In its 1995 decision in State v. Denby, the Connecticut Supreme Court held that to convict a defendant on a charge of possession of narcotics with intent to sell within 1000 feet of a school in violation of the pre-Oct. 1992 version of Connecticut General Statutes §21a-278a(b), the state was required to prove both that the defendant possessed narcotics within the statutorily prohibited area with the intent to sell them and that he did so with the intent "to sell or dispense [them] ? at a specific location, which location happen[ed] to be within [the prohibited area]."
