Possession with Intent to Distribute
Queens Drug Possession Attorney
Drug crimes are considered very serious offenses that carry significant
punishments. One of the reasons these crimes carry such heavy penalties
rests on the perception that drugs have the potential to substantially
injure and even kill those who use them. Lawmakers and law enforcement
officers, both at the state and federal level perceive the sale or distribution
of drugs as a serious threat to the safety of the population. In order
to protect yourself from the heavy enforcement of
drug possession laws and the damaging effects a conviction can have on your life, it is absolutely
essential that you hire a New York City drug possession attorney.
Understanding Possession with Intent to Distribute Charges
Individuals are charged with possession with intent to distribute when
law enforcement officers find a large amount of drugs in his or her possession.
Even if the drugs found were never meant to be sold or distributed, the
quantity of the substance in the case could lead the prosecutor to determine
that the amount involved extends beyond the personal use of the drugs.
The quantity required to increase your charges from simple possession to
possession with intent to distribute varies depending on the drugs in
prescription drugs do not need to be found in large quantities to bring about a possession
for sale charge. No matter what the quantity or type of drugs found in
your possession, the penalties for this offense are very serious.
