Criminal defense: 3 charged with drug crimes

Three people have been arrested in Bath under suspicion of drug possession, according to local and state police. New York authorities apprehended all three individuals after a routine traffic stop on State Route 54 in Bath. Two of the three have been released and are expected back in court at a later time, while the third remains in a county jail. Each individual will be represented by his or her own criminal defense attorney at their respective hearings.

According to the report, the car was pulled over for an unspecified equipment violation that caught the attention of police. Once the car was pulled over, all three occupants were found to be in possession of what police believed to be crack cocaine. The driver also allegedly had drug paraphernalia and packaging materials, indicating a potential resale of the prohibited substance.

A 56-year-old woman and a 61-year-old woman were both charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. A 17-year-old male faces considerably heavier charges, including felony third-degree possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. It remains unclear whether he will be tried as an adult.

If they are found guilty, all three individuals could face criminal censure, including jail time. However, New York authorities will have to prove not only possession, but also in the case of the young accused man, intent to distribute. All three individuals will be represented by criminal defense attorneys who will carefully review the facts of the case in order to build strong defenses for their clients.
