The Nuances Of Possession With Intent Charges
Possession with intent to distribute is a serious offense that can have a profound impact on your future if you are convicted. This particular crime can be difficult to prosecute, as prosecutors must present evidence that the perpetrator actually intended to distribute the controlled substance rather than just possessing it. Certain circumstances – such as the presence of scales and plastic bags alongside illegal substances – may allow a jury to infer that the accused was intending to sell or distribute
If convicted of possession with intent to distribute, you could be facing a variety of penalties. The severity of your sentence will depend on the type of drug found, the amount of the substance and other circumstances.
Possible penalties include:
- Jail time
- Permanent criminal record
