According to a New York Criminal Lawyer, a Chief Deputy District Attorney was arrested and accused of possession of rock cocaine in Las Vegas. Drug Possession in New York City or Long Island are serious crimes with huge penalties for the offender.

The 10-year veteran was working on a task force and handled celebrity drug scandals including busts of Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars. He could not be reached for comment regarding this matter. This would also be a very serious matter in Brooklyn, NY.

A District Attorney in the area revealed that in going over the defendant’s cases, he was relieved that there had been no wrongful prosecutions, explaining that everything checked out in the system and there should be no concern that the Deputy Chief had access to the drugs that were supposed to be evidence.

These officers will investigate all leads and tips that they receive. They have set up a text messaging hotline for tips to be called in anonymously. They will also going into the high schools and middle schools with social workers to talk to children about heroin. A Suffolk County Criminal Lawyer reports that officials are also trying to lobby for a new law to try to dissuade potential drug sales. They would like any vehicle used in a heroin sale to become property of the County.

The County is planning on offering free drug testing kits for parents and making guidebooks available to parents. These books will alert parents to the signs of heroin use and treatment options. They will be hosting “sober” events for recovering addicts. These events will be part of new support groups that will be formed for addicts who are looking for counseling.

Though these plans are in place, some will still be put under arrest because of heroin. If that were to happen to you or a loved one, you will need an aggressive Suffolk County Criminal Lawyer.
