Building Your Defense
When you are charged with drug possession with intent to sell, it is the responsibility of the prosecution to prove, beyond any reasonable doubt, that you possessed a controlled substance for sale. They must prove you:
- Had control over an unlawful substance
- Had knowledge that the drug was a controlled substance
- Possessed an amount of the unlawful substance that was large enough to sell
- Possessed the unlawful substance with the specific intent to sell it
When we create a strategy for your defense, we will seek to discount the prosecution’s case by showing illegal search and seizure tactics were used by the police, you did not have knowledge of the alleged possession, or you did not intend to sell the controlled substance you held in your possession.
