Texas laws on drug possession carry severe penalties, particularly when a criminal charge involves cocaine. An amount of less than one gram will lead to state felony charges. Punishments range from six months to two years and fines up to 10,000. Consequences become more severe if the drug was discovered near a school, playground, public park or any other drug-free zone.
Drug crime convictions for possession, sales and trafficking can also lead to driver’s license suspension, a ban on owning a firearm or disqualification in applying for a student loan. Once a sentence has been served, a permanent felony criminal record will follow you as you apply for jobs or seek out a place to live.
