Pennsylvania residents may notice the amount of drug charges that are published in the different media outlets. Although it can be easy to quickly judge a situation or circumstance based on just a few facts, the accused is entitled to their day in court to present their case. A recent arrest has left three men each facing drug charges.
The arrests took place in three separate locations from a related offense. Several agencies were involved in the arrests. They reportedly took place without incident. The men were charged in what was characterized as a 'sealed crack and powder cocaine distribution indictment.' The men age in rage from 19 to 58.
While the seriousness of these drug charges is undeniable, the men may have options as far as their sentence. Depending upon any previous charges they may have faced or any prior record they have for drugs other charges, a plea bargain or lesser sentence could be a possibility. Only a court system will be able to make that decision. Anyone interested in this case may continue to follow the available details that will continue to be published.
Any Pennsylvania resident facing drug charges may want to take a proactive approach. Having an understanding of the applicable laws can also prove beneficial when moving forward with any defense case necessary. In certain situations the person could be found not guilty. By having the appropriate knowledge and taking the correct steps, a person can be more hopeful a fair and positive outcome will be achieved.
