When multiple people are taken into custody in relation to the same crime, it is important that each person remembers that he or she will have a separate case. Though someone’s initial instinct may be to protect the others also facing drug charges, it may not be the best course of action. Instead, individuals may want to explore the avenues that could help them reach the best possible outcomes for themselves.
Three individuals in Texas may be deciding how to handle their separate cases after recently being arrested. Reports indicated that police officers went to a home with a search warrant for drug-related activity. When the officers arrived at the residence, there were three adults and two juveniles in the home. Authorities searched the residence and allegedly found marijuana, suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
A 36-year-old man, a 38-year-old woman and a 40-year-old woman were all taken into custody. The man is currently facing charges for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and endangering a child. He also had a warrant for his arrest relating to manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance. The younger woman was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, and the older woman was charged with possession of a controlled substance and endangering a child.
Drug charges are not an easy matter to address. Criminal cases can be long and difficult, and each person accused in this Texas investigation will certainly want to approach his or her case in the best way possible. They may each find it useful to explore their available defense options before moving forward.
