Individuals face drug charges in New Jersey

| May 23, 2014 | Drug Charges |

In an instant, a person’s life can change drastically. This could be considered true for individuals who are taken into custody on drug charges. An individual could soon be looking for information on possible legal options that could be available to them and hoping to avoid a conviction. Luckily, such situations do not have to be faced without time to gather such information.

Three individuals in New Jersey could soon be looking for more knowledge on legal proceedings after they were taken into custody. According to reports, authorities halted an alleged drug transaction, and as a result, one male and one female were charged and taken into custody while a second male fled the scene. He was later apprehended and charged. Authorities apparently became alerted to the situation after an undercover operation.

Reports indicated that the two male individuals had charges of conspiracy to distribute heroin leveled against them, and the woman faced a charge of being under the influence. The two men were booked in jail as they did not post bail. The woman was released, presumably with pending obligations to the court.

The drug charges that these individuals face could come with heavy consequences if they are convicted. Therefore, they may wish to gain additional knowledge about their situations in order to better determine how they wish to handle their circumstance. Plea bargains could be an option if the conditions of the case allow for any. Information on such legal options in New Jersey could help the parties make decisions with which they feel most comfortable.
