Ohio man faces drug-trafficking and possession charges

A 37-year-old man was recently arrested for attending a parade in the small, southeast Ohio town in which he resides. It is clearly unusual to be taken into custody for attending a parade, but circumstances in this case are out of the ordinary.

The Nelsonville man was reportedly under house arrest after an arrest early this year for drug trafficking and possession of marijuana and THC products. He apparently had permission to be at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting that day, but instead went to the parade.

Someone apparently saw him at the parade and notified police.

The man has pleaded not guilty to charges that include second-degree felony trafficking marijuana, second-degree felony manufacture of drugs, second-degree felony illegal cultivation of marijuana, third-degree felony having weapons while under disability, first-degree misdemeanor possession of drugs and fifth-degree felony conspiracy.

According to a news media article, a 32-year-old woman was arrested with him. She has reportedly pleaded guilty and entered a diversion program. The news account did not give any additional details about her plea agreement. 

A search conducted when the pair was arrested apparently resulted in police collecting about 10 pounds of marijuana, THC edibles and butane honey oil. Law enforcement officials said they also found evidence of the manufacturing and trafficking of butane honey oil.

Anyone facing similar accusations in Hamilton County can speak with a criminal defense attorney experienced in drug-trafficking and drug-possession defense. You can contact the Cincinnati law firm of Michael K. Allen & Associates for more information.
