Phoenix Possession With Intent Attorneys
What Is Possession with Intent?
It is commonly understood that possession of any type of illegal substance is a very serious drug crime. Such offenses are felonies, in most cases, and could result in up to 21 years in prison. However, possession can become even more complex depending on the offender's purpose for having the drug. There are three overall types of possession: basic possession, possession for sale, and possession with intent to distribute. If you are facing any type of Phoenix drug possession charge, you need to team up with the best drug lawyer in Phoenix. Our firm may be able to help you in your case.
Understanding Possession with Intent
When a person possesses a controlled substance with the intent of distributing said drug to other people, they could face charges of possession with intent, or PWI. The Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) defines drug distribution in §13-3401 under "dispense" as meaning to "distribute, leave with, give away, dispose of or deliver" an illegal drug. In order for a person to be convicted of possession with intent, it must be proven beyond reasonable doubt that the alleged offender meant to distribute the drug in the near future. This can be difficult to prove, especially if the accused has excellent defense.
Make sure that you do not suffer a wrongful conviction for your PWI charges by hiring a skilled Phoenix criminal lawyer for drug crimes from MayesTelles PLLC.
