What is a Drug Distribution Charge?
The State of Texas has harsh penalties for drug distribution and trafficking, and typically allocates a felony charge ranging from a state jail felony to a first-degree felony. Texas statutes specify penalties for a state jail felony ranging from 180 days to two years in state jail with a possible fine of up to $10,000 to life in state prison or a term of 15 to 99 years in prison with a possible fine of up to $250,000. The conditions of the sentence is tied to the type of drug involved in the distribution and the amount of drug distributed. It is likely that prosecutors will attempt to negotiate plea deals to criminal defendants, offering less severe punishment for information, evidence and testimonial in what they would consider a bigger target defendant.
