When it comes to the Lincoln area, drug crimes are treated very seriously. The
drug charges that anyone who breaks these laws might face are heavy and can include
fines and jail time. Even with such penalties in place, there are still
some who distribute drugs and face the consequences later.
This is the case with one Lincoln man, who was recently indicted on drug
charges. The charges included three sales of cocaine near a playground
or school area. The penalties for his potential conviction include a $437
forfeiture sought by the government. There is also potential jail time
involved, with seven years being the lowest amount of time and life being
He was caught after allegedly selling 2.8 grams of crack cocaine to an
undercover officer over a period of time. Three of the undercover buys
occurred near a school and a park. He is facing five felony counts for
the same crime. Despite this, it was reported that he ran from cops and
discarded a 9mm Ruger handgun while fleeing. With this all in place, his
total convictions are six and include two counts of cocaine distribution
near a park or school, possession of a pistol to further drug trafficking,
and three counts of cocaine distribution.
These heavy potential consequences are enough to ruin almost anyone’s
life. If you or someone you know are in a similar situation or are struggling
against drug charges in any capacity, it might be best for you to consult
an attorney with drug crime related experience.
