Two Iowa City men accused of drug crimes and facing drug charges

Drug charges can have a significant present and future impact on the lives of individuals accused of drug crimes which is why accused individuals are afforded a number of important protections through the legal process. Two Iowa City men were recently arrested on drug charges. The men are facing drug possession charges and drug stamp violations and are accused of selling drugs out of their apartment. One of the men allegedly tried to flush drugs down the toilet as police officers entered the apartment and has been charged with obstruction.

The two men were arrested in the raid and police officers reported allegedly finding 328 grams of marijuana and smoking devices in the apartment. One of the men arrested is 19 years old and allegedly noted that he was a middle man for his roommate. The other man allegedly admitted the drugs were his during the search. Police and authorities are required to advise accused individuals of certain protections and rights and a failure to do so, in most circumstances, may result in the inability to use evidence obtained in violation of the accused individual's rights.

Drug charges can have a significant impact on individuals accused of committing drug crimes. Drug charges can impact an accused individual's housing, employment and educational opportunities such as student financial aid and the ability to finance an education. Because of the serious penalties and consequences associated with drug charges, including potential incarceration and fines, it is important that individuals accused of drug crimes are familiar with the criminal defense resources available to them when responding to accusations of drug offenses.

Failing to take drug charges seriously can have a lasting impact on the life of a young person or any individual accused of a drug offense. As a result, individuals who have been accused of a crime such as a drug crime should always know their rights and be aware of how to protect those rights.
