Possession With Intent

The offence of being in possession of controlled drugs with intent to supply them to another is a serious offence, and if you are accused of this the Prosecution will need to show that:

  • You were in possession of a controlled substance
  • That the substances were controlled drugs and.
  • That you intended to supply some or all of that controlled substance to another.

The Courts take a very serious view of any allegation of supply, or intent to supply drugs to other people. The Courts will view this as being a key part of the social problems that drugs cause and if you are found guilty, or plead guilty, to an offence of supplying drugs, a prison sentence is almost inevitable.

The offence of being in possession of a controlled substance with intent to supply is an either-way offence, meaning it can be heard in either the Crown Court or the Magistrates Court. The maximum sentencing power for possessing a Class A controlled drug with intent to supply is life imprisonment. The maximum sentence for possessing either a Class B or C drug with intent to supply is 14 years. These cases are virtually always dealt with by the Crown Court, and therefore it is important that you have instructed a solicitor that you are sure is doing everything they can to represent your best interests.
