Heroin Charges in Texas

Call a Dallas Drug Crimes Attorney

In Texas, the laws are strict on those who are found possessing illegal narcotics—heroin being particularly restricted. If one were to have less than a gram of heroin, at the very least, it can be considered a felony and can lead to the possibility of jail time.

If you are facing charges for heroin possession or distribution, do not wait to seek legal representation. You must secure a Dallas drug crime lawyer right away to begin working on your defense!

How Are Heroin Crimes Punished?

Heroin charges are never taken lightly. As you may already be aware, having just less than a gram can already lead to severe penalties. To compound matters, if you are found guilty of possessing heroin with the intention of selling it, you can receive a possible life sentence as punishment.

These are the following punishments for heroin possession:

Less than 1 gram of heroin (State jail felony):

  • At least 180 days and up to 24 months in Texas State Jail
  • Fine of up to $10, 000

1 to 4 grams of heroin (3rd degree felony):

  • At least 2 years and up to 10 years in state prison
  • Fine of up to $10, 000

4 to 200 grams of heroin (2nd degree felony):

  • At least 2 years and up to 20 years in state prison
  • Fine of up to $10, 000

200 to 400 grams of heroin (1st degree felony):

  • At least 5 years and up to 99 years (or life) in state prison
  • Fine of up to $10, 000

400 grams or more of heroin (1st degree felony):

  • At least 10 years and up to life in state prison
  • Fine of up to $100, 000
