What does Conspiracy to supply drugs mean?
Conspiracy to supply drugs is when two or more people agree together to sell or supply a controlled substance. It does not matter whether the sale or supply actually takes place. Charges can be laid if the intention to supply can be shown.
How do you prove drug trafficking?
It’s usually quite straightforward to prove drug possession. However intent to distribute is not so clear cut. This is why specialist legal advice is so important.
Evidence may take the form of such factors as:
- Possession of a quantity of drugs not consistent with personal use.
- Having drug paraphernalia such as scales.
- Large supplies of unexplained cash
- Being found in possession of drugs of a high level of purity.
There may also be other factors that the courts will take as evidence of intent to supply. A legal expert will know what factors can influence the outcome of a prosecution in your favour.
Can you be charged with supply of drugs based on text messages?
Yes you can be charged with supply of drugs based on the evidence in text messages. For example even if the police find only small amounts of drugs in your possession, text messages that indicate your involvement in the supply of larger quantities can be taken into account as evidence of conspiracy to supply.
