Accused facing drug charges entitled to criminal defense

While Alaska may be geographically removed from the lower 48 states of the country it does share some of the same problems. Among these is the ongoing struggle against illegal drugs. The police force in Alaska strives to maintain order and reduce the crime that can accompany the illegal drug trade. A couple in Anchorage were recently arrested and charged with drug related crimes. Anyone facing such charges is entitled to a criminal defense.

Following a lengthy investigation, the police executed a search warrant for the apartment of a couple who is affiliated with a local chapter of the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club. The search reportedly uncovered 120 grams of methamphetamine. In addition, there was equipment that could be used in distribution including digital scales and packaging materials. Officers also reported finding a large amount of cash.

The couple have since been sentenced to terms of imprisonment. The man was sentenced to 18 years in federal prison and a five-year period of supervised release to be added on at the end of his jail time. The woman was sentenced to eight years in prison with a four-year supervised release to follow. They also had to surrender the cash found in their apartment as restitution.

Being charged with drug crimes is understandably serious. Anyone accused of a crime in Alaska is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law. A knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can be of assistance in advising the client of his or her rights and helping to ensure that those rights are preserved throughout the criminal justice process.
