Federal officer charged with bribery, drug crimes

Law enforcement officers occupy a sensitive role within our communities. They are charged with keeping people safe and maintaining law and order all while building the trust of individuals in marginalized communities. Many of the law enforcement officers who work in Arkansas are upstanding individuals and work tirelessly to protect and serve their fellow citizens.

From time to time, though, law enforcement officials find themselves on the wrong side of the law and facing criminal charges. Recently a Little Rock-based agent with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) was charged with several crimes. In particular, the allegations claim that the officer took bribes from alleged drug dealers in exchange for providing them with information about upcoming drug investigations.

The DEA officer allegedly received $62,000 for providing an alleged drug dealer with information on how to securely make drug shipments. In addition to bribery charges, the officer is facing federal drug distribution conspiracy charges. He has not entered a plea on any of his charges.

Prior posts on this criminal defense legal blog have discussed the severity of punishments that can befall a person who is charged with alleged drug crimes. This officer may see his career ended and his life ruined if he is not able to produce a strong criminal defense strategy that combats the damaging charges that have been lodged against him. He may choose to work with a criminal defense attorney to fight his charges, and others who are facing alleged drug crimes can also retain criminal defense lawyers to guide them through their options for protecting their rights.
