Prison counselor facing federal drug charges

A man who works as a counselor in a Pennsylvania prison has been accused of the possession and distribution of drugs. While the full details of the case have not yet been made public, the prison worker has been placed on administrative leave and will not be paid while the matter is resolved. Should he be convicted on these serious federal drug charges, he would lose his position with the prison after completing nearly 29 years of service.

Federal drug case leads to charges against doctor, administrator

Drug abuse is a significant problem in this country, and stemming the tide of drug-related deaths and crime is a top priority of both law enforcement and the courts. However, in the desire to save lives and slow drug trade, decisions are sometimes made that are questionable. Such may be the case in the example of two Pennsylvania medical professionals who stand accused of unlawfully distributing drugs. The federal drug case has made headlines across the nation and sparked debate among many.

What to do re legal challenges in light of federal drug charges

Being accused of a federal crime is obviously a very serious matter. Those facing federal drug charges in Pennsylvania may find themselves challenged in ways that are difficult to overcome without legal intervention.

A Pennsylvania sheriff's deputy is on a different side of the law after a recent drug bust. The 37-year-old man is accused of involvement in the transport and sale of marijuana, and he will face serious drug trafficking charges. Federal charges are also expected, as the drugs were transported across state lines. The man was arrested after police seized a significant volume of marijuana during a traffic stop.

Pennsylvania office manager, husband face federal drug charges

Perhaps rightly so, there appears to have been an emphasis placed on investigating and prosecuting alleged crimes involving illegal drugs, including illegally obtained prescription drugs.

One couple in Pennsylvania will likely be making important decisions regarding their criminal defense after federal drug charges were filed against them.  

Facing federal drug charges in Pennsylvania?

There are any number of reasons that Pennsylvania residents might find themselves in need of legal assistance. Whether one has been involved in an accident caused by another person, is facing workplace issues or has been charged with an alcohol or drug-related crime, it is good to know that there is legal help available in the area. While some circumstances are very minor, others, such as federal drug charges, are quite serious and can have long-lasting negative effects on a person's private and professional life.

Federal civil rights suit follows mishandled drug trafficking cas

When Pennsylvania readers hear news of a drug crimes case, it is virtually always from the perspective of law enforcement. In most cases, the side of the accused party does not come out in media reports, which are largely based on arrest records and brief public statements. This can lead to a very one-sided view of drug crime, and the impression that every individual charged with drug trafficking or possession at the state or federal level is guilty of those crimes. A recent news story shows just how flawed those assumptions can be.

Investigation leads to federal drug charges
