Being charged with Possession with Intent to Deliver and/or Manufacture does not necessarily mean that the police believe that you were making or producing drugs.

This is a felony offense, which means that if you are found guilty you will be required to serve a mandatory one-year sentence in state prison, and this can change the course of the rest of your life. It is essential that you put yourself in the hands of a capable, competent attorney who will take your case very seriously and mount an aggressive defense on your behalf.
