Attorney for Possession with Intent to Sell in Orange County

THE FINE LINE BETWEEN POSSESSION AND POSSESSION WITH INTENT TO SELL in CA

A drug possession charge is a bad thing to face in the courtroom, but a drug charge with intent to sell is much worse. The charge a person is facing depends on how they had the drugs in their possession. If they had a large amount of drugs and that’s it, they could claim that they intended to use the drugs personally.

However, if a person has their drugs individually packaged and also has a scale with them, they are going to be charged with the intent to sell. This charge is much worse because it means that a person was planning on distributing the drugs in their neighborhood and negatively impacting other people’s lives.

No judge looks fondly upon someone who is getting people hooked on drugs and distributing them.

What Other Things Determine An Intent to Sell Charge?

In addition to having individually packaged drugs or a scale, there are other things that can determine intent to sell as well. For example, if someone has two or three cell phones on their person when they are arrested, this can also be grounds to get charged with intent to sell.

Most dealers carry several cell phones so they can determine who is calling them before they even reach into their pocket. When their dealer phone rings, they know that they have someone trying to reach them to buy drugs. Police may examine the cell phone in question and determine if it was a phone used for dealing by examining the length of each phone call and reading the text messages in the phone.

  • "It Was a Welcome and Uplifting Experience"
    I called to inquire about a case I was facing, this was one of the many attorneys I was speaking with during a free consult about my next steps. The future was looking more and more alarming as the implications of what I was facing were becoming clear. Halfway through explaining my situation, he interrupted me and asked some basic information, put me on hold for one second and came back telling me he had called around and found out that my case was not proceeding. Four other attorneys I had spoken to did not do this, and in fact had used scare tactics and worst case scenarios to try and hard sell me into signing a retainer. (unfortunately, the evening before I HAD with another attorney signed a retainer but that's for another review) Although I did not need to retain the services of this office, I believe that single action speaks worlds about the integrity, helpfulness, intelligence and capabilities of this office. In a world that is so difficult for the uninitiated, such as the legal system, it seems people are taking advantage of you at every turn. It was a welcome and uplifting experience to see the opposite of that with this law office and I am so grateful I was able to find them and know I could call them if anything were to ever happen to me later in life and know I could trust this team.

  • "Easy Communication and Genuine Care"
    I called Randy's office essentially in a panic looking for help for my infant daughter and I in a very difficult case. He and his staff immediately consulted with me, and ultimately resolved my case in the most direct and quickest manner possible. I could not be more grateful or complimentary of how Randy handled my case, as well as the easy communication and genuine care for my well-being. I could not recommend Randy more.

  • "Case Dismissed"
    Case dismissed! I got my girlfriend an attorney to help clear up a warrant she had as well as an outstanding case. The warrant was three years old and she skipped out on court. Randy got case dismissed and warrant is now gone. Only took him one week to accomplish this! Thanks for your help Randy Collins!

  • "Always Helped Me Understand"
    My son had gotten into some trouble, so thankfully we found Mr. Collins and his paralegal Chris. Every time I called the office, Chris or Mr. Collins guided me through every step and always helped me understand. The legal system is very complicated! But with their assistance and expertise, I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my son's case.

  • "Thank You Randy Collins"
    I utilized Mr. Collins services to fight a drug case, which could have ended my career. Mr. Collins was not only very knowledgeable regarding my rights, but also handled my case with the most professionalism that I have yet to experience. His staff was also very friendly and efficient when having any doubts or concerns. At the end my drug case was dropped, I was able to continue my career.

  • "We Need More Lawyers Like You"
    Randy before I call him a professional honest lawyer, he is a human being person and sample of pure lawful person, he won’t do business through your case, he help you before even be your lawyer, with no contract!!! Wow I have never seen a lawyer as honest as him. He left me speechless about his prediction for my case, without charging me. He tells what you need to know with no charge. He was like an angel when I needed him. I couldn’t afford even his advice, but he gave me free information when nobody did . I won’t forget your help. Dear Randy I just was watching my pictures and saw your business card, I don’t remember who introduced you to me. But just wanted to say thank you. We need more lawyers like you.
