There are many instances in life in which a person may feel thrust into a situation for which he or she feels unprepared. This feeling may easily affect people who have drug charges brought against them. Rather than letting that feeling overwhelm them, individuals accused of such crimes may want to determine how they can prepare for the proceedings ahead.
One man in Tennessee will certainly want to better understand his case and options after recently being taken into custody. Reports stated that the man had warrants against him for drug-related offenses, and while the man was at an undisclosed business, authorities saw him and detained him. The officers conducted a search and reportedly found methamphetamine and a syringe on his person.
After the body search, police also searched his vehicle and allegedly discovered methamphetamine, prescription pills, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. It was also noted that there was a pistol and ammunition in the vehicle. As a result, the man is currently facing multiple possession charges, including possession of a schedule II drug, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia. At the time of the report, the man was still in custody on a $279,000 bail.
The various drug charges and other allegations brought against the Tennessee man could have serious consequences if he is convicted. Because he undoubtedly wants to avoid negative outcomes, he may want to do his best to prepare for his upcoming criminal case. Information on his charges, possible defense options and other relevant areas of his situation may help him better understand what he will likely face.
