Colorado individuals may be looking into drug charges defense

Posted on April 23, 2014

The idea of being involved in illegal activity may have a mistaken sense of allure to some individuals. As a result, these parties can find themselves in difficult situations that they had no intention of being involved in. Unfortunately, if authorities believe that individuals have been involved in illegal activity involving drugs, the accused parties may find themselves exploring a drug charges defense.

Four individuals in Colorado may be looking into their options after a recent drug raid allegedly resulted in the discovery of several pounds of drugs. The situation reportedly began when one of the individuals was pulled over for a traffic stop last month. Authorities purportedly found multiple types of drugs and thousands of dollars in cash inside the vehicle.

Upon further investigation into the individual and his circumstances, authorities obtained a warrant to search a residence. It was again reported that different types of drugs, including cocaine, heroin and meth, were found on the premises as well as approximately $52,000 in cash. Three individuals were taken into custody after the search, and all four parties allegedly involved had charges of distribution of a controlled substance leveled against them.

The situation that these individuals are in is very serious. The Colorado drug charges could come with severe penalties if they are convicted. As a result, their defense teams may focus their drug charges defense on issues that are consistent with the individual circumstances of each person accused. To accomplish that, a careful review of the documents and testimony that prosecutors want to present in support of the charges may yield issues to be addressed in the form of legal challenges that are based upon the relevance and/or competence of the proposed evidence.
