Possession with Intent to Sell

The possession of illegal drugs in the United States is a very serious crime. Strengthened drug enforcement efforts and a focus on prosecution have made it very clear that purchasing and possessing illegal drugs can be disastrous for an individual and may result in loss of freedom and destruction of the person's livelihood. If an individual is caught with a certain amount of an illegal substance, he or she may face even stronger charges like possession with intent to sell.

Persons arrested on drug charges may face incarceration, fines, probation, and difficulty gaining employment later on in life. If you or someone you love has been accused of possessing an illegal substance with intent to distribute, contact the Austin criminal defense attorney Ian Inglis at (512) 472-1950 today.

Understanding Intent to Sell

The court may determine that the individual had intent to sell if he or she has:

  • A specific amount of an illegal substance
  • Multiple baggies or containers of a certain substance
  • Financial ledgers detailing sale of substances
  • Bank accounts that show deposits made from the sale of drugs
  • Intercepted phone or email messages detailing the sale of illegal substances
  • Tools for distribution including scales, chemical agents for cutting drugs, facilities for making drugs and other tools of the trade

If law enforcement officials suspect the individual is responsible for the sale of illegal drugs as well as possession of an illegal substance, the charges against the person may be significantly increased. Possession charges are often very serious, but intent to sell can be even worse for the individual.
