SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

High school students busted for drug-related offenses

As disappointing as it may be, it seems that a growing number of younger individuals are getting involved with drugs. In many cases, the first instance of this occurs while in high school.

Our New York readers may not spend much time staying current on news out of California, however, this story is well worth paying attention to. Male and female narcotics officers were able to go undercover as high school students for a full semester, thus arresting 22 students in Southern California who were charged with drug-related offenses.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, deputies showed up at the two campuses where the students went to school and served 25 arrest warrants. On the day in which deputies visited the school, three students were absent. This meant that only 22 people were arrested, two of which were adults. One was an 18-year-old female and the other was a 19-year-old male, both of whom attended Perris High School. The others attended Paloma Valley High School, and as a result of their age, they were booked at Juvenile Hall.

Police noted that most of the drugs being purchased were small amounts of marijuana. This is not the first time this has happened in the area, with more than 20 students arrested at high schools in Riverside County last year.

Drug crime is high in many parts of the country, and in this case, it is high school students who were targeted by the authorities. Because an arrest for a drug crime can have serious consequences for anyone, but especially for juveniles, the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney can prove invaluable.
