Defendant enters into plea deal for drug charges

People in West Virginia who find themselves facing serious criminal charges may often feel as if they have few to no options for how to proceed with a defense in their case. Even when circumstances look bleak, however, it is important for defendants to remember that they do have rights and one of these rights is to a fair defense and appropriate process.

When it comes to criminal defense, the situation may not always be as straightforward as either being found guilty of all charges as originally assessed or not guilty. One option that may be a good avenue for some people is a plea deal. In these cases, defendants may end up pleading guilty to some charges but often find that they are then not prosecuted for other charges. A plea agreement may also result in a lesser charge being levied against them than what had previously been entered.

As reported by WVNews.com, a 34-year-old man from Cartersville has recently made this type of decision. He was arrested in September after a multi-month investigation. Charges against him included both drug and weapons offenses. He recently entered into a plea agreement with prosecutors. As part of this deal, he will not be prosecuted for a charge involving drug distribution linked to an injury or death.

Anyone in West Virginia who has been charged with serious drug crimes may want to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to learn how a plea agreement might benefit them and be a useful part of their defense strategy.
