Drug charges can change your life in an instant. You may go from living a normal life to finding yourself facing serious charges and being taken to the police station while under arrest.
One time you really do not want to get caught with drugs is if you are on parole for another crime. This happened recently in New York when a man from Hudson was arrested for felony drug charges.
According to the police, the man was arrested on Sept. 25 after the Hudson City Police Department and New York State Patrol Division executed a parole warrant. The 35-year-old man was at his residence at the time of the arrest. There, the officers allegedly discovered that the man was in possession of an ounce of cocaine, pills identified as ecstasy and marijuana.
Now, the man has been charged with two felonies, a class B felony for possession in the 3rd degree and a class C felony for possession in the 4th degree. He also faces charges for the criminal possession of marijuana, which is a misdemeanor.
It is important for you to consider this situation if you are also on parole or if you’ve been accused of drug charges. It is wise to discuss your situation directly with your attorney and to take steps to defend yourself. A violation of parole, or even a single drug charge, can make a huge impact on your life. Don’t take the allegations made against you lightly, especially if there is evidence that the authorities and prosecution can use against you in court.
