In Indiana and throughout the United States, people everywhere are gathering with family, co-workers and friends to celebrate the holiday season. Many such events include dining out, imbibing in a few alcoholic beverages or other forms of recreation and entertainment. For some, the good cheer of social occasions may be brought to a fast close if faced with serious problems such as drug charges or DUI.
There have been many people charged with drug crimes who were simply in the wrong places at the wrong times. Others have found themselves in grave predicaments through mistaken identities or because they had borrowed another person’s vehicle or clothing that later became subject to a police search where drugs were found. Nothing spells “bah humbug” during the holidays like having to appear at an arraignment hearing.
There are several things a person accused of drug-related crimes can do to minimize the negative impact of the situation. As soon as one is named in an investigation, a request can be made for defense assistance. Even if no charges have been filed, an attorney can begin building a strong defense should it later be needed in court.
