POSS CS PG 1/1-B <1G - Galveston Criminal Defense Attorney

POSS CS PG 1/1-B <1G - Galveston Criminal Defense Attorney


What does POSS CS PG 1/1-B <1G mean? In Texas POSS CS PG 1/1-B <1G is the name of a criminal charge for possession of a controlled substance penalty group one. Penalty group one includes substances like cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin. Penalty Group 1-B penalty group includes Fentanyl.



So why does my criminal charge say 1-B when I didn't have fentanyl? Because when the jail system in Galveston reorganized its coding for criminal offenses they coded all penalty group 1 and 1B offenses the same. So even if you had regular crack cocaine it will still show up as POSS CS PG 1/1-B <1G.


The <1G part of the offense title means that the amount of the controlled substance was less than 1 gram. This makes the offense a state jail felony.


  1. Less than 1 gram: State jail felony; Punishable by 180 days to 2 years in a state jail facility, and a fine of up to $10,000.

  2. 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams: Third-degree felony; Punishable by 2 to 10 years in prison, and a fine of up to $10,000.

  3. 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams: Second-degree felony; Punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison, and a fine of up to $10,000.

  4. 200 grams or more but less than 400 grams: First-degree felony; Punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison, and a fine of up to $10,000.

  5. 400 grams or more: Enhanced first-degree felony; Punishable by 10 to 99 years or life in prison, and a fine of up to $100,000.
