Criminal defense: woman charged with alleged drug offense

A woman is facing serious charges after being accused of a repeat drug offense, according to local sources. Police in Plattsburgh City, New York, arrested the 24-year-old woman on Nov. 6 after what is believed to be a lengthy investigation into her activities. She is currently being held against $5,000 bail or $10,000 bond in advance of a Dec. 10 court date. It is unclear if she has retained criminal defense representation at this time.

According to police on the scene, a warrant was issued by a local city court justice for her arrest. Officers apprehended her on Nov. 6 and allegedly found her to be in possession of some 24 grams of what is believed to be cocaine. The details of her arrest were not included in this report.

The woman has been in trouble with the law before. She was jailed from May 2017 to May 2018 after previously being convicted of the charge of felony third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. This is the same charge that faces her today. She also stands accused of violating the terms of her parole, which could influence any sentencing against her in this new trial.

Of course, the outcome of previous criminal convictions cannot be used to imply guilt in this new court proceeding. However, New York prosecutors will work hard to prove that she is indeed guilty of possessing large amounts of cocaine. Her criminal defense team will also work hard to build a case in her defense, drawing from official police and court records pertaining to the investigation into her activities as well as her arrest.
