MANDATORY MINIMUMS FOR DRUG MANUFACTURING
Texas drug laws are not lenient. The state is aggressive — indeed, famously so — in its prosecution and punishment of individuals who violate policies regarding controlled substances.
Penalties for manufacturing or cultivating drugs can be especially severe. In most cases, there is a mandatory minimum sentence of six months in jail. However, depending on the drug and the quantity thereof, those charged can face prison terms of up to 99 years — as well as tens of thousands of dollars in fines. As such, it is important to find an experienced attorney who can help protect your reputation and your rights.
Davis-Jones Law offers aggressive defense representation to individuals facing drug charges. We take a solutions-based approach and seek the best possible outcomes for our clients. Based in Austin, and serving throughout central Texas, we are adept at negotiating with opposing counsel to reduce charges and penalties. We examine every aspect of a given case and, whenever possible, seek to have the allegations dismissed.
Defense Against A Full Spectrum Of Manufacturing Charges
In manufacturing and trafficking cases, prosecutors establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant's ultimate intent was to distribute the drug. Yet one's intentions or motivations can be difficult to prove and, drawing on more than 10 years in practice, our firm is skilled in challenging the prosecution on this count.
We offer assertive, effective protection for all manner of related charges, including cases stemming from:
- Ecstasy and "molly"
- Ritalin and other "study drugs"
What About Marijuana?
Marijuana is classified differently than most other drugs. Individuals found with relatively small amounts are charged with misdemeanors rather than felonies. Nevertheless, the penalties — imprisonment and fines — remain harsh.
Moreover, individuals in possession of marijuana "edibles" are especially at risk. Texas considers hash oil — the active, THC-carrying ingredient in most edibles — to be more dangerous than marijuana itself, and treats all related offenses as felony-level crimes.
