Actor Adam Pally busted for drugs in New York

Even though marijuana is being legalized in many places, North Carolina readers should be aware that the drug can still get people into legal hot water. For example, actor Adam Pally was arrested in New York City on March 28 after he was caught smoking marijuana on a city street.

Pally, who is known for roles on TV shows "Making History","The Mindy Project" and "Happy Endings", was reportedly smoking an e-cigarette filled with marijuana on West 48th Street when officers placed him under arrest. He was then searched, and officers found he was carrying a small amount of cocaine. He was charged with misdemeanor counts of possessing a controlled substance (with respect to the cocaine) and possession of marijuana.

Pally, 35, was issued a desk appearance ticket and released from custody. He has a court hearing scheduled in June. The actor has reportedly been preparing for the lead role in the film "Most Likely to Murder". He has also appeared in the films "Dirty Grandpa" and "Iron Man 3".

Individuals arrested for drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia or other drug charges often face jail time and fines. However, with the help of a criminal defense attorney, it may be possible to fight the charges and obtain a more favorable outcome. For example, police may have violated a defendant's rights by executing an unlawful search, which could lead to the case being dismissed. Even if the case against a defendant is solid, an attorney may be able to negotiate a plea bargain that substantially reduces charges and penalties in exchange for a guilty plea to a lesser offense.
