Sapulpa Drug Possession with Intent to Sell Defense Attorneys
Advocating for Your Freedom and Well-Being
Possession of drugs in Oklahoma is a serious enough crime, but when the
intent to sell is added, it becomes an entirely different case. Whereas
our country is slowly starting to view drug use as more of a health concern
than a legal one, possession charges can be easily dropped in lieu of
a drug rehabilitation program. In contrast, possession of drugs with the
intent to sell is viewed as a more destructive crime, as a guilty individual
would be deliberately contributing to that health concern.
At Saint & Watzke, PLLP, we assume innocence at all time and do our
best to lessen or completely drop these charges. We utilize all of our
efforts toward fighting the prosecution and winning your freedom.
Determining the Intent to Sell
In the United States, the prosecution has the burden of proof. This means
it is their job to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you or your loved
had the intent to sell. Because intent is a vague concept, this can be
harder to prove in a courtroom setting than most people think.
A large quantity of drugs is not enough to assume intent to sell. Adversely,
a drug dealer could have a small amount and is indeed with the intention
to sell. This forces the police and other investigators to search for
circumstantial evidence, such as:
- Text records
- Packing materials, like baggies
- Measuring devices
- Records of clients

of these items does not immediately prove the intention, it only suggests
it. Our legal team at Saint & Watzke, PLLP is committed to challenging
the prosecution to prove beyond doubt your intention, and we will be challenging
their evidence every step of the way. Serious charges such as these demand
serious legal defense, and we are just the team to provide it. Contact
