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.

I will recommend Mark anyone he can help. Very pleased”

  • Phenomenal Lawyer that produces the best results for his clients. Worth every penny!

    “Mark Scheurman is one of the best lawyers to have in your corner in tough situations. He wants the best for his clients and produces great results. Under his representation, he always assured me that I was in good hands no matter how much I worried. He listened to me kept me well informed of my rights and options. Long story short I was given 13 citations by a cop after my car was crashed into the sidewalk even though I was not the driver. The citations alone were enough to revoke my license and included $1,300 worth of fines; furthermore, 2 of the citations carried a jail sentence up to 2 months each. I have never been in trouble before and never experienced any of this, but Mark handled everything. The day before court he called and told me he convinced the prosecutor to dismiss all13 citations because she did not have enough evidence to prove I was the driver and the only thing I had to was show up to court. Next thing I know, in court, the prosecutor dismissed every single citation as well as all the fines and I left with a clear record and not having to pay a penny. I'm so grateful for Mark because he really saved me from a bad situation that I was ready to plead guilty to even though I didn't do it because I was scared of the consequences if I didn't win. But he told me he would never let me plead guilty to something I didn't do and he handled it. He really is a blessing and I' m thankful for him and his representation. He knows the law and has a real passion for helping his clients. Thanks again Mark!!!!!! You are greatly appreciated.”
