Swimming and tennis likely on backburner after drug charges filed

A couple in Illinois who reportedly planned to get married in a palatial home they recently purchased that features a tennis court and indoor pool may have to delay their plans. An incident occurred that resulted in drug charges against both of them. Although adjudication of the situation has only just begun, chances are they won't be celebrating a wedding anytime soon.

The 42-year-old man moved into the mansion with his 26-year-old girlfriend not long after they got engaged. The woman apparently shared her intent to get married and someday die in this illustrious home on Facebook. Since the home and 35 acres of land on which it sits costs so much money, a few of the couple's friends inquired as to whether they'd hit the lottery.

Everything took a turn for the worst after a police investigation that was ongoing for months and resulted in a particular man's arrest in May. The incident somehow prompted police to go to the couple's house, at which time they claimed to find piles of marijuana inside. They also reported seizure of at least $40,000 in cash and multiple firearms.

It's no secret that Illinois police (same as others) sometimes make mistakes. This is one of the reasons it's often crucial to secure legal representation as soon as possible when an arrest takes place and drug charges are filed. A savvy Illinois defense attorney knows what to look for to determine whether grounds exist to challenge any evidence proffered, especially if they believe a defendant's personal rights have been violated in some way.
