Have you been accused of possession with intent? Don't resist arrest or say a word in your defense until you've hired a defense lawyer. Waiting to speak until you have the counsel of an attorney could prevent you from saying anything that could be used against you in court. Until then, you do not need to answer any questions or provide any statements, no matter how hard an officer may attempt to pressure you into doing so.
Call Martin & Wallentine today for a drug defense attorney with experience and aggression to fight your charges. We have successfully represented dozens of cases and could obtain satisfactory results for your case, as well.
Were You Recently Arrested in Kansas?
When it comes to drug crimes in Kansas, possession of a controlled substance is already a serious offense as it is. The consequences only worsen, however, when it is proven that the offender was in possession of the drug with the intent to distribute it to others.
Simple possession (K.S.A. § 21-5706) is a drug severity level 4 felony, whereas possession with intent (K.S.A. § 21-5705) is a drug severity level 3 felony. As such, it is punishable by a maximum of 23 months in prison according to the drug sentencing grid, as well as a fine as high as $300,000 as defined in K.S.A. 21-6611.
Kansas law requires that drug tax stamps be placed on illegal drugs. Failing to adhere to this can lead to an additional felony charge as well as civil fines and liens.
