Several men facing serious drug charges in Illinois

Illinois authorities took various task forces into rural lands during a recent extensive drug investigation. The probe had been ongoing for more than a whole year and resulted in several men getting taken into police custody on drug charges. It appears the investigators involved came upon an elaborate marijuana-growing farm during their search and allegedly seized $170,000 in cash from that property and another location as well.

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 arrest doesn't necessarily mean a drug crime was committed

If an Illinois police officer puts you in handcuffs and charges you with a criminal offense, it doesn't necessarily mean you will be convicted.

Whether that happens, or a far less desirable outcome occurs, often depends on the type of defense presented in court.

Pulled over in a traffic stop, then arrested for drug possession?

Seeing the flash of red and blue lights in the rear view mirror while traveling along an Illinois highway is enough to make any driver have an anxiety attack. The first item of importance during a traffic stop is obviously to find a way to safely pull over and come to a stop on the side of the road. Sometimes, such incidents are without much consequence other than a police officer issuing some type of warning, then telling you you're free to go. Not all stops end this way, however, and if you wind up in handcuffs, facing drug charges, you may need aggressive defense assistance to rectify your situation.
