Texas police recently responded to a scene where a young woman had been found unresponsive. The situation led to the arrest of a 21-year-old man. The man has apparently been in trouble with the law in the past, and a bond he had secured regarding a previous robbery case has now been revoked considering his recent arrest, which was made for a suspected drug crime.
Teenager’s mother called 911 after finding her daughter unresponsive
A woman dialed 911 after she returned home and found her 18-year-old daughter lying in bed, unresponsive. Thankfully, the woman knew how to perform CPR and she was able to resuscitate her daughter as emergency responders arrived at the scene. Doctors who treated the girl after she was transported to a hospital say that she is expected to make a full recovery.
They also stated that there was evidence of a drug overdose, which police also suspected after finding pills in the girl’s bedroom. The accused man is suspected of giving the drugs to the girl earlier that day. Police say that they believe the teenager’s overdose was accidental and that she likely didn’t know the pills contained Fentanyl, a synthetic drug that is more powerful than morphine.
A bond has been set for the man
While the court revoked a previous bond that was set in a robbery case involving the same man who has been arrested for a suspected drug crime, a new bond of $75,000 has been set in this case. The man is currently being held in jail. He will have an opportunity to present a defense; most defendants facing similar drug charges turn to an experienced criminal defense attorney soon after their arrest to discuss what options may be available to help mitigate their circumstances.
