Indictment results in multiple drug charges

People in Missouri might often wonder how a person ends up being charged with a particular type of crime. There are many factors that can go into these situations and the process is not the same for everyone. One thing that contributes to the process is whether or not an alleged crime is in the municipal, county, state or federal jurisdiction. Some drug crimes are under the jurisdiction of federal authorities and may include a review by a grand jury.

A grand jury is not a group that determines a defendant's guilt or innocence. Instead a federal grand jury reviews evidence to determine whether or not a defendant can or will be officially charged with a crime. If that happens, prosecution may follow. Nine people in Missouri have recently undergone a grand jury review and all nine were indicted on a series of charges related to drug activity.

As reported by KY3.com, the nine defendants are accused of participating in a drug ring for that lasted more than three-and-half years, beginning in December of 2015. There was a total of 19 counts reviewed by the grand jury. All of the defendants have been charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine across three counties in the state: Texas, Howell and Greene.

In addition to the conspiracy charge, some of the defendants have been charged with possession of a firearm to further a drug trafficking crime and with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute the drug. Another person is also facing a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
