When unexpected issues arise that necessitate criminal defense

Most New Jersey readers would agree that life is a series of ever-changing events, some of which might occur more suddenly or unexpectedly than others. In certain situations, such as if police suspect someone of illegal drug activity, the need for criminal defense mat arise. That seems to be the case regarding a recent police investigation in Newark.

Investigators say it is not uncommon for drug dealers to stamp brand names into wax folds on packages of drugs. The officers involved in this particular investigation claim they were able to trace brand stamps found at overdose scenes, which, they also claim, led them to one specific location. They searched that location and claim to have found stamps with brand names on them that are connected with drug overdoses in at least six counties.

Three men were arrested at the location the officers searched. They are now facing numerous weapons and drug charges. The men range in age from 30 to 46, and are currently in jail awaiting an upcoming hearing. The New Jersey Attorney General spoke about the incident, noting that all the drugs supposedly discovered at the scene contained fentanyl, a synthetic drug known to be more powerful than morphine.

When someone is taken into police custody in New Jersey, he or she may feel overwhelmed by the circumstances. However, anyone accused of a crime is entitled to present a defense in court. It is always best to do so by seeking support from an experienced criminal defense attorney who will fight to protect the client's legal rights while seeking to achieve the best possible result.
