New Jersey men each accused of drug charge after traffic stop

Facing a drug charge can often feel overwhelming for New Jersey residents who find themselves accused of this type of wrongdoing. Thankfully for those individuals facing a drug charge, however, there are several options available. A recent arrest has left two men facing multiple charges and likely considering their various legal options.

The incident occurred when a 28-year-old man was stopped by police for failing to stop at a stop sign. He had a 29-year-old male passenger with him. A K-9 was used to search the vehicle in which the men had been traveling. Following the search, a large amount of heroin was reportedly located, as well as a "sizable amount" of cash. It was noted that over 100 packs of heroin were found.

Both men are now facing several charges including not only possession, but charges related to the intent to sell also. They were each held on a $5,000 bond prior to their first court appearance. The outcome of this case could potentially be different for each individual. The judge may take into consideration any prior charges and convictions in either man's history. It was unknown if either had previously been charged with a drug-related crime.

Any New Jersey resident who is facing a drug charge may be best served to understand their rights within the applicable state laws. When facing serious charges, it can be important for one to know their rights and also understand potential outcomes. In some situations, a person could be eligible for a lighter sentence while others may be able to work out a plea deal in order to potentially save themselves from facing jail time. Having an understanding of the appropriate laws and knowing the best action to take can play a big role when moving forward.
