Former NFL player accused of violating the law

A former NFL player who at one time filled the position of cornerback at Georgia Tech was recently arrested and charged on allegations of drug possession. This is not the first time that the man has been accused of breaking the law, although prior arrests or convictions do not play a role in the criminal proceedings for his current charges. Aside from the drug trafficking charges, he has also been accused of illegally possessing a firearm.

In 2005, he was also forced to deal with drug trafficking charges and was sentenced to probation in 2006. Also in 2006, he was signed to an NFL contract with Tampa Bay, but was released after only four months. Later that same year he was again arrested for drug charges and served a prison sentence. With his career in the NFL over, he set to work on rising in the musical ranks as a rapper.

Regardless of his new career, he is currently behind bars. Authorities claim that they found approximately 11 pounds of marijuana in a recording studio that he was using at the time. However, some might questioned why he is on the hook for the possession and gun charges when there were a total of five people present when the marijuana was discovered.

Although one of his charges includes possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, any previous charge or conviction is no indication of guilt on any recent or current allegations. However, having faced allegations of violating the law in the past, he is likely already familiar with the possible consequences that a conviction can garner. The vast majority of Georgia defendants facing similar and other types of allegations can benefit from carrying out a careful review of their charges with the aid of their respective counsel. Doing so typically prepares defendants to handle their charges in a way that will help them achieve the most favorable outcome possible.
