The daily grind of life is not easy. Between work, family responsibilities, self-care and everything else a person is expected to do, it can be overwhelming. Add legal trouble to the list and the pressure can be staggering. Being accused of a drug crime, like intent to distribute, should immediately be a concern for the accused and their family. The potential consequences of such a charge is enough to make anyone sit up and pay attention.
Being accused of any crime is not something to take lightly. However, if a person is charged with intent to distribute any type of drug, it means that the prosecution believes they have enough evidence to prosecute for charges related to drug distribution. The charges and potential consequences for dealing drugs are generally more severe than those involving using drugs or having drugs in one’s possession.
The evidence that a person intended to distribute drugs can come from various alleged information. Separately bagged or stored illicit drugs can indicate possession to sell, as could the surveillance of a person or their cell phone. Whatever the alleged evidence against the accused, they have the right to build a criminal defense against such allegations. At Escobar, Michaels & Associates, we take criminal defense strategies to the next level.
Defending oneself against criminal allegations like drug charges is well within the accused’s constitutional rights. How they build this strategy could go in many different directions. However, there will be one strategy that will be the most beneficial or the most effective. Finding that strategy is key to achieving an optimal outcome.
