Man charged after police discover 131 marijuana plants

One South Carolina man was taken into police custody and charged on July 16 after 131 marijuana plants were seized in Rock Hill. According to the report, the plants were first discovered on July 15 when a hunter contacted York County Sheriff's Deputies about marijuana plants.

The plants were found on Cel-River Road at around 7 p.m. On July 15, 108 plants were seized while the remaining plants were collected the following day after the State Law Enforcement Division, York County Sheriff's Office and the York County Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit flew over the area. The authorities reportedly served a search warrant at a home that was located along the road the same day, and officials say they found additional plants in the building. The man reportedly involved in the operation, aged 50, was charged with manufacturing marijuana and trafficking marijuana.

In South Carolina, those who allegedly have marijuana in their possession may face a number drug charges that could result in severe consequences if they are convicted. Depending upon the specific charges that they face, a person may face a prison sentence, mandated participation in rehabilitation programs and an extended probation period.

A criminal defense attorney could help a person facing such allegations develop a defense case. For example, the attorney might review police reports regarding the search of a defendant's property. If a search warrant was not obtained properly or if investigators infringed the defendant's rights during the inspection, the evidence gathered during the investigation may not be admissible in court. However, if the evidence against the accused person is strong, the attorney may be able to work out a plea deal that results in the prosecution dropping some of the charges in exchange for a guilty plea, which might reduce the severity of the penalties levied upon conviction.
