What To Do When Charged With Drug Distribution?
Any allegations linked to drugs can lead to harsh consequences if a conviction is entered. However, if authorities claim that you were in possession of drugs with intent to distribute, the stakes are significantly higher. The potential consequences in a drug distribution or manufacturing case are life-altering. It is critical for you to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.
Many individuals are shocked to learn that mere possession of 1 gram or more of a controlled substance can lead to a drug possession with intent to distribute charge. The law simply assumes that you intended to distribute or sell the drugs, based solely on the amount of controlled substance seized during an investigation.
Prosecutors may rely on “indicia of intent” such as money, scales or baggies to bring a possession with intent to distribute charge. Other law enforcement tactics may involve the use of so-called confidential reliable informant to set up a buy-bust operation to obtain evidence of a sale in a drug distribution case. Manufacturing cases often involve allegations involving meth or growing pot.
