Have You Been Charged With Intent to Sell in Florida?
Possession of marijuana, cocaine or meth is serious criminal charge in Florida. However, if the state can prove you intended to sell the drugs, the stakes are even higher. Possession of cocaine is a third-degree felony, punishable by up to five years of prison. Possession of cocaine with intent to sell is a second-degree felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
At The Umansky Law Firm, our lawyers are here to make sure a possession with intent to sell charge does not wreck your life.
What Is Possession with Intent to Sell?
If you are charged with intent to sell drugs such as cocaine, marijuana or methamphetamine, the prosecutor must prove that you possessed the drugs with the intent of selling them. Evidence may include:
- Possession of packaging materials such as baggies
- Possession of scales
- Possession of large quantities of drugs
- Possession of large quantities of cash
If you are charged with intent to sell drugs, it's important to hire an experienced attorney that understands the Florida drug statutes and who can challenge the state's evidence. The key issue is whether or not the state can prove you intended to sell the drugs. For example, just because you possessed a scale or other drug paraphernalia, doesn't mean that you intended to sell drugs. You may have simply wanted to ensure that you received all the drugs you were paying for. It is easy for a cop to judge you as a dealer when all you may have been doing is possessing for personal use.
