Justia Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Opinion Summaries

Texas v. Jarreau

By
Appellee was charged with delivery of a dangerous drug under Texas Health and Safety Code Section 483.042(a). The trial court granted his motion to quash the indictment. The State appealed, and the court of appeals affirmed the order quashing the indictment. The Court of Criminal Appeals granted the State Prosecuting Attorney’s petition for discretionary review to consider whether a charging instrument alleging delivery of a named dangerous drug must also specify whether it is a device or drug. Concluding that it need not, the Court remanded to the court of appeals for consideration of the State’s remaining points of error. View "Texas v. Jarreau" on Justia Law
