Man arrested for allegedly selling methamphetamine

Since drugs are such a grand scale problem throughout Arkansas, law enforcement is vigilant in its attempts to tamp down on the issue by pursuing those accused of being involved in its sale. One drug that is becoming more prevalent is methamphetamine. As a Schedule II drug, it is categorized with cocaine, oxycodone and other drugs. For a person who is arrested for its sale, having a strong legal defense can make all the difference between an extended prison sentence and possibly an acquittal.

A man was placed under arrest amid allegations that he has been distributing methamphetamine. According to law enforcement, he has sold one pound of it each month. A search warrant was issued in late July. More than 2 ounces -- an estimated 60 grams -- of the drug was found at his residence and seized. There were also prescription pills, drug items and stolen guns. The man, 39, was arrested and charged with multiple offenses related to methamphetamine and its sale, along with the gun charges. He also faces other drug-related charges.

People arrested for drug crimes will face a variety of penalties depending on their involvement. If a person is a user of the drug and has a limited amount, the charges will be lighter than if the person is a suspected dealer or distributor. The location where the drug was being sold is also important as having it near a school is treated more seriously than in other locations. With jail time and fines regardless of the person's alleged involvement with drugs, it is crucial to have legal assistance with a defense.

A man who is accused of selling methamphetamine out of his home was arrested on numerous charges. As the case moves forward, he must remember that he is innocent until proven guilty and there are many ways to craft a strong defense against these charges. A law firm that has extensive experience in helping those accused of drug crimes can is imperative toward that defense.
