Information Regarding Drug Distribution

Distribution of a controlled substance is a serious, felony drug crime that involves the unlawful, knowing or intentional manufacture, distribution, or dispensing, or possession (with intent to manufacture, distribute, or dispense) of a controlled substance. It can also include counterfeit substances intended to be passed off as controlled substances.

Distribution of controlled substances can be prosecuted at both the state and federal level. In Massachusetts, it is primarily governed by M.G.L. ch. 94C §§ 32 – 32F. On the federal side, the primary controlling statutes are 21 U.S.C. §§ 841, 860, & 959; however, there are numerous other provisions under both Massachusetts and federal law that affect drug distribution cases.

Because drug distribution is considered a very serious crime, it carries various sentencing terms, many of which include mandatory minimum state or federal prison sentences. To ensure you have an accomplished fighter in your corner, contact our team at Brad Bailey Law for defense. We can provide you with the hard-hitting defense strategies you need to aggressively challenge your charges in court. Call (617) 500-0252 or contact us online.

Proving a Drug Distribution Charge

In order to prove that a defendant is guilty of distribution of a controlled substance, the Commonwealth must prove three elements beyond a reasonable doubt:

  1. that the substance in question is a controlled substance;
  2. that a defendant distributed some amount of that substance to another person or persons; and
  3. that a defendant did so knowingly or intentionally.

If you are facing drug distribution charges, it is important to hire an attorney who is specialized and has extensive experience defending distribution of controlled substance charges. Brad Bailey is that attorney. Backed by decades of award-winning experience, he has successfully seen many charges reduced or dismissed under his representation. Call today to learn more.
