Ohio Drug Sweep Nets 409 Arrests, $1.3 Million Seized

More than 400 people find themselves facing serious criminal charges after a statewide drug sweep spanning the last several weeks. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine recently told the media that the arrests resulted in 920 criminal charges. In addition to the seizure of $1.3 million in cash, drug task forces also seized:

  • Cocaine, 4,476 grams
  • Crack cocaine, 48.5 grams
  • Heroin, 3,921 grams
  • Marijuana, 288 pounds and 3,124 plants
  • Meth, 4,448 grams
  • Prescription drugs, 6,007 pills
  • Steroids, 45 vials

Prosecutors will aggressively pursue the charges. Unfortunately, that means many of the accused will be facing lengthy jail or prison sentences. Drug crimes, even ones involving small amounts of narcotics, often bring severe, life-changing consequences.

If you or someone you care about has recently been arrested for drug possession or trafficking in Butler or Warren counties, it is important to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney. In addition to direct consequences such as jail time or fines, drug convictions come with collateral consequences.

Collateral consequences for drug convictions may involve:

  • Loss of job or ability to secure good employment
  • Loss of child custody or visitation rights
  • Damage to reputation
  • Loss of rights to possess firearms
  • Loss of ability to do certain volunteer work, such as coaching a youth sports team

Do not underestimate the impact that drug charges can have upon your life and those that you love. Speak with a skilled drug crimes defense lawyer to discuss your options.
