Possession With Intent to Distribute

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, and Methamphetamine
  • 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 up to $10,000. If found with less than 28 grams of a Penalty Group 3 or 4 substance, it is considered a felony as well.
