Two New York brothers are facing a number of charges after police recently stopped their vehicle for running a red light. The men, ages 29 and 32, have been charged with drug possession and a number of other felonies after police searched their vehicle and found pills and marijuana on board. Police said they made the search after talking with the pair and finding their behavior suspicious.
The younger male was charged with two counts of possession of legend drug (level 6 felonies) and driving while intoxicated, which is a Class C misdemeanor. He was the driver. The other male was charged with two counts of possession of legend drug (level 6 felonies) and possession of marijuana, a class A misdemeanor.
The two accused each have the right to speak to an attorney about mounting the best defense possible. Drug possession carries with it a possible hefty prison sentence and the possibility of changing the lives of those found guilty. An attorney and his or her legal team will ensure all evidence was gathered and catalogued properly and ascertain whether it should or should not be admissible in court.
A New York attorney experienced in criminal law will assist his or her client to fight any possession charges and will try to lessen any likely sentences. During his or her defense, an attorney will make sure clients know their rights prior to making any statements to police. An attorney will not always get an acquittal for a client, but he or she will work towards obtaining the best possible outcome relevant to each individual case.
