Steep Penalties for Victimless Crime
Although studies increasingly show that harsh drugs laws are counter-effective, Texas prosecutors continue to push for the harshest penalties under the law. Many people are caught off guard that as drugs are becoming de-criminalized across many states, Texas laws still carry very steep penalties. Even first time offenders charged with a drug crime sometimes face mandatory jail time, excessive fines, or a black eye on their record that makes future work opportunities scarce.
Common Types of Drug Offenses
The consequences of being convicted of a drug related offense can have far reaching effects on your future, even after your court sanctioned penalties have been meted out. Some common drug charges include:
- Drug Possession
- Drug Sales
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
- Drug conspiracy
The penalties for each case depend on many factors, such as the quantity of drugs involved, a person’s past criminal record, and the admissibility of certain evidence.
