Texas man facing life sentence for drug charges

Texas residents could face particularly serious consequences following a drug arrest. Sentences can be lengthy, and even possession of a small amount of marijuana could lead to felony charges. The potential sentences are even harsher for people facing charges of distribution or delivery of drugs.

In one case, a 19-year-old from College Station is facing drug charges that could lead to a life sentence in prison after a January 2018 arrest at his apartment. Police executed a search warrant on the house after reports from other detectives that the home could be a site for drug sales. Once inside the apartment, the police found evidence of a significant quantity of drugs of various types and arrested the man.

Police say that they found marijuana, THC and 7,278 Alprazolam pills as well as a significant quantity of cash and the type of digital scale that is often used to weigh and measure drugs. The man was charged with delivery of 4.1 pounds of Alprazolam, which is a first-degree felony in Texas. This charge alone could carry up to a life sentence in prison. In addition, he was charged with delivery of 37.6 grams of THC, which carries a sentence of up to 99 years in prison as a first-degree felony. He was also charged with possession of seven pounds of marijuana, for which he could serve 10 years in prison.

The 19-year-old is not alone in facing harsh sentencing after being convicted on serious drug charges. Possession of any quantity of marijuana, THC or hash oil in Texas can lead to incarceration. People facing charges for drug offenses should consult with a criminal defense lawyer to see what strategies can be used to counter the allegations.
