Possession with Intent
Michigan Drug Lawyer
Drug possession in itself may be a serious drug crime, particularly depending upon the type of drugs and the amount discovered on your person or property. At times, instead of facing simple drug possession charges a defendant will find that he is facing more serious criminal charges of possession with intent, which is essentially the possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia with the intent to sell. The presence of an extremely large amount of drugs or of particular items which may indicate the intent to distribute may cause the prosecuting attorney to pursue more serious charges against you.

Drug distribution is an immediate felony offense, and a defendant may face up to four years in state prison if convicted. For this reason, it is crucial that you do what you can to ensure your charges are not escalated simply due to the presence of baggies, measuring scales, large amounts of cash, pagers or PDAs or other items that law enforcement assumes indicate the intent to distribute or sell the drugs in your possession.
