The criminal justice system is complex. Often, those facing criminal charges are unsure of the process, causing them to lack confidence in their ability to make the decisions that will likely have a significant impact on the rest of their lives. For example, two women in Missouri may be facing this uncertainty, following their arrest on federal drug charges.
For many people in Missouri and across the country, an encounter with a law enforcement officer can be panic-inducing regardless of whether the person is engaged in illegal activity. Unfortunately, it may be instinctive for some people to flee when such a confrontation appears imminent. In fact, a man now faces drug charges after prosecutors claim he fled from a traffic stop.
A massive drug bust has resulted in three arrests, according to authorities in Callaway County. The Missouri State Highway Patrol has confirmed the arrest of three individuals who were allegedly found in a vehicle in possession of drugs, the street value of which is estimated at $217,000, including 6 pounds of what is believed to be methamphetamine. All three now face drug charges that could result in serious jail time if they are convicted.
In many areas, it is relatively easy for people to report any concerns about a child's welfare. While the intent behind this is likely to ensure that all children are adequately protected, the process could potentially be abused. Unfortunately, a request for a welfare check in Missouri has recently resulted in multiple drug charges -- among several others -- against a man and woman.
For many students in Missouri and across the country, college is a time of exploration and adventure. In fact, some students may ultimately experiment with alcohol and drugs. Unfortunately, police believe that a student recently died as a result of taking drugs; another student now faces drug charges as a result of the death.
A confrontation with a Missouri police officer can be nerve-wracking for many people. Often, the anxiety associated with such an encounter can even make someone who has committed no wrongdoing display symptoms that could be interpreted as guilt but are actually a product of nerves. Unfortunately, a man is now facing driving while intoxicated and drug charges after officers claimed he was involved in a car accident.
In many cases, the reason why a person faces criminal charges may seem fairly obvious. In others, however, it may not seem as clear. For example, a man in Missouri now faces drug charges after law enforcement officials served a search warrant on a business.
A car accident can happen at any moment in time and for a variety of different reasons. Unfortunately, the consequences can be tragic regardless of their cause. In fact, a recent crash in Missouri has led to drug charges, among others.
When a package is shipped between two states via the United States Postal Service, there is the potential that it will ultimately go through the hands of several postal workers. Throughout their career, postal workers likely encounter a number of different items -- both expected and unexpected. Unfortunately, officials in Missouri claim that a package that was allegedly suspicious has resulted in drug charges against two men.
A car accident can happen under the best of circumstances. Even drivers who are fully committed to safety may be unable to respond to an unexpected obstacle -- such as a pedestrian running across the interstate -- in time to avoid a collision. Unfortunately, a Missouri man now faces multiple criminal charges, including possession of drugs, after police say he was involved in a fatal crash.
