In a story straight out of the movies, six students were recently arrested following an undercover sting operation at two Pearland high schools.
According to CBS News, much like the plot from “21 Jump Street,” an undercover agent infiltrated Pearland High School and Glenda Dawson High School, posing as a student for several months. The agent allegedly discovered that there was a drug distribution scheme among students, and investigators reportedly seized cocaine, marijuana, alprazolam and tramadol, and charged the students with crimes.
The news outlet reported that charges filed against the students include the delivery of marijuana, delivery of a controlled substance and delivery of dangerous drugs. The Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force and the Pearland Police Department organized the undercover operation.
The names of the juvenile students charged in the operation were not released to the public.
I Was Charged with a Drug Crime. Should I Speak to an Attorney?
If you are ever charged in connection to a drug crime, you will want to make sure that you contact an experienced Dallas/Fort Worth area attorney. You should never speak to investigators unless your attorney is present, as any information you provide can later be used against you in court.
Our skilled criminal lawyers will uncompromisingly fight for your rights if you are charged with a drug crime.
In each criminal case our attorneys work, our goal is to get a dismissal or acquittal. We also negotiate plea bargains when they are in the best interest of a defendant.
In addition to speaking to an attorney about representation, it may be wise to discuss criminal record expunction if you are ever charged with a crime. This may help you with job and educational opportunities in the future, especially when your charges involve non-violent offenses.
