Ecstasy and Penalty Group 2 Charges

Ecstasy, or MDMA, is an illegal narcotic that can saddle a person with serious legal consequences if they are found guilty of manufacturing, selling, or possessing it with the intent to distribute. This charge is classified under the Texas Penal Code as a “Penalty Group 2,” and carries consequences that can drastically alter a person’s life.

At the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter, we believe that every person in Dallas who is facing ecstasy-related charges is entitled to a strong defense, particularly in light of the possible penalties. Fortunately, with the help of a skilled defense lawyer, many people are able to avoid conviction of more serious crimes.

Possible Penalties of an Ecstasy Penalty Group 2 Conviction

Drug crimes in Texas are pursued fairly harshly, and a person facing ecstasy manufacturing or distribution charges is likely facing hefty penalties if convicted. For instance, conviction for a Penalty Group 2 drug might result in the following:

  • Jail/prison time between 10-99 years
  • Fines up to $100,000

These penalties can range in severity depending on numerous factors, including a person’s past criminal history, the amount of ecstasy found in their possession, and more.
