Search results in manufacturing of meth charges

State prosecutors are more likely to aggressively pursue certain types of crimes more so than others. Murder, rape and assault, for example, are likely to be treated much more seriously than petty theft crimes. The same holds true for drug crimes. Simple marijuana possession, for example, may be given a slap on the wrist when compared to high volume trafficking of a serious drug like heroin and methamphetamine. This means that those who are facing more serious charges need to make sure they are putting forth a more aggressive criminal defense.

Six New Yorkers may need to secure competent defense representation after being taken into custody on numerous drug charges. According to authorities, the arrests came after a search of two locations which allegedly contained products used for methamphetamine production. Amongst these products, according to reports, were specific methamphetamine-related oils and approximately three grams of completed methamphetamine. The police also claim that they found a number of stolen guns at the locations searched.

The six individuals are now facing a slew of criminal charges. These charges include manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance. Although these individuals have a legal right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty, far too often the deck is stacked against them from the get-go, which is why preliminary matters such as jury selection and pre-trial motions can be of critical importance.

Knowing exactly what needs to be done when confronting drug charges depends heavily on the facts at hand. Depending on the circumstances, evidence may be suppressed and witness credibility drawn into question. However, successfully handling of these matters often requires a strong legal mind, which is why many New Yorkers turn to qualified criminal defense attorneys for assistance.
