A strong Attleboro drug trafficking defense will be required for a man suspected of trafficking both heroin and cocaine.
Attleboro drug trafficking attorneys have read that the suspect told arresting officers he was only selling the drugs in order to scrape together enough money to feed his family. In today’s struggling economy, it’s certainly believable. The family was receiving government assistance at the time of his arrest.
While this was the fact highlighted by the media, the man’s Attleboro criminal defense attorney has said he is likely to be taking a closer look at how officers obtained and carried out their search warrant.
Here’s what we know of the case, as reported by The Attleboro Sun Chronicle:
Local and state police raided the man’s Attleboro apartment, where he lived with his girlfriend and two small children. Inside, they allegedly found drugs, paraphernalia, an unlicensed handgun and more than $7,000 in cash. Unfortunately, his apartment was also located within 1,000 feet of a preschool, so he was additionally charged with drug violations in a school zone.
He has plead innocent to the charges, which include possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, trafficking of heroin and carrying a gun without a license.
