Penalties for Manufacturing Drugs in Fort Worth

As is true with many types of drug offenses, the seriousness of your charges will depend on your unique case.

Conversely, some factors may minimize your charge and penalties.

Let’s take a look at aggravating factors in Fort Worth drug manufacturing cases:

  • The quantity of drugs being manufactured (larger quantity equals greater punishment)
  • Prior arrests
  • Your age
  • Whether a minor was involved in the offense
  • Whether you were near a school or a place where children congregate

The following are some minimizing factors:

  • Lower quantity of drugs manufactured
  • A less serious type of drug (marijuana can have a slightly lower penalty)
  • Your age
  • Whether this is your first offense
