2 facing drug charges still have legal rights, defense options

When a person is taken into custody by law enforcement, it is easy to feel guilty. After all, authorities may intentionally make a person feel guilty in hopes that he or she will admit to wrongdoing or otherwise incriminate him or herself. However, anyone who faces criminal charges is presumed innocent until — and only if — proven guilty in a court of law, so if a person is facing drug charges, that individual has the right to defend against the allegations in hopes of protecting his or her innocence.  

Two individuals in North Carolina may be thoroughly exploring their legal options after recently being taken into custody. The details of the situation include the following: 

  • The suspects were reported as being a 33-year-old male and a 34-year-old female. 
  • Authorities allegedly had a warrant to conduct a search of a residence. 
  • Investigators purportedly discovered cocaine, marijuana, mushrooms, THC edibles, over $2,000 and a firearm. 
  • Multiple charges relating to drug trafficking, possession with intent, possession of drug paraphernalia and others were brought against the accused parties. 

The parties were both taken into custody and had bonds set for their release. The man’s bond was set at $120,000, and the woman’s was set at $110,000. At the time of the report, both individuals were still in custody. 

Dealing with multiple serious drug charges can often make anyone in North Carolina or elsewhere feel as if their future is bleak. However, criminal cases are unpredictable, even those that appear open and shut. Various details could work in the favor of anyone accused of drug-related crimes, which is why it is wise to look closely at the specifics of a case and determine what criminal defense avenues may be most fitting for the given circumstances.
