Last week, a man in Madison County was arrested for allegedly having 10 pounds of marijuana and 125 doses of ecstasy in his possession. According to WJTV News Channel 12, Fred Carvin Jr. was charged with possession of marijuana and ecstasy with intent to distribute. He was released from jail on a $10,000 bond.
The arrest happened on I-55 near exit 125. Apparently, he was pulled over, and law enforcement officials claimed to have smelled marijuana in the vehicle, which Carvin denies. They searched the automobile and found a small bag of marijuana and then found 10 pounds in the trunk along with the ecstasy.
Due to the amount of Marijuana involved, if convicted Carvin could face very stiff sentencing, even if he’s a first time offender. If you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with possession, contact the skilled criminal defense team at Coxwell & Associates, PLLC today.
