Possession with Intent to Sell
The Baker Law Firm, LLC, in Phoenix, Arizona, our lawyers have handled thousands of drug cases. Some of the more complex cases have been those charging our client with drug possession with intent to sell. We have defended many clients who have been pursued aggressively by law enforcement; the prosecution most often relies on the belief that these defendants will testify against their suppliers and larger dealers.
Prosecutors often use charges of drug possession with intent to sell as leverage against other defendants.
Possession with intent to sell is often preceded by extensive investigation. Police and DEA officials look for evidence such as:
- Multiple baggies with small amounts of drugs such as cocaine, marijuana, and methamphetamine
- Ledgers and bank accounts
- Electronic devices such as cell phones with messages and or intercepted (wire) communications
- Paraphernalia such as scales, cocaine cutting agents such as powder, cooking facilities for crack, and any other tools used in handling large amount of a drug
