What Do The Different Penalty Groups Mean?
Texas drug laws are extremely strict. Charges are classified into different groups and all depend on the specifics of the situation. Penalty group 1 involves substances such as cocaine, codeine (not listed in penalty group 3 or 4) and hydrocodone (not listed in penalty group 3). Penalty group 2 includes substances such as MDMA, Mescaline and Psilocybin. There are additional groups with other substances assigned to each group. Understandably, this can be quite confusing. As an experienced criminal defense attorney, Mr. Hohl is here to answer all of your questions.
The biggest factor revolves around what kind of drug you are found with. Charges will also depend on whether or not you have any paraphernalia, prior offenses, how the drug was stored and whether or not you are found with large amounts of money. It is important to know that marijuana charges are in their own category and have their own set of penalties. Mr. Hohl is here to thoroughly discuss your case and help you understand your options.
