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.

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.
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.
