What Qualifies as Delivery of a Controlled Substance?

Simply being found guilty of possession doesn’t imply that you ever intended to do more that use it. While this is already a serious offense, it’s nowhere near as punishable as “intent to deliver.” There are some steps that need to be determined so that your defense can properly be crafted:

  • Knowledge of Possession
  • Classification of Controlled Substance
  • True Intent to Sell or Distribute

The first thing that needs to be established before you can be found guilty is whether or not you were aware of the possession. Too often there have been instances where individuals are found carrying substances when they weren’t aware that what they were transporting is in fact illegal. In these moments, it’s important that no admission be uttered, as admission can mean the difference between a guilty or not guilty charge.

If you are found knowledgeable of your possession, but the item isn’t classified as a controlled substance, then there may be another aspect to your defense. Arrests under the suspicion of drugs are fairly common, and these are always considered to be false-arrests. If you were carrying perfectly legal drugs and were apprehended for intent to deliver, then you have a strong stance to be acquitted.

Lastly, there needs to be solid evidence of what you actually intended to do with the narcotics. This doesn’t absolve you of possession charges, because you would be found actually carrying illegal substances, but it can prevent you from years in prison as a result of an additional charge. This is perhaps the easiest level to defend, but it’s dependent upon what has come to light; try your best to prevent saying or doing anything that would otherwise prove your intent, and it’s very possible that you have a leg to stand on.

Should any of the above apply to you, or you believe that your situation is entirely different; we highly advise calling Whitney S. Boan. She has spent her career defending people like you, and will be able to use that knowledge to facilitate your case. Don’t let your future be in jeopardy, act now before it’s too late.
