Protecting Against Potentially Life-Changing Consequences

If you face charges with possession of drugs with intent to distribute, you need diligent defense to guard against steep consequences. A conviction for a drug distribution charge can have life-changing consequences. Possession of drugs with intent to distribute is a Class B felony and carries stiff penalties.

Since 1999, the attorneys at Simms & Associates have provided representation for individuals in Birmingham and across Alabama charged with drug offenses, including possession charges. We have a thorough understanding of drug possession and distribution laws. Our lawyers will investigate your individual case and determine the best course of action.

Possession With Intent To Distribute

Possession simply indicates that the controlled substance is in your dominion or control. Possession with intent to distribute suggests the government believes you intended to sell the drugs in your control.

In federal court, prosecutors must ultimately prove what your motive was if you are arrested with a controlled substance, which is difficult. However, under Alabama law, the prosecution merely needs to prove you possessed more than the statutorily specified quantity to trigger possession with intent to distribute charges.

For 20 years, our lawyers have litigated complex, serious trafficking, distribution and possession cases. With an extensive trial background, we know firsthand the tactics the prosecution will deploy to gain a conviction. We leverage this collective knowledge and insight to develop a strong defense plan designed to obtain a favorable resolution.
