Drug charges can have varying degrees of severity. Because each case is different, it is important for individuals to understand the ways in which they could handle their specific cases. The defense options that may work for one person facing cocaine charges may not work for another individual facing similar charges.
Two men in Texas will certainly want to find the avenues that may work in their best interests after recently being taken into custody. Reports stated that an investigation into the men began earlier this month when police were alerted to their presence in a parking lot. One of the men had been asleep in the car, and when police arrived at the scene, they questioned two 21-year-old men. Officers allegedly saw drug paraphernalia in plain view inside the vehicle and conducted a search as a result, which led to the reported discovery of cocaine and other paraphernalia.
Police later obtained a search warrant for an apartment rented by one of the men. They purportedly found cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, weapons and cash. As a result, both men are currently facing felony charges relating to possession and delivery.
Drug charges related to cocaine and distribution can lead to severe consequences. Of course, in order for those consequences to apply, a conviction for the charges must take place in a court of law. Each man accused in this Texas case has the opportunity to create and present a criminal defense against the allegations. Information regarding their specific options may help them determine their best courses of option.
