Results Matter When Facing Drug Manufacture And Delivery Charges
Texas takes drug crimes seriously. The state enforces strict penalties for the manufacture or delivery of controlled substances. Specific penalties for drug manufacture and delivery charges are based on the weight and type of controlled substance involved. The Texas Controlled Substances Act classifies controlled substances into penalty groups by their probability for abuse. The consequences can be very serious, as someone caught possessing as little as four grams of any substance in Penalty Group 1 with intent to deliver (not even necessarily sell) can face up to 99 years in a Texas prison if convicted.
Additionally, someone arrested on this type of charge in what’s known as a Drug Free Zone (for example near a school, church, or park) will face enhanced penalties. If you or someone you love has been charged with drug manufacture or drug delivery, it is critical to have a skilled criminal defense lawyer on your side as soon as possible. As an aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney in San Marcos who is licensed to practice in all Texas state courts as well as in Federal Court, I will fight to protect your rights.
Your Best Line Of Defense Against Drug Charges
The state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you knowingly manufactured, delivered, or were in possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in order to make these charges stick. Often times, this is done through circumstantial evidence such as the presence of scales, packaging materials, or large amounts of cash. In any case, an experienced defense lawyer can identify potential defenses and implement an effective strategy. It is always distinctly possible that even if the evidence against you is strong, the police violated your rights or made other crucial errors in the process of building their case against you. I will analyze each and every piece of evidence presented by the prosecution in order to look for ways to attack the State’s case. During our initial meetings we will discuss the circumstances of your arrest in order to help determine if the processes and evidence gathered by the police officers could potentially be an issue for the Government down the road.
