Defending Against a Drug Sales Charge
Drug sales allegations have the potential to be life-changing, particularly so since Dallas prosecutors take these charges very seriously and will aggressively work toward a conviction. With that in mind, it is critical that anyone facing drug sales charges in the Dallas area retain legal representation as early on in the legal process as they possibly can. A good criminal defense attorney can help you protect your rights throughout the legal process, all while building you a comprehensive legal strategy that challenges each and every aspect of the charges leveled against you.
When Drug Possession Charges May Be Elevated to Drug Sales Charges
In many cases, drug possession charges are elevated to drug sales charges when the quantity of the illicit substance present exceeds what would be considered average personal use. However, a number of factors may contribute to the elevation of drug possession charges to drug sales, including:
- The possession or presence of a gun or other weapon
- The possession or presence of a large sum of cash
- The method of storage of the drug
- The presence of scales, bags, or other distribution paraphernalia
