Bail for Drug Delivery Charges in Texas

Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance in Texas

All forms of drug dealing in Texas fall under the charge of manufacture or delivery of drugs. There is a distinct difference between manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance versus possession of drugs, which is evident by the severity of the punishment.

Criminal Penalties for Drug Delivery in Texas

Transporting drugs is just as serious of a crime as making and selling them to the public. When you transport drugs, knowingly or otherwise, you can face a criminal charge in the State of Texas. It can be hard to prove, but if you can convince the court that you unknowingly transported illegal drugs, you may be acquitted of any charges. Police may catch you delivering drugs using an undercover officer, by conducting surveillance on an exchange, or by getting a confidential informant to testify in court.

In Texas, controlled substances are divided into five penalty groups, plus a marijuana category—penalties depend on the type of drug, and how much you’ve delivered. Drugs from each group include cocaine, LSD, ecstasy, Xanax, and compounds containing dionine. Marijuana has its own category and is sometimes treated a little more lightly compared to other categories.

When found with one gram and less than four grams of drugs, for example, you can be charged with a second-degree felony and face two to 20 years in a state prison as well as a fine of up to $10,000. When caught delivering a quarter of an ounce of marijuana, you’ll be charged with a class B misdemeanor and be punished with a maximum of 180 days in jail and no more than a $2,000 fine. Penalties can be significantly more severe if you’re caught within 1,000 feet of a school or youth center, or within 300 feet of a public swimming pool or arcade; in fact, the felony charge can be increased by one degree.
