Houston Drug Manufacturing Attorney
Drug manufacturing and cultivation cases in Texas face harsher sentences than simple possession cases. Anyone who is convicted of a manufacturing felony could be sentenced to life imprisonment and as much as $250,000 in fines. Drug manufacturing and dealing is always considered a felony. Being charged with drug manufacturing has the potential to change your life forever.
Drug manufacturing charges may be brought against anyone who is directly or proximally involved in the making of an illegal substance. Even talking about helping a drug manufacturing enterprise may be classified as a drug manufacturing act in court. Anyone who provides ingredients to drug manufacturers knowingly may also face charges. Even if a source provider claims ignorance about manufacturing, but a prosecutor or investigator can provide enough evidence that the provider should have known, he may still be charged and convicted under drug manufacturing laws in Texas.

Penalties for Manufacturing
For all of the drug penalty groups, the penalty for manufacturing ranges from a state jail felony to a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd degree felony that could leave you facing life in prison. The amount of drug being manufactured and the size of the operation along with previous criminal records and other factors will all play into a prosecution’s drug manufacturing case. Being found in the vicinity of a school district or other drug free zone means that you could face even more extensive sentencing. With the potential for state and federal charges, drug manufacturing cases can become complex quickly.
In addition to serving a prison sentence and paying excessive fees and fines associated with a conviction, a person may face additional sanctions such as the suspension of a driver’s license, a strict probationary period after prison, and rehabilitation programs. Understanding the possible outcomes of a conviction are only part of the puzzle when it comes to fighting a drug manufacturing charge.
