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.
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.
