In the event that a person faces felony charges, the seriousness of the situation may hit him or her hard. Drug trafficking, possession and other related allegations could result in substantial consequences if an individual is convicted of such crimes. Luckily, everyone has the right to defend against criminal accusations as their cases move through the necessary legal proceedings.
One Texas man may be reviewing his plausible defense routes after recently being charged. Reports stated that the man was stopped by a police officer for an undisclosed reason. After questioning the man, the officer apparently suspected that he was trafficking drugs. The deputy and his K-9 searched the vehicle and allegedly found liquid methamphetamine. It was reported that 20 pounds of the substance was discovered, which apparently equates to approximately $8 million.
The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody on charges of felony drug possession. He was reported as being 28 years old. His vehicle and the substance allegedly found in the vehicle were taken as evidence. It was not mentioned whether the accused man had obtained legal representation at the time of the report.
The man may understandably be feeling overwhelmed by his predicament. In order to feel more in control, he may wish to become more knowledgeable about his particular charges and upcoming criminal case. Other individuals who are facing drug trafficking or possession charges in Texas may also want to consider taking such action as well as potentially consulting with knowledgeable criminal defense attorneys regarding their possible legal options.
