Arrested for Delivery of Cocaine?
Tough Defense from a Houston Cocaine Lawyer
In order to be charged with Delivery of Cocaine in the state of Texas,
it is not necessary for you to have actually delivered the drugs. Any
attempt to transfer cocaine to another person is enough for a criminal
prosecution. There are five ways to commit an offense under
- an offer to sell
- possession with intent to deliver
- actual transfer
- constructive transfer
Attorney Mark Morasch: Named One of Houston's Top Lawyer 2008-2012
For a delivery of cocaine case, the State must prove that you: (1) exercised
care, custody, control, or management over the cocaine; (2) intended to
deliver or delivered the cocaine to another; (3) knew the substance in
your possession was cocaine.
Delivery of at least 4 grams but less than 200 grams of cocaine can result
in a minimum of 5 years up to life-in-prison and a fine of $10,000.00.
To put this in perspective 4 to 200 grams equals .0088 to .44 pounds,
or .14 to 7.055 ounces.
