What is a Drug Possession For Sale Charge?
The possession of drugs with the intention to sell or distribute to others for financial gain is a crime with penalties significantly more serious than that for simple possession. Often drug sale arrests are made when law enforcement has set up a buy and sell situation between them and a drug distributor. Once the sale has been made the offender can be arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell. A prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the individual in possession of the illegal substance had intent to sell. Depending on where the sale took place as well as what type and quantity of drugs would be important factors in sentencing by a judge.
