Possession With Intent To Sell

Were You Charged with Possession with Intent to Sell?

In New Jersey and New York, being charged with possession of drugs with intent to sell is a serious criminal matter. If you are convicted of a felony involving the sale of drugs or the alleged intent to distribute, you may be sent to federal or state prison. In certain circumstances, such as those involving the intent to sell drugs near a school — even if you had no intention of actually selling anything, and you did not know there was a school nearby — there are mandatory sentencing guidelines that you must confront cautiously and strategically.

In many cases, such charges are based on the amount of drugs that were in a defendant's possession. In general, the greater the amount of a controlled substance in a person's possession, the more serious the charges.
