Man accused of selling hashish-laced goods at music festival

On Aug. 11, Pennsylvania authorities reported that a 35-year-old man was accused of distributing drugs in the form of baked goods at a music festival. The authorities who intercepted the goods that included chocolate, Rice Krispies Treats and fudge, stated that they contained hashish.

The goods were reportedly sold at a music festival that was being held in Liberty Township in Tioga County. Agents reportedly began investigating the festival after there were rumors of drug use at the event the previous year. Undercover agents were reportedly sent to festival to buy the treats and ultimately seized 85 items that were thought to contain hashish after obtaining search warrants. They also reportedly seized marijuana, hashish and marijuana wax.

The man was ultimately taken into police custody where he was charged with multiple crimes, including unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a small amount of marijuana, among others. His bail was set at $10,000 and he was scheduled to attend a preliminary hearing on Aug. 18.

The potential consequences if a person is convicted for drug distribution in Pennsylvania can be severe, and those who are facing these types of charges may want to contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Legal counsel can examine the search that resulted in the seizure of the drugs in order to determine if the defendant's constitutional rights were violated. Successfully demonstrating that could result in that evidence being excluded at trial. Alternatively, the attorney could seek a plea agreement with the prosecutor that would involve a reduction in penalties in exchange for a guilty plea to a lesser offense.
