SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

Couple in New York face drug crime and other charges

Two people are in legal trouble following a traffic stop on Interstate 190 in Buffalo. New York State Police say they apprehended the duo after observing a traffic violation. The couple now face several charges for a drug crime, DUI and criminal weapons possession. It is not clear whether they have been released on bail at this time or if they remain in custody ahead of a trial date.

According to the report filed by state troopers, the 22-year-old woman and her 25-year-old male passenger were pulled over around 11:30 p.m. for an observed traffic violation. For reasons that were not articulated in the report, this led to a search of the car and a roadside sobriety test conducted on the driver. Police say the woman had a blood alcohol level of .08 percent, technically the legal threshold in New York state.

Police also say they found approximately two grams of what they believe to be marijuana, as well as a .22 caliber handgun that was loaded. Both individuals have been charged with second- and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon. The man faces a criminal possession of marijuana charge, and the woman was booked for DUI.

The litany of drug crime and other charges against this couple will be handled by a New York criminal court, wherein each of them will be represented by their own criminal defense attorney. The burden of proof rests on the state to prove the veracity of these charges beyond reasonable doubt. In the meantime, their defense counsel will take careful account of the events that led up to their arrest in the interest of building a compelling case in their defense.
