Possession With Intent To Distribute
Drug laws can be some of the most confusing and unfair laws on the books. What one police officer or prosecutor considers a small amount of drugs that will result in a mere possession charge, someone else may consider a large amount of drugs that warrants a possession with intent to distribute charge. While the conduct is the same, the charge and the penalty for the defendant can be completely different.
Don’t Be A Victim Of The Law
It is easy for prosecutors to allege that a defendant intended to sell drugs to others simply due to the amount of drugs in the person’s possession. This type of thinking is a slippery slope which our firm sees as unfounded. Don’t let these false allegations ramp up the charge against you; work with an attorney committed to fighting for your rights as an individual.
Our firm is committed to fighting the arcane drug laws that allow this sort of charge to exist. This charge can mean exponentially higher jail time and fines depending upon the substance involved and any previous criminal history. The presumed sentences for these charges are outrageous, and depending on how the prosecution is feeling, your possession charge could be made more severe at any time by pinning the intent to distribute onto your case.
We are here to help you fight the system. Give us a call today: (801) 475-8800.
