Pennsylvania man faces federal drug charges

It is easy to make assumptions about people. If a person spends time with certain people or dresses a certain way, law enforcement officers and other officials may make certain assumptions about their behavior. Nevertheless, these assumptions are not sufficient to support criminal charges. One man in Pennsylvania may choose to fight the federal drug charges that he now faces as a result of an investigation conducted by a local government.

According to reports, one Pennsylvania county conducted an operation that it called "Operation War Ready." As part of this operation, officials claim, officers and others investigated two gangs that are reportedly violent. In May 2015, 47 people were arrested as part of that investigation.

One of the men arrested is a 35-year-old who officials believe may be the leader of one of the gangs. In Jan. 2016, representatives from the U.S. Attorney's Office announced that the man would be charged with federal gun and drug charges. If convicted of all the charges, he could spend the rest of his life in prison.

Those facing federal drug charges in Pennsylvania and across the country have several legal options available to them. Some choose to fight the charges in court, while others may plead guilty in exchange for a reduced charge and/or sentence. Defendants without legal experience may be uncertain what the best option for their individual situation may be. As a result, they seek the guidance of an attorney with criminal law experience to help ensure they have the information they need to make informed decisions regarding their case.
