POSSESSION WITH THE INTENT TO SELL
Possession with the intent to sell is a more serious charge of drug possession, usually involving the possession of controlled substances along with other items, which indicate a defendant's intent to sell or distribute.
As drug distribution is considered a more serious offense than simple drug possession, possession with the intent to sell may result in enhanced charges and penalties if convicted.
Various factors may play an important role in a case involving possession with the intent to sell or distribute, including:
The presence of drug paraphernalia.
Any statements made regarding the drugs and intent to sell them.
The location of the drugs in relation to the defendant, paraphernalia and other items.
The presence of large amounts of cash, customer logs, pagers, or cell phones.
The quantity of drugs involved.
The manner in which the drugs were packaged, stored or presented.
