The Manchester Super 8 Motel on Brown Avenue had a busy month. There was a series of drug-related arrests, all connected to at least three people who were on the premises.
One of the defendants, a 23-year-old woman, was arraigned for possession of heroin in the motel. She had been scheduled for trial and was out on bail for involvement in theft-related charges. Authorities have now asked to revoke her bail on those charges and keep her until she goes to trial. A hearing has been scheduled
Two other individuals were also charged and arraigned. A 27-year-old-woman was charged with two felonies on heroin charges that she had in her possession. She was unable to plea to the felony charges of possession of narcotics and possession with intent to sell. Bail was set at $5,000 for her. A 34-year-old homeless man is facing the same charge; his bond is $2,000.
All three defendants are scheduled for a probable cause hearing.
Drug charges are among the most common in the state of New Hampshire. They can tear families apart and cause suffering and humiliation, as well as a stain your record. If you have been charged with possession, use or intent to sell, there may be extenuating circumstances in your case that require the services of a person who knows the law. Not every sentence for drug offense is the same. It is in your best interest if you find yourself in a drug-related incident to seek legal assistance. An experienced New Hampshire criminal defense attorney can provide more information about your options.
