Possession with Intent to Sell

Fought By Our Gainesville Drug Possession Lawyers

The state of Florida harshly prosecutes violators of all drug-related offenses. In order for prosecutors to convict you of possession with intent to sell drugs, they need to prove several elements.

They need to prove that:

  • You possessed a certain substance with the intention of delivering, manufacturing, or selling it
  • The substance in question was a controlled substance as defined by Florida law
  • You knew of the controlled substance

If convicted of this crime, you could face mandatory probation, exorbitant fines, and extensive jail or prison time. At Dunham & Ingram, our criminal defense attorneys in Gainesville are highly knowledgeable about Florida’s drug laws. Backed by decades of legal experience, we have a comprehensive understanding of the procedures, paperwork, and laws related to possession with intent to sell.

About Possession with Intent to Sell in Florida

In most cases where a Floridian is charged with drug possession, there is no actual intent to deliver or sell the drugs that they were caught with. The “intent to sell” is frequently tacked onto possession charges so prosecutors can intimidate you and try to get a harsher plea. Prosecutors will look at the evidence of your case and use that to try and enhance a simple charge of possession to a charge of possession with intent to sell.

Any of the following can help prosecutors in trying to prove possession with intent to sell:

  • Amount and type of controlled substances discovered
  • Admissions by individuals associated with the accused, as well as the accused themselves
  • Presence of weapons
  • Presence of packaging consistent with drug sales and drugs, such as baggies
  • Presence of drug sale paraphernalia, such as mixing devices, testing kits, balances, rolling papers, and scales
  • Presence of large amount of money/cash around the premises where the controlled substances were discovered
