Police Arrest Multiple People Over Two Days on Drug Charges
There are many ways people in Illinois try to unwind and have a good time. Some find various clubs or organizations to participate in. Others go to sporting events, concerts and other forms of entertainment. Some may drink alcohol or use drugs to try and help them alter their reality. Taking many types of drugs is illegal, though. If people are caught possessing illicit drugs, they could be charged with a crime. This can lead to serious consequences. However, the consequences are even more serious for people who sell the drugs.
Recently the police arrested multiple people in multiple drug busts over a couple of days. In one bust, the police executed a search warrant on a house. Two people in the house were arrested, one for unlawful delivery of methamphetamines and the other for the alleged possession of methamphetamines. The day before, the police arrested a woman at a traffic stop for allegedly possessing a controlled substance. Later that day the police arrested three more individuals inside a home for alleged possession of methamphetamines.
At this point in time all these individuals have only been arrested and charged with these drug crimes though. If these people or anyone else who have been charged with drug crimes are convicted, they certainly could face serious consequences, but they must be convicted first. Not everyone who is charged with a crime is guilty, and there could be defenses that could help them avoid convictions.
There are many different illegal drugs that people in Illinois may allegedly use and sell. Many people are charged with drug crimes, but being charged does not mean that they will be convicted. There could be defenses available and prosecutors must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. It is important that people understand their rights and experienced attorneys could help people protect them.
