You could face charges for many different types of drug crimes in the Commonwealth. Prosecutors are tough with these crimes. They charge many as felony offenses. The penalties you may face with a drug crime conviction in Lowell will depend on the type of charge:
Possessing drugs with intent to sell is a more serious crime than simple possession, as it encourages drug use among others in the community. The prosecution may try to prove that you intended to sell drugs based on a large quantity in your possession, baggies or other distribution packaging, cutting agents, multiple cellphones, or large amounts of cash in your home.
Drug crime convictions can come with severe penalties, including jail time. If the alleged distribution of drugs occurs within 300 feet of a school or 100 feet of a park, the minimum mandatory jail sentence in Massachusetts is two years.
The power of your defense could be all the stands between you and a life-changing criminal conviction. Drug crimes are defended by: challenging the constitutionality of the search; arguing that the defendant was not properly identified as the seller; or arguing that the drugs seized from the defendant were for personal use rather than distribution.
