Multiple arrests for alleged drug ring

New Jersey residents who are accused of serious drug crimes will always want to know and remember that they have the right to defend themselves against these charges. A defense may take many forms that may include proving one's innocence, entering into a plea bargain for a lesser charge and set of penalties or something else. No matter how it works, the judicial system does give everyone this opportunity in an effort to protect their rights.

There are today 11 people who will want to be focused on these rights as they have recently not just been arrested but indicted in a federal court for specific drug-related offenses. The arrests came after authorities at the Drug Enforcement Agency and the U. S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York worked together on what they call an organized drug ring. The defendants are all accused of moving heroin from the Bronx and Washington Heights areas into Ocean and Monmouth Counties in New Jersey.

The charges include conspiracy to distribute narcotics and more. Depending upon the exact charges each person faces, some defendants may be facing maximum prison sentences of 20 years, 40 years or even life. There is a reported effort to find one more person authorities believe was involved in the alleged ring.

After being arrested and charged with a federal drug crime, people in New Jersey might want to reach out to an experienced criminal defense attorney to understand how to best protect their rights and defend themselves.
