The worst part is that people who simply made an error in judgment or who were not even involved often face serious drug charges. At the Law Office of Niels C. Eriksen Jr., LLC, in Philadelphia, we fight hard to protect your rights and your freedom.
Knowing What to Expect
Like other drug charges, possession with intent to deliver often involves specific facts that must be resolved in court. There are often motives for witnesses to misrepresent the truth in order to get better results for themselves. Further, police set up controlled buys to trap people in a drug sale.
