Charged with possession with intent?
Having a qualified Solano County drug crime lawyer on your side is your best course of action if you have been charged with possession with intent to sell. At the Maas Law Offices we are aggressive and experienced, and have successfully defended people just like you who have been charged with this offense, or other misdemeanor and felony drug crimes. Our professional and aggressive approach has enabled us to successfully challenge misdemeanor and felony drug crime charges in court.
We may pursue a dismissal or a reduced charge, with lesser penalties, or options for alternatives to prison time, based upon the case facts. We should review your situation at once. The severity of the penalties imposed for possession with intent are based upon the amount and type of the drug alleged to have been in your possession. Any quantity above the threshold amount for that controlled substance will be considered to be an intention to sell the drugs. No action to sell the drug needs to have occurred.
If there are also items such as scales, baggies, or other measuring devices found, a possession with intent charge is even more dangerous, as these items will be evidence that is believed to support the charges against you. Penalties for possession with intent, a felony in California, are harsh. You could be facing 3-5 years in prison, or longer, based upon the type of drug and the quantity. Sentencing can be enhanced depending on the accused person's prior criminal record, and/or if the crime was committed on or near a school zone.
