Miami Drug Possession Attorney
Possession with the Intent to Sell
For those who are caught or wrongfully accused of possessing drugs with
the intent to distribute them, hiring a Miami drug lawyer is an important
step in seeking to ensure your freedom. Charges of
possession are already high, so those found to be in possession with the intent to
distribute will have a difficult task ahead of them to prove their innocence
regardless of whether they had the drugs for profit or not. When you contact
our firm, Parks & Braxton, PA, we will fight to secure you an outcome
that protects you from years of jail time or brings about a significant
reduction in charges. Ultimately, we will never stop fighting for an outcome
that protects you from jail and expensive fines.
Under Florida statute, possessing with the intent to sell, deliver or manufacture
any controlled substances is illegal. Possession of drugs or paraphernalia
with intent the intent to sell can leave you with either misdemeanor or
felony charges. The intent to sell marijuana counts as a third-degree
felony typically receiving a sentence of up to five years and the intent
to sell cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, crystal meth and prescription drugs
is a second-degree felony facing up to 15 years as a sentence.
Those charged with intent to sell near a school or daycare will have a
mandatory prison sentence and increase in the degree of their felony.
The accompaniment of scales and baggies along with drugs can make it look
like your intention was to distribute the drugs. Those found with large
amounts of drugs may be suspected of distribution as well. Any sale or
distribution of drugs is highly illegal and while you may not have actually
sold any, if the prosecution can provide a convincing case that you had
the intention to, you can face years in prison and seriously high fines.
