Defense for Possession with Intent Charges in FL

When law enforcement suspects that a person has committed the crime of possession with intent to sell/manufacture/deliver, they do not have to prove that the person sold any drugs. Rather, they must prove that the person “intended” to sell the drugs he/she had in his/her possession.

Some of the things officers will look at to determine what to charge include but are not limited to:

  • Amounts of drug in his/her possession
  • Amounts of cash in his/her possession
  • How the drugs are packaged (if the drugs are individually packaged, law enforcement will usually presume that the person is intending to sell narcotics)
  • Area of Town (are drug transactions common in the area)

Unfortunately, it is usually up to the discretion of the investigative officer based on his law enforcement experience as to whether to charge possession with intent to sell/manufacture/deliver or simple possession.
