2 Pennsylvania students accused of drug possession

Two former basketball players from a Pennsylvania university were reportedly charged with drug crimes on July 14. The report stated that the players, ages 21 and 22, were found to have drugs in their apartment. They are not currently enrolled at the university.

Authorities were called to an apartment that was located on South Seventh Street on the evening of Jan. 23 after there was a report of a man holding a gun. When officers arrived, it was reported that they smelled marijuana coming from within the apartment. After obtaining a warrant, they reportedly found crack cocaine, marijuana and drug packaging supplies in the room of the 22-year-old player. In the 21-year-old's room, authorities reportedly recovered a small amount of marijuana and a grinder.

The 22-year-old was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. The 21-year-old was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Pennsylvania drug charges are very serious, and those who are accused may face considerable consequences. Depending on the severity of the charges, the person could be facing a jail sentence and fines and may even lose a job. A criminal defense attorney may determine if it can be argued that any recovered drugs did not belong to the defendant or if negotiations can be made to reduce the severity of the potential consequences. For example, if the person does not have any prior charges, there may be the alternative of entering a drug rehabilitation program in lieu of incarceration.
