Kingman Possession for Sale Defense Attorney
What is Possession for Sale?
Law enforcement officers and prosecutors in Arizona do not look lightly upon drug crimes committed in the state, and convictions for such offenses carry some of the steepest penalties in the nation. Possession for sale (possession of drugs with intent to sell or distribute) is a felony and can include considerable incarceration if the accused is convicted.
Depending on the quantity of drugs found at the time of arrest, and the circumstances surrounding the case, this charge can be levied even if you only intended the drugs for personal use. The quantity that allows for a possession for sale charge is called the threshold amount, and this amount differs depending on the drug that is in your possession. Some threshold amounts for various drugs include:
- Crack Cocaine – 750 Milligrams
- Cocaine (powder) – 9 grams
- Methamphetamine – 9 grams
- Heroin – 1 gram
- LSD – 50 dosage units or ½ millimeter
If you have been charged with possession for sale, retain effective counsel right away, as you are facing serious charges and will want skilled legal representation in your case.
