Manufacturing of a Controlled Substance
Drug Attorney in Houston, TX
The law governing manufacture of a controlled substance and possession
with intent to deliver a controlled substance are found within the same
statute. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has held that you cannot
be charged with both manufacturing a controlled substance and then charged
with possession with intent to deliver the same controlled substance.
To allow the State of Texas to do so would punishing you twice for the
same offense, and that would violate your constitutional rights against
double jeopardy. If you have been charged with manufacturing a controlled
substance, it is important to hire an experienced and knowledgeable
Houston drug crime lawyer.
