Man with history of drug charges arrested again in Cumming

| May 16, 2019 | Drug Charges |

For Cumming residents who have had issues with drugs in the past, whether that is related to selling, using or both, it can be difficult to avoid being arrested when law enforcement believes drug charges are warranted. Regardless of a person’s past, they deserve to have a strong legal defense when confronted with allegations of drug violations. Since penalties can significantly worsen with continued arrests and convictions, it becomes even more imperative to vigorously defend against the charges.

A 48-year-old man who reportedly has a history of drug charges was again arrested after fleeing a traffic stop. The incident began when undercover deputies for the Sheriff’s Office spotted a man who had previous arrests for drug dealing. The deputies stated they were previously aware that the man’s driver’s license had been suspended. When they stopped his vehicle in the parking lot of a department store and asked him about his identification, he tried to escape. Law enforcement surrounded and stopped him. When his vehicle was searched, the deputies allegedly found methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, 10 fake identifications with the man’s photo, but not his name, and a knife. He faces multiple charges.

When arrested on drug charges, a problem that many people face is that there are multiple allegations that run the gamut of violations. It is not just the drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, but perhaps possession of a weapon and fleeing law enforcement as well. If the person has committed a traffic violation or has false identification, it makes matters that much worse. The penalties can compound and result in a long jail sentence. For people who have had drug issues in the past, it can be difficult to rebuild their lives if they are dealing with multiple charges. Reducing the charges might be possible or, if the evidence is questionable, maybe there can be an acquittal.

Because these charges are serious and can have severe consequences if there is a conviction, it is important to craft a strong defense to drug charges and other criminal allegations.
