Proving Intent to Sell
In order to convict a person of intent to sell, prosecution must be able to provide evidence that they possessed the desire, ability, and/or equipment to distribute an illegal substance. They must also demonstrate that the defendant possessed the drug in question.
Any of the following can be used to prove intent to sell:
- Expressed intention to sell
- Presence of weapons or money
- Paraphernalia or packaging used for distribution
- Other incriminating evidence
In spite of the evidence required for such a conviction, a capable attorney can often take a number of avenues to help you develop a favorable defense. In some cases, our legal team may be able to demonstrate that you were not in possession of a drug or related substances. In others, we can help you demonstrate that your rights were violated during the course of a search and seizure. Our firm can provide unwavering representation to combat aggressive charges.
