Drug Possession With Intent to Distribute
Boston Drug Crimes Defense Attorneys
In Massachusetts, possession of most drugs with intent to distribute is a felony that could come with expensive fines and a lengthy incarceration, depending on the drug involved and any past criminal history. The prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you knowingly or intentionally possessed a controlled substance and that you did so with intent to distribute that substance. There is no need to prove that you intended to sell the drugs.
