Situation involving overdose in Florida leads to drug charges

A man in Florida is currently lying comatose in a hospital after allegedly overdosing on drugs at a particular residence. Two other men who supposedly share that home together are now facing drug charges in connection with the incident. Police went to the home with the intent to search it after they received information regarding the other man's overdose.

Investigators say they found a 1-year-old child present in the home. The child's parents were reportedly staying with the two men on a temporary basis. Police say they believe the two men in question left the other man who overdosed lying unconscious for approximately eight hours.

Authorities also say officers who searched the home found drug paraphernalia and various chemicals they believe were going to be used to manufacture methamphetamine. They arrested the two men and expect additional charges to be filed against them. Regardless of what police think someone was going to do with a particular chemical or item, prosecutors would have to prove that evidence exists to substantiate such claims in order to convict a person of an illegal drug manufacturing crime.

In fact, in light of any drug charges filed, those arrested are always presumed innocent unless and until proved otherwise. In past similar situations in Florida, many defendants have successfully avoided conviction by relying on experienced and aggressive legal representation in court. By reaching out to an attorney as soon as possible after an arrest, a defendant may begin building a strong defense to overcome prosecutors' quests to secure convictions.
