Charged with a Drug Crime? Protecting Your Rights Through a Personalized Approach

Possession with Intent to Sell or Deliver

Experienced Miami Drug Crime Attorneys

If you have been charged with drug possession, law enforcement may attempt to enhance the charges to intent to sell by looking for clues of such an offense, such as the presence of large amounts of cash, packaging materials, paraphernalia, etc. It is critical that you seek the help of an attorney early on in a case to help prevent your charges from elevating.

How is possession with intent to sell defined?

  • The individual possessed a controlled substance (either actual or constructive)
  • The individual intended to sell or transport the substance in exchange for money or something of value
  • The individual has knowledge of the substance
