Drug Charges Archives

Overdose led to drug charges against two New Yorkers


City police have arrested and charged a number of people with drug-related crimes this year. Drug offenses can be serious, so it is important for those accused of drug trafficking to take their charges seriously. A recent overdose involving fentanyl led police to charge two men with drug-related felonies.

What are the penalties for selling drugs in New York?


All across the country, the police arrest people for allegedly using, possessing, selling and manufacturing drugs. Each of these crimes is different and involves different penalties. Drug arrests may lead to drug charges and convictions. If you have been arrested or charged with a drug-related crime, you should be prepared for what lies ahead.

The right criminal defense approach might get charges dismissed


In New York, possession or distribution of an illegal substance is a crime and can result in years in prison and significant fines. If you have been arrested on drug charges for possession or sale of an illegal substance, you may be facing serious consequences that can affect the rest of your life. If you have a past criminal history, your punishment can be even more serious.

Police break up Staten Island prescription drug ring

The drug arrests included the two men alleged to be ringleaders and four others who were involved in the operation.

Former street hoops star, drug counselor, faces heroin charges

Arrest of alleged drug smugglers yields $4.1 million in cash

Seek legal guidance to defend against complex drug charges


Being charged with drug possession is serious. Not only do such charges come with serious penalties, but also the charges can be quite complex. A New Yorker needs to exert actual physical ownership over the drugs to be charged with a drug crime. For example, if the authorities find drugs in one's home or vehicle, one could be facing constructive drug possession charges, even if the drugs were not their own.

Zealous advocacy for those in New York facing drug charges


Some people in New York have experimented with drugs in the past, or know someone who has. Occasional recreational drug use might seem like no big deal to some, especially as more states across the nation legalize certain drugs, such as marijuana. Unfortunately, the possession, manufacturing and distribution of certain drugs is illegal in New York and could result in drug charges.

What is considered private in a search and seizure context?


Police in New City who engage in a search and seizure of drugs, whether it is through a routine traffic stop or at a person's home, still must abide by the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. This amendment protects against unreasonable searches and seizures. However, it is important to understand when a "search" during a police investigation occurs and whether the property seized was private.
