LAMAR ODOM FACES DRUG CRIME CHARGES IN NEVADA

Officials at the Nye County District Attorney’s office have confirmed that professional basketball player Lamar Odom could face further charges stemming from a weekend spent at a brothel, according to local sources. Nevada authorities are continuing their investigation into Odom’s dealings, but they say drug crime charges could be forthcoming. Odom is currently still in the hospital recovering from unknown afflictions.

According to police, Odom is suspected of having been in possession of and using cocaine during his weekend-long stay at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada. A warrant obtained on Oct. 13 allowed police to take a blood sample from the recovering athlete. This test will corroborate or deny the belief that he may have overdosed on cocaine during the fateful weekend.

At the moment, the district attorney’s office is still proceeding with its investigation. In a statement provided by the local sheriff’s office, police have said they are proceeding with a review of all the pertinent evidence in the case. This includes voice recordings from the original 911 call that led to Odom’s hospitalization in which the individual on the other end of the line said Odom had been using cocaine.

In order for drug crime charges to be filed, Nevada authorities will have to provide compelling evidence of Odom’s alleged actions at the brothel. This could be difficult to prove retroactively, however, particularly considering Odom’s condition at the moment. If the blood sample does not provide the evidence for which the authorities are looking, Odom may be left to recover from his ordeal in peace.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
