Being the subject of a drug-related investigation can be a stressful and daunting process. Those who face drug charges under similar circumstances could be uncertain how to proceed, potentially prompting a need to seek guidance moving forward. A 46-year-old man has recently been arrested and accused of multiple drug crimes following a recent investigation that is said to have taken place in New York.
According to authorities, the man had been the subject of an ongoing investigation and was taken into custody after being located around 2 p.m. on a recent Monday. They claim his arrest was in relation to outstanding charges, and that a search of his home was initiated shortly thereafter. The search allegedly uncovered the presence of numerous types and amounts of narcotics, including cocaine and LSD, along with an unspecified amount of cash.
The man is reportedly facing multiple drug charges in relation to the investigation, including 14 counts of possession of a controlled substance and eight counts of sale of a controlled substance. If convicted, he would face serious consequences that could have a substantial impact on his life. Those who face charges of this nature could choose to prepare for what comes next by focusing on their defense, but they may need assistance in doing so.
When facing numerous drug charges, an individual could find it beneficial to seek guidance in the early stages of the process. By speaking with a defense attorney, a client in New York could obtain guidance on how best to approach the situation. An attorney can examine the charges against a client, along with the evidence, and assist in forming a strong defense for use during court proceedings.
