Illinois police arrest woman for drug possession

A woman is in police custody following an alleged drug sale. Following an interaction with a confidential informant, police in Illinois arrested her for possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. A judge set her bail at $25,000, which she has apparently yet to post.

Police allegedly worked alongside a confidential informant to arrange the drug sale with an individual suspected of engaging in illicit behavior. He or she arranged the Feb. 23, 2020 meeting with the 26-year-old woman, at which time police observed the interaction from a distance. Officers say that they observed the woman accept $200 in exchange for 1.5 grams of cocaine.

The woman then left in a vehicle driven by another person. Police pulled that vehicle over only a few blocks from where the meeting took place, at which time she told them that the driver had nothing to do with the incident. She was then arrested and taken into police custody, although this was apparently not the first interaction she had had with the authorities. According to the prosecutor, she was also arrested for resisting arrest in Jan. 2020, and that misdemeanor charge is still pending.

Facing multiple criminal charges is an overwhelming and stressful experience. Illinois defendants might be facing steep fines or even jail time, which can limit their future opportunities. Securing the most favorable outcome possible for possession charges is important, and defendants often find that conducting a thorough review of all criminal allegations and evidence is a good place to start. A criminal defense attorney will focus on protecting the accused's legal rights while fighting for the best possible resolution of the formal charges.
