A man receives drug charges after a search of his home

The home should be a place where a person can have freedom and much-needed privacy. Yet, when those in Illinois are suspected of possessing and using illegal drugs, it is not uncommon for law enforcement to invade the home and search the entire structure. However, a search warrant or consent must be obtained before law enforcement officers can legally enter a person's home. When police find evidence of illegal drug use, the home owner(s) can be hit with drug charges.

Recently, a man in Herrin was hit with drug-related charges after his home was searched. The man resided in the 700 block of North 6th Street. According to reports, the Herrin Police Department suspected drug activity to be occurring at the residence, so they searched the home along with the Southern Illinois Enforcement Group.

Allegedly, officers found about 50 grams of cocaine in the home. Reports said a digital scale and cash were also found. Reportedly, the home owner was placed under arrest and taken to the Williamson County Jail. He was charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to deliver. Investigations are ongoing.

It's common knowledge that any criminal charge is a very serious matter. Drug charges, however, can do irreparable damage to an individual's reputation and permanent record, regardless of whether or not he or she is convicted. Those in Illinois who are facing drug charges have options available to help them achieve the best possible outcome relative to their situations. By consulting an experienced criminal defense lawyer, individuals can obtain guidance and ensure that their personal rights are protected throughout this process.
