Michigan man faces drug possession charges

When an individual is accused of a drug crime, they could face harsh penalties. If convicted, someone may face fines, lose their driver's license and even face time in jail. One Michigan man would likely benefit from working with a criminal defense attorney after being charged with illegal possession.

The 44-year-old man was arrested on Mar. 20 after police were called for an apparent scrap metal theft. According to reports, the 44-year-old man fled the scene when police arrived. He was caught and allegedly found to be in possession of crack cocaine.

The man was charged with possession of crack cocaine, possession of a synthetic drug and resisting and obstructing police. The man, however, was released from police custody. Authorities say they will continue to investigate the case.

Media reports often imply guilt. However, anyone that has been charged with a crime remains innocent until proven guilty. An individual has the right to defend themselves against the charges and share their side of the story.

Despite what people may think, those who have been accused of a crime may feel frightened and overwhelmed. Because the legal system is so complicated, an individual who has been charged with a crime in Michigan and beyond would be wise to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney. An attorney can negotiate with prosecutors and vigorously defend an individual against the charges.

When someone faces serious criminal charges their whole life may be affected. However, with the right legal help, an individual may face reduced charges or see the charges completely dismissed.
