Woman charged with possession of drugs

A 43-year-old Glassville woman was charged with possession of a controlled substance recently after she allegedly made several drug deals with an undercover police officer, according to authorities with the Flippin Police and the Marion County Sheriff's Office. The drug charges were made as the result of a joint investigation between the two agencies.

The woman has been charged with delivery of a controlled substance as well as possession, and since the transaction allegedly occurred near a park or school, the penalties could be enhanced. Bond was set in the amount of $10,000, which the woman posted.

Drug charges range from misdemeanors to felonies, depending on the amount of the drug found in a suspect's possession, the circumstances of the arrest and whether the suspect attempted to sell the drug or kept it for personal consumption. As seen in this case, penalties may be enhanced if the alleged drug transaction takes place near a spot where children are likely to be present.

Suspects who have been charged with drug crimes may benefit from the help of a criminal defense attorney, especially if the charges are based on a drug sweep or sting. There may be questions involved if the police set up a drug sting; the wrong actions on the part of law enforcement may furnish a defense based on entrapment.
A criminal defense lawyer examines the evidence of the case and may assist the suspect in deciding whether to fight the charges on grounds of entrapment or other viable defense or to work out a beneficial plea arrangement.
