Criminal defense: 4 Alberta residents up on drug, weapons charges

Four Sylvan Lake residents are facing drug and weapons charges after recent search warrants executed on four homes and two vehicles in the municipality located about 150 kilometres north of Calgary. Two men, ages 38 and 55, and two women, ages 29 and 55, were arrested after a two-month investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  All four Alberta residents are likely now focused on their criminal defense.

While searching the homes, officers allegedly found oxycodone, cocaine and what they believe to be bydromorphone -- all packaged for sale. Police also say they seized more than $2,400 in cash and two shotguns, a loaded handgun along with about 2,000 rounds of ammunition. One of the firearms had been reported as being stolen from out of the Edmonton area.

Those facing drug and weapons charges typically need the help of a good legal team who will be able to provide an aggressive defense. Anyone accused of a crime has the right to discuss their options with a lawyer. An Alberta lawyer experienced in crimes and misdemeanors law will be able to guide those facing criminal charges through the court process.

In these types of cases, it is incumbent upon the Crown to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. A lawyer with experience in criminal cases will make assess whether search warrants were executed correctly and whether the prospective prosecution evidence was gathered and filed properly. A lawyer and his or her criminal defense team will work to obtain the best results possible for a client -- whether that means an outright acquittal or lessening of charges and/or sentence.
