Possession with Intent to Distribute in Baltimore

Strategic Legal Counsel from Devoted Drug Crime Lawyers

The state of Maryland carries serious penalties for possession with intent to distribute charges. This is a serious charge that comes with long-lasting penalties if you are convicted. Because this possession offense is charged as a felony, a conviction carries the possibility of years in jail or prison, thousands in fines, and a criminal record that can permanently affect you.

Our Baltimore criminal defense attorneys can help defend you. Contact The Law Office of Mark G. Scheuerman, LLC at (410) 630-4274 today.

Possible Penalties

You face punishment based on the type of drug you were found in possession of and the number of prior offenses you have on your record.

For drugs that are considered less dangerous in the eyes of the law, such as marijuana, a conviction can mean the following:

  • Up to 5 years in prison
  • A mandatory minimum of 2 years in prison if it is your second or subsequent offense
  • Up to $15,000 in fines

For Schedule 1 or Schedule 2 drugs, such as heroin, cocaine, LSD, methamphetamines, MDMA, and certain highly addictive prescription drugs, you could face:

  • A prison sentence of up to 20 years
  • Up to $25,000 in fines

Defending the Charges Against You

To be charged with possession with intent to sell, the case against you must prove that you were in possession of the illegal drug and that you intended to sell or distribute the drug. Because the prosecution only needs to prove “intent,” you don’t actually have to have sold anything to be charged.

This is where having a solid defense strategy is vital. Our Baltimore criminal defense lawyers can develop a plan to protect your rights and your freedom.

Call our office today at (410) 630-4274 to schedule your free initial consultation to discuss the charges against you.

  • Great representation

    “Mark made a very stressful circumstance a piece of cake. He accurately assessed my situation in our initial consult and what he predicted is exactly what happened ... Case dismissed. He was thorough, patient, knowledge, sincere and honest. While sitting in court i observed the behavior and demeanor of the other lawyers with their clients... No interaction or personal attention. I will recommend Mark anyone he can help. Very pleased”

  • Professional, Compassionate and an Extremely Excellent Attorney!

    “I was arrested on a Friday night and I called Mark on Saturday morning. Mark met with me that afternoon. Throughout the MVA hearing and my trial, Mark was professional, caring and compassionate. I was facing multiple traffic violations and a 2nd DUI. Needless to say, I was scared and my future uncertain. Mark explained to me what I had to do to prepare and how he would proceed with my case. Mark always made me feel like we were on this journey together. I never felt alone. At the MVA hearing, Mark saved my license and at my trial, Mark saved my life! Mark's representation of my case was so well presented the judge reduced my charge to a PPJ with no points on my driving record. I am still in amazement what Mark was able to accomplish. Mark truly cares about his clients. He is not only an excellent attorney but a wonderful caring person. I highly recommend Mark and will utilize his law firm again should the need ever arise.”
