Drug Possession With Intent to Sell or Distribute

Orlando Drug Arrest Attorneys

Possession of an illegal substance such as marijuana, cocaine or meth is serious criminal charge in Florida. However, if the state can prove you intended to sell the drugs, the stakes are even higher.

What Is Possession with Intent to Sell in Florida?

If you are charged with intent to sell drugs the prosecutor must prove that you possessed the drugs with the intent of selling them. Evidence may include:

  • Possession of packaging materials such as baggies
  • Possession of scales
  • Possession of large quantities of drugs
  • Possession of large quantities of cash

Possession with Intent to Sell Defense Strategies

The key issue is whether or not the state can prove you intended to sell the drugs. For example, just because you possessed a scale or other drug paraphernalia, doesn’t mean that you intended to sell drugs. You may have simply wanted to ensure that you received all the drugs you were paying for. It is easy for a cop to judge you as a dealer when all you may have been doing is possessing for personal use.

Our experience as former prosecutors allows us to give you an honest evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the state’s case so that you will know your options from the start.  We know how many cases are put together to prosecute someone for having drugs, so we also know how to organize a solid defense.
