Teacher facing drug charges could use strong criminal defense

A high school teacher in New Jersey was recently taken into custody for committing several drug crimes. The man facing drug charges is 24 years old. A strong criminal defense may help to mitigate the effects of such charges on the man in the short and long terms.

Police said they went to the man's apartment home in late November and completed an investigation. Afterward, he turned himself into authorities and was charged with possessing cocaine and intending to distribute it. His other charges include possessing marijuana and intending to distribute it as well.

The teacher used to be a quarterback at the high school where he has been teaching. According to the school, he has been an assistant football coach during the past couple of years. Police said they were still investigating the matter.

Facing drug charges can be intimidating, as a drug conviction can lead to time behind bars, make it difficult to claim many jobs and ruin reputations -- particularly for those who are high profile in their communities. For this reason, a strong criminal defense is paramount for anyone headed to trial for drug charges. An attorney in New Jersey will look for any weaknesses in the evidence that the prosecution plans to furnish. For instance, perhaps police made mistakes in their search and seizure procedures, which means their evidence will not be admissible at trial. The attorney's goal is to ensure that the client's rights and best interests are protected during all stages of the criminal proceedings.
