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 Scheuerman Law, 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.

  • Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer.

    “Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer. He represented me two days in a row, and within a week of being hired. Both court dates had nothing short of fantastic outcomes. He really cares about people, and it shows in the way he conducts himself in and out of the courtroom. He just loves what he does, which makes the process much more smooth. His prices were extremely fair as well, considering the caliber of work you're getting out of it.”

  • Excellent results - Highly recommended - would use again

    “Mark Scheuerman represented me for a traffic violation in Harford County. Facing 5 points, a large fine, plus living over 100 miles away from the incident court, I decided to hire an attorney to represent me. The cost of Mark's representation more than offset what I would have paid for increased auto insurance premiums for the years to come. Despite Harford being one of the toughest courts on traffic violations and a previous conviction on my record, Mark was able to get me probation before judgment (PBJ), which means zero points! My fine was also significantly reduced. Another huge plus was I didn't even need to attend my trial which prevented missing a full day off work and 200+ mile round trip. If I get another traffic violation in the Baltimore area I will definitely be calling again. Thanks.”

  • 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.”

  • "Quick on his feet"

    “Mark represented my son in traffic court and then at an MVA hearing. Prior to my sons name being called at traffic court, he asked to speak to the State Trooper outside the court room, and struck a deal right then and there. He was both professional and very knowledgeable about MVA laws. Both instances we had very good outcomes. Hopefully, this will be the last time we need him, however, I highly recommend Mark!!!!”
