Man accussed of drug possession; woman also faces charges

One couple in California was recently arrested after police said they had been growing 100 pot plants in their backyard. When charges are filed against people thought to have been in possession of marijuana or other drugs, the accused individuals reserve the right to fight back legally. The criminal defense's responsibility is to make sure that the defendants' legal rights and personal best interests are protected during the whole criminal proceeding.

The couple's alleged marijuana plants were uncovered during a police probation search. While at the couple's house, police also reportedly found a hash oil lab and candies laced with pot in a refrigerator. The lab supposedly featured equipment such as butane tanks that were flammable.

Police said they additionally found two loaded weapons, and they say that all of these items were easy for a couple of children in the house to access. The man, said to be 29 years old, was arrested after being suspected of possessing firearms while committing a felony, running a hash oil lab, and cultivating, selling and possessing concentrated cannabis. He also reportedly violated his probation terms.

The woman, said to be 27 years old, was arrested after being suspected of endangering a child and engaging in the obstruction of a police officer. Both individuals were booked into a jail and were able to post bail. In order for the drug possession charges and other criminal charges to turn into convictions, prosecutors have to prove these charges beyond a reasonable doubt. The police officers' search of the couple's property also must have been executed in a legal manner as well. Both defendants reserve the right to challenge the accusations and government evidence in a California criminal courtroom.
