Man arrested on multiple drug crimes for selling out of his home

Allegations of drug crimes can take many forms in Arkansas and involve a variety of drugs. It might be so-called hard, "street" drugs, in which the person is involved in trafficking or sale. The same drugs can be found on a person who is a drug user. Or, the drugs in question could be legal provided there is a prescription for them. Being arrested on drug charges can have severe consequences on a person's life regardless of the drugs they are reputedly involved with. In a similar vein, the circumstances under which a person is arrested can vary. No matter the situation, having legal assistance for planning the defense is a key part of resolving it in the best way possible.

A man was arrested when law enforcement asserted that he was selling heroin. What is unusual about this case is that the man was reportedly selling it via the window of the basement in his home. The 37-year-old man was arrested after officers conducted a search of the property. They said they found drug paraphernalia, pills and a baggie containing heroin. The man was arrested on those charges. He was also charged with possession of methamphetamine.

Whether the person is charged with selling the drug or simply being a user of the drug, the amount he or she has in possession is the foundation to the charges that will be lodged. It depends on what schedule category the drug is in and other factors when assessing the potential penalties. People who have a significant amount of the drug can be faced with drug distribution charges. These are more serious than possessing and even selling a small amount. Other issues can come up to make the penalties worse such as selling near a school, a park or a hospital.

When a person is arrested for drug crimes, there are many effective strategies for defense. If, for example, the search was done in a person's residence and there were not the proper warrants or legal justification for making the search, the evidence could be called into question. It might be viable to consider a plea agreement to avoid the harshest penalties. Having a law firm that is experienced in helping clients accused of drug crimes is integral to formulating a strong defense.
