The Law Offices of Germain & McCarthy, LLC criminal defense attorneys represent clients for all forms of drug-related crimes including possession with intent to sell. A person may be convicted of Drug Possession with Intent to Sell / Distribution charges if law enforcement finds unlawful drugs in their possession with other evidence suggesting that the drugs were not intended for personal use.
We believe in filing motions to suppress and motions to dismiss in appropriate cases to fight any allegation of possession with the intent to sell. Often these charges are reduced to less serious charges. The allegation of "intent to sell" is often equivalent to a finding that the person accused is a "drug dealer." The indirect consequences of such an accusation are much more serious.
The variance between being a drug possession conviction and being convicted of possession with intent for sale often depends on the quantity of the illegal drugs discovered during search or seizure.
