Possession with Intent to Distribute in Baltimore

Strategic Legal Counsel from a Devoted Drug Crime Lawyer

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.

As a Baltimore criminal defense attorney, I 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. As a Baltimore criminal defense lawyer, I can develop a plan to protect your rights and your freedom.

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

Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • I felt very at ease with Mark representing me.

    “I am very pleased with the way in which Mark handled my case. I had a speeding ticket which was 29 miles over the speed limit. Mark was very prompt in returning my telephone call and explained what would happen once we got into court and also gave me very valuable information while at court and prior to going to court. I ended up receiving probation before judgment. My fine was reduced from $160 to $50 + $25.50 in court costs. I felt very at ease with Mark representing me and will definitely use him in the future. My family also wants his name and number for any future situations they may come across.”

    “I'm a business professional who felt like they had everything to lose. Minutes after meeting Mark, I knew he was the right attorney to help me through this trying time. Mark has a great reputation and good rapport with not only the judges and prosecutors but often the police officers as well. Based on the individual circumstances of my case, Mark laid out plan for me to complete prior to my court date. The end result could not have been more favorable and far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend hiring Mark Scheuerman.”
