When you are facing drug possession with intent to distribute charges, several factors will come into play in building your defense. Possession can mean actual possession, where drugs are found on your body, or covert possession, where drugs may be found in an area that you have control over, such as a locker or an automobile.
Drug possession with intent to distribute is very different from simple drug possession. It usually involves larger quantities of illegal drugs than would be used for just personal use. It also usually requires some other evidence, such as a large sum of cash, baggies or a client list.
Your defense will likely focus on the quality of the police investigation and the validity of the charges. In their eagerness to make a drug arrest, police can wrongly charge suspects or mishandle evidence or violate your constitutional rights. If they do, you better believe we will catch it.
