrest, and prosecution of people engaged in the making or distribution of drugs. Undercover operations, informants and search warrants are some of the tactics used to gather evidence for a manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance prosecution.

Protecting your rights when the State accuses you of manufacture or delivery of controlled substance demands the skills, the knowledge, and the experience of an Austin Criminal Defense Attorney, like Jason Trumpler. You should contact a skilled, competent, aggressive drug charges lawyer as soon as you become aware that law enforcement has targeted you as the subject of a drug investigation.

Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance in Texas

Unlike some other states that have separate laws prohibiting the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, Texas combines manufacture and delivery into a single charge of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance in section 481 of the Texas Health and Safety Code. Under Texas law, it is a crime to knowingly:

  • manufacture, deliver, or possess a controlled substance.

Penalties Imposed Upon Conviction

The law creates five categories, known as penalty groups, of controlled substances in Texas. One of the most common controlled substances is cocaine. Cocaine is in penalty group I. The severity of the offense and the extent of the penalties imposed at sentencing depend upon the quantity of drugs and the penalty group.

Sentences for penalty group 1 violations depend upon the aggregate weight of the controlled substance. Examples of the different sentences and the weights involved in each include:

  • Less than one gram: 180 days to two years in state jail and fines up to $10,000
  • More than one gram, but less than four grams: Up to 20 years in prison and fines up to $10,000
  • Between four grams and 200 grams: Five to 99 years in prison and fines up to $10,000
  • Between 200 and 400 grams: 10 to 99 years in prison and fines up to $100,000

Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance Defenses

Most drug prosecutions rely upon the testimony of informants and searches and seizures of evidence. Austin drug possession lawyer Jason Trumpler knows that a successful defense strategy might include attacking the reliability of the informant and challenging the legality of the search and seizure.

Attacking the prosecution’s evidence might not succeed in winning a dismissal of the charges, but weakening the case against the accused could force the State to agree to a reduction of the charges or a reduction of the sentence.
