Felony drug charges against 2 in Minnesota

Three people were taken into custody in Minnesota on June 13 on drug-related charges. The Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force conducted a search warrant at a home in Le Sauk Township and detained a 21-year-old woman, a 33-year-old man, and a 55-year-old man.

In November 2018, according to authorities, a confidential informant for the task force agreed to buy heroin from the woman. Allegedly, the 33-year-old man made the reservation for the room where the deal took place. Court documents also allege that the informant made several additional plans to purchase drugs at a gas station and a store.

On June 14, the woman and the 33-year-old man were charged in court. The man is facing one and the woman is facing two second-degree felony charges for aiding and abetting the sale of heroin at least once in 90 days. The man is also facing third-degree felony charges for aiding and abetting a narcotics sale. The 55-year-old man was not charged along with the other two.

There could be serious legal implications for people who are facing drug charges, including a significant amount of jail time. People who have been charged with having committed drug crimes may want to talk to an attorney about how to proceed. An attorney may investigate whether the investigation was conducted properly. For example, if law enforcement in this case had not had a search warrant, any evidence discovered could be dismissed. For some people, a plea bargain may be the best option. This usually involves pleading guilty to lesser charges instead of going to trial and receiving a lighter sentence. People who go to trial may pursue a number of different defenses depending on the circumstances. An attorney might attempt to discredit the testimony of an informant or eyewitnesses or call the interpretation of some of the evidence into question.
