Possession with the Intent to Distribute
Let Our Experienced Bryan Drug Defense Attorney Fight for You
In Texas, those convicted of
drug crimes can be severely punished. Even if you were in possession of a small amount
of certain controlled substances, you could be thrown in jail for a long
period of time, especially if you intended to distribute the drugs. Evidence
which can be used to show your intent, such as a scale, small bags, and
large amounts of cash, can be used against you in a court of law.
We understand how frustrating this conviction can be. Not only are you
susceptible to serve a jail sentence and pay fines, but also receive permanent
damage to your reputation. Our experienced legal team is prepared to seek
the justice you deserve by preparing a solid defense strategy and thoroughly
investigating the charge.

Penalty Group Classifications
Based on §481.112 of the Texas Controlled Substances Act, a suspect
person the offense of possession with intent to distribute if the person
knowingly manufactures, delivers or possesses with intent to deliver a
controlled substance. What determines the offense level are the kind of
drug and amount distributed.
The penalty group classifications are the following:
- Penalty Group 1 – Cocaine, Heroin, Ketamine, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone,
- Penalty Group 1a – LSD
- Penalty Group 2 – Ecstasy, PCP, Marinol, Mescaline
- Penalty Group 3 – Ritalin, Hydrocodone (less than 300 mg.), Valium, Xanex
- Penalty Group 4 – Morphine, Motofen, Buprenorphine, and Pyrovalerone
No matter what kind of drug it is, if you are arrested with 400 grams or
more, you may be charged with a life term in prison and/or fines of up
to $100,000. Although for Penalty Group 1, you may be sentenced to a life
term if you are found with less than 400 grams, but more than 200 grams.
Less than a gram of a Penalty Group 1 substance is still considered a
felony, which comes with a minimum two year prison sentence and/or fines
