Rapper Chief Keef faces multiple drug charges

North Carolina residents may have heard the news about the rapper Chief Keef who faces drug possession charges. Police took him into custody on June 12 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He was in Sioux Falls on June 11 to perform at a show. While he was at the airport on June 12, law enforcement officials arrived and detained him around 9 a.m. after Transportation Security Administration workers allegedly found four blunts and two THC edibles in his luggage. According to the report, police booked him shortly before 9:30 a.m. on suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia, and possessing between two ounces and a half-pound of marijuana.

This marks the second time the rapper was taken into police custody during 2017. The first incident was in early April when, after he failed to show up for his arraignment relating to an incident involving drug possession and DUI charges in Miami, law enforcement officials issued an arrest warrant for him.

People who are facing drug charges can be penalized with hefty fines and a lengthy prison sentence if convicted. While such charges are grave, an experienced criminal defense attorney could work to get them lowered if evidence shows that law enforcement infringed on the defendant's rights at any time, such as not having probable cause to conduct the search that led to the seizure of the drugs.

If lowering the charges is not possible, an attorney could arrange a plea bargain with the prosecution. One possibility could be asking for an agreement that involves the defendant successfully completing a substance abuse treatment program in lieu of imprisonment.
