Drug Crimes in Ohio

By The Law Offices of Brian Jones, LLC  Dec. 23, 2013 2:54p

Last July, a routine traffic stop in Ohio led to a drug bust of more than 900 pounds of marijuana. An Ohio State trooper noticed a Subaru following too closely behind a recreational vehicle as both vehicles traveled down the highway. The trooper pulled the Subaru over and in doing so both smelled and saw marijuana in the vehicle. Because of that, the Subaru was searched and a large amount of cash was found. A further investigation revealed that the occupants of the Subaru and the recreational vehicle were traveling together. The RV was later located, stopped, and searched where 907 pounds of marijuana were discovered with a street value of approximately $4 million. The occupants of both vehicles were arrested and charged with possession and trafficking of marijuana, money laundering, and other offenses.

Drug crime charges are one of the most common type of criminal case prosecuted in Ohio criminal courts. These crimes can range from simple possession for one's own personal use to drug trafficking as in the case above. Often drug crimes are combined with other criminal charges, such as conspiracy, money laundering, and more. The penalties involved in drug crimes will depend on the type of drug involved, the quantity involved, what location the drugs were found in, and any criminal history on the part of the defendant. Drug crimes include the unauthorized use, sale, or distribution of prescription medicines as well as street drugs. Anyone accused of a drug crime needs to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney for best results.
