From drug manufacturing to possession, when someone is facing drug charges they may feel very overwhelmed. After all, these charges can have a wide-reaching impact on people in Stamford, and across the state of Connecticut. On top of prison time and costly fines, being charged with a drug crime can also damage an individual's reputation, cause them to lose their job and create difficulties for their family members as well.
A woman from Norwalk was recently arrested over alleged drug-related offenses. Authorities say they also arrested the woman's boyfriend and one of his connections earlier in the month after a search reportedly uncovered heroin. Law enforcement officials accuse the woman of maintaining the drug-related activity during her boyfriend's imprisonment.
Officials say they found 49 grams of heroin and over 600 individual bags containing heroin when searching a condominium she was renting. Furthermore, authorities claim they came across agents used to cut drugs, a scale and several thousand bags that were empty during the search. Her bond has been set at $250,000 and the woman is scheduled to make an appearance in court soon.
Sometimes, people who are facing these charges may be unsure of what to do next, but handling the case correctly is critical. Unfortunately, many have been harshly punished over an incident that was blown out of proportion, while others have been sentenced to prison for an offense they didn't even commit. Those who are going through this may want to discuss the details pertaining to their set of circumstances with an experienced legal professional.
