Proving Intent to Sell
In order to convict a person of possession with intent to deliver, the prosecution must be able to prove 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
- Presence of money
- Paraphernalia or packaging
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 PWID charges.
Drug crimes range in degree of severity, but generally speaking, they follow a similar criminal process. View our latest video to learn more about how these cases typically operate.
