Drug charges likely for 2 in Illinois

A woman and her husband in Illinois recently recounted an unnerving situation that began when the two of them heard loud noises in the early hours of a recent Monday morning. The incident resulted in the arrests of two men. Authorities say they expect drug charges to be filed against both.

The woman said it was approximately 6:30 a.m. when she and her husband heard a loud commotion outside. They were apparently afraid to turn any lights on, and instead just tried to get a look at a nearby window. The woman said she grew alarmed when she saw at least 20 police officers outside.

It was later reported that the officers were part of a SWAT team sent to a particular residence to investigate possible drug crimes. A 40-year-old man and a 20-year-old were taken into police custody. Authorities say they believe the two men have committed crimes involving methamphetamine.

Neither man is said to have a criminal record, which would be something a judge may pay attention to in their upcoming scheduled court appearances. In such situations in the past, experienced defense attorneys have been able to develop strategies based on clean criminal history records to help their clients obtain positive outcomes in court. Every situation is different, and just because drug charges are filed does not necessarily mean convictions will be handed down. In Illinois and every state, a person accused of drug crimes has the right to fight all charges by retaining the help of a skilled and experienced defense attorney.
