Legal Definition: Possession for Sales, Health and Safety Code Sections 11351, 11351.5, and 11378
The crime is defined as the unlawful possession of a controlled substance, with the intent to sell. The prosecution must prove that the defendant knew the drugs were in his or her presence, and that the defendant intended to sell the unlawful controlled substance.
If the police do not obtain fingerprints from the wrapping or container the drugs are located in, the defense can contest to whom the drugs truly belonged and argue that the defendant is not responsible for the drug sales or transportation allegations. Further, constitutional violations committed by the police may lead to the entire case being thrown out of court.
The consequences for the conviction of drug crimes may be very serious. Possession for Sales Drug Offenses carry the possibility of jail or prison, because they are charged as Felony crimes. It is of significant importance that you retain the legal services of an experienced San Fernando Valley criminal defense attorney who understands how to successfully defend Possession for Sales allegations.
Frequently with the proper advocacy, our defense lawyers successfully argue that the drugs were merely possessed for personal use, such that the resolution of the case merits a drug-treatment program, not custody. The quantity, method of packaging, amount of monies seized, existence of pay/owe sheets are all factors the defense can use in arguing the drugs were not possessed for sale.
