Drug Possession with Intent Attorneys
With most drug cases, there are many factors that can affect the charges being filed, and the severity of the penalties being sought by the District Attorney’s office. Drug possession charges can quickly be augmented to drug distribution or intent to sell charges depending on the evidence. Some of these include:
- Distribution materials like baggies or scales
- Sales activity/High foot traffic
- Large quantities of drugs
- Large amount of cash
With the augmented charges come harsher penalties. In some cases, there are even mandatory minimum prison sentences. In addition, other factors, such as the sale of drugs to minors or the use of a weapon can be used by the prosecution to increase the penalties even more.
