Possession for Sale of Drugs/Narcotics
Accused of possession for sale of drugs? You deserve a skilled drug defense attorney.
Most of the time, charges for possession for sale of drugs/narcotics are based on what prosecutors call “indicia of sale,” or factors that suggest you are involved in drug sales. This means you may be charged with possession for sale simply for having a large quantity of a drug or lots of cash on hand, even if there is no other reason to believe you are selling drugs.
If police and prosecutors suspect you of possessing drugs for sale as opposed to for personal use, you may be subject to aggressive investigation and prosecution. If convicted, you could spend up to 4 years in jail and have to pay up to $20,000 in fines.
Obviously, you will want to fight back against allegations of possession for sale of drugs/narcotics as quickly and vigorously as possible. To do this, you can’t rely on just any defense attorney. You need a drug crime defense attorney who knows California and federal drug law backwards and forwards and has specific experience in cases involving possession for sale. In other words, you need the aggressive attorneys at Perlmutter & Pourshalimi.
Possible Defenses for Possession for Sale of Drugs/Narcotics
There are a variety of defense arguments that can be used to successfully disprove allegations of possession for sale of drugs or narcotics:
- You didn’t actually “possess” the drugs in question because the legal definition of possession was not met
- The drugs did not belong to you
- The drugs were for your own personal use
- You didn’t know the drugs were there
- The drugs were found during an illegal search
As your drug defense lawyer, we will work hard to create the best possible defense argument for you, given the specifics of your case. As former prosecutors ourselves, we know how prosecutors think and how to undermine their efforts to secure convictions.
