Prescription drug possession, other charges stem from search

Nov 13, 2019 | Drug Offenses

Getting in trouble with law enforcement can have a domino effect on a person’s life. A traffic stop could lead to a search that leads to charges for prescription drug possession that leads to court hearings and so on. Unfortunately, this type of event can take up a considerable amount of an accused person’s time, and there is always the chance of negative outcomes.

Luckily, anyone accused of a crime can defend against those allegations in court. One person in Texas may be hoping to find the right defense path after a recent arrest. Apparently, an officer had stopped a vehicle because the headlight was not working properly. During the stop, the driver’s behavior allegedly made the officer suspicious. As a result, another officer came to the scene, and a search was conducted.

The officers purportedly discovered cocaine, Xanax, hydrocodone, Ecstasy and marijuana inside the vehicle. They also allegedly found a handgun, cash and drug paraphernalia. As a result, the driver was taken into custody and is facing multiple felony drug charges and a charge for a felon in possession of a firearm. Identifying information for the driver was not given in the report.

This individual may worry about what the charges for prescription drug possession and others could mean for the future. Rather than going into the case without the right information, this Texas resident may want to gain information that applies to the case and possible defense options. He or she may feel more confident after becoming more knowledgeable about how the case will be handled.
