Possession With Intent To Deliver or Sell
Intent to deliver or sell drugs under Wisconsin law
Possession with intent to deliver is a charge that is based on two factors.
1) The weight of the drugs, and
2) What, if anything, is located with the drugs.
Weight Of Drugs
The greater the weight of the drugs, the more likely the police and the prosecution will believe the defendant intended to deliver or sell the drugs.
What, If Anything, Is Located With the Drugs
The second factor involves the police search. The police will search for paraphernalia and other items such as a scale that they believe would be used to package or sell the drugs. They also search for baggies that they believe would be used to sell the drugs, as well as cutting agents that could be used to divide up the drugs for sale.
Penalties - Classification
Any conviction for possession with intent is a felony, regardless of the weight or type of drug.
:: Straight Talk ::
Remember, the prosecution must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant had the intent to deliver the drugs.
Possession with intent is one of the most defensible of the drug crimes because it requires the prosecution to prove your intent - your mental state of mind and what you actually intended to do with the drugs.
If you tell the police what you intended to do with the drugs, even if it was only to consume them yourself or just look at them all day long, you will provide the police with a valuable piece of evidence that can be used against you to convict you of the crime of possession with intent.
Sometimes, a good defense can be built on the mere fact that you considered the drugs to be for personal use.
