Florida woman charged for drug-related offenses

Being taken into custody is a nerve-wracking experience. Anyone facing this type of situation may suddenly feel a rush of adrenaline, and their minds may start reeling as they try to determine how to handle the situation. Of course, many people facing charges for drug\-related offenses may not even know where to start.

One woman in Florida may be hoping to get her case off on the right foot after recently being taken into custody. Reports stated that the woman and a second woman had gone into a convenience store bathroom and stayed for over an hour. An employee apparently become suspicious and called police to investigate. The women had exited the restroom but were still in the store when authorities arrived.

An officer spoke with the 22-year-old woman, and she allegedly stated that she had drugs on her person. Authorities searched the woman and purportedly found marijuana, methamphetamine, oxycodone pills, heroin, Xanax bars, cocaine and ecstasy pills. As a result, the woman was charged with drug trafficking and drug possession allegations. It was unclear whether the other woman associated with the situation will face charges.

Charges for drug-related offenses, especially felonies, can leave anyone feeling trapped. However, individuals do not have to accept that they will face severe punishment. Parties must first be convicted of the allegations, and accused individuals have the right to defend against the charges in hopes of avoiding such outcomes. If Florida residents have been charged with possession or other drug crimes, they may wish to find out what type of defense strategies may work in their favors.
