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 section 481.112:

  • manufacture
  • an offer to sell
  • possession with intent to deliver
  • actual transfer
  • constructive transfer

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.
