Illinois man facing multiple drug charges

According to news sources, a 35-year-old man is facing multiple charges after a search of his Aurora home. The search occurred on Sept. 13 at 4:20 p.m.

Law enforcement officers with the Aurora Police Department executed a search warrant on the man's home. They reportedly found $1,000 in cash, three marijuana plants, 217 grams of marijuana, 11 grams of cocaine and 30 Vicodin pills. Officers seized the drugs, cash and a pickup truck and placed the man in custody.

The man was placed into custody at the Kane County Jail, where he remains in lieu of $100,000 bail. He is facing multiple charges, including unlawfully possessing a controlled substance, unlawfully possessing marijuana with intent to sell and manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance. The Kane County Sheriff's Office reports that his next court date is scheduled for Oct. 27.

People who are facing drug charges may want to get help from experienced criminal defense attorneys as soon as possible. If people are convicted as they are charged, they may be sentenced to long terms of imprisonment and might incur substantial fines and other penalties. People who have drug convictions on their records may also have problems with finding jobs or homes long after their sentences have been completed. Attorneys who are experienced in defending against drug charges may be able to analyze the evidence against their clients and to find problems with the state's cases against them. They may then use the help of experts and conduct thorough investigations of what happened in order to build the strongest possible defense cases. Attorneys may secure pleas to lesser charges or to alternative sentences that avoid imprisonment. In some cases, they may be able to win dismissal of the charges.
