There are many instances in which it may be prudent to seek professional help with a situation. Being accused of a crime is often considered one such predicament after which gaining professional advice could potentially allow an individual to move forward in a more effective manner. If individuals who are facing drug charges or other allegations wish to gain such assistance, there are options available.

One man may be considering his legal options after recently being charged in Virginia. Reports stated that the 55-year-old man is a truck driver who owns a trucking company in another state. While traveling, he was stopped by police on Interstate 295. It was unclear what may have led to this specific stop, but it was noted that the man had reportedly been part of an investigation.

Authorities searched the man’s tractor-trailer and allegedly uncovered marijuana. According to reports, 131 pounds of the drug were found in the truck. That amount was suspected to be worth more than $327,000. As a result of the situation, the man was taken into custody, and he is currently facing a multiple charges. A charge for distributing more than 5 pounds of marijuana was named specifically.

As the man works to deal with the drug charges and other allegations brought against him, he may find that he would like more information on the specific predicament. In such an event, consulting with an experienced Virginia attorney may help him better understand how to potentially combat the charges brought against him. Such assistance may allow him to feel more comfortable as his case proceeds.
