When faced with criminal accusations, many people who are without the benefit of legal training are unsure of their options. Often, they are left to make decisions that will likely impact the rest of their lives without fully understanding their circumstances and potential outcomes. Unfortunately, two people who are now facing felony drug charges in Missouri may be feeling overwhelmed by the situation they are facing.
The incident involves a 45-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman. According to reports, members of the Missouri State Highway Patrol were conducting an investigation in Dec. 2018. As part of that investigation, officers claim to have witnessed the pair as they attempted to deliver drugs to a confidential informant. Reports indicate that they were taken into custody before the delivery could occur. It is unclear what prompted the investigation.
