Couple charged with trafficking in meth

The drug crisis is nothing new. Appalachia, like most of the rest of the country, has its share of problems with drug trafficking and drug use. A couple from Bell County in Kentucky were recently arrested and charged with drug trafficking. A quantity of meth was among the drugs reportedly found when the couple were arrested.

The arrest came after a joint investigation conducted by the Appalachia Narcotics division and the Bell County Sheriff's Office. The investigation was carried out over a period of several months. During this time several drug purchases were allegedly made between investigators and the suspects.

The two face first degree charges of trafficking in a controlled substance, methamphetamine, and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon. The two also face 2nd degree charges for trafficking in marijuana. The investigation and arrests were carried out as a result of numerous complaints reportedly filed by neighbors.

Anyone in Kentucky who is facing charges possession or trafficking of meth is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. A person facing drug charges may be scared and confused and unsure of one's rights under the law. The U.S. Constitution guarantees a person a right to a jury trial and a right to criminal defense. A person facing drug charges should seek out the advice of a criminal law attorney, who can ensure that a person fully understands one's rights under the law. An experienced attorney can advise the client as to all of the legal options available.
