Honey Brook is a borough in the northernmost portion of Chester County, Pennsylvania. With a population of almost 2,000, Honey Brook sees several types of crime. Honey Brook is policed primarily by the Honey Brook Police Department at 71 Pequea Ave. However, the Pennsylvania State Police also assist in policing the region and bring a fair number of criminal charges before Honey Brook District Justice Michael Cabry.
Honey Brook Driving Under The Influence (DUI) Attorney
One of the most frequent charges brought in Honey Brook District Court is DUI. If you are charged with or being investigated for DUI, make sure you hire an experienced DUI attorney who has a full grasp of the law. To be convicted of DUI, the government must prove that the accused was not only driving a motor vehicle on a road, but that he or she either had a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or higher or was incapable of safely driving a motor vehicle as a result of intoxication.
Honey Brook Drug Attorney
Also prevalent in Honey Brook District Court are charges alleging the illegal possession or delivery of narcotics. In general, the possession of an illegal narcotic in Pennsylvania is a misdemeanor charge punishable by up to five years in prison. Delivery or possession of narcotics with the intent to deliver or sell them is a felony punishable by as much as 20 years in state prison.
Felony Intent To Deliver Charges
Whether the government charges someone with felony intent to deliver narcotics as opposed to mere possession of narcotics depends upon several factors: First, if an individual is arrested with a large amount of a drug, it may be assumed that the person plans to sell the drugs. Another factor that might lead to this assumption is the number and types of containers or baggies that the drugs are found in. The higher the number of baggies, the more likely the individual charged might be dealing narcotics. Other factors include the number of cellphones an accused possesses (drug dealers typically possess more than one cellphone) and whether the accused has unused baggies (more typical with selling) used for holding drugs or baggies with drug residue in them (which indicates usage as opposed to intent to sell).
Charges may also be brought if the police observed an individual selling drugs or if a person is thought to be collaborating with someone who is selling drugs. Regardless of the specific facts involved in a case, it is imperative that you hire an attorney with a firm understanding of what the police must show to meet their high burden of felony intent to deliver charges.
