Rapper faces felony drug charge in home state

Virginia residents who have followed the career of Rich Homie Quan may have heard about his recent legal troubles. The rapper was taken into custody while on his way to a performance in his home state of Georgia. Police first made contact with Quan and five other men at a checkpoint.

All six were taken into custody on suspicion of possessing drugs as well as suspicion of possessing a stolen gun. Quan was charged with a count of felony possession of drugs with intent to distribute, and reports indicate that he was in possession of marijuana when he was charged. He could be sentenced to up to 30 years in prison if convicted on the felony possession charge.

Those who are charged with crimes such as marijuana possession may face a range of possible penalties. In some cases, an individual may be sentenced to community service or a fine. However, it is also possible to spend time in jail or prison on a felony charge. More serious penalties may apply if a person is charged with intent to sell or distribute a controlled substance or if it is used or sold close to a school.

As a person may spend many years or decades in prison if convicted of a drug charge, it may be a good idea to hire legal counsel. An attorney may be able to create multiple defenses to the charge or charges a person may face. For instance, an attorney may challenge physical evidence introduced at trial or cast doubt upon witness testimony.
