Former NFL player charged with intent to distribute drugs

| May 29, 2014 | Drug Charges

Due to the continuing war on drugs in this country, it can be difficult to defend a case where an individual is caught using or possessing any kind of illegal substance. But drug trafficking is one of the worst offenses in the case of drug charges. While individuals who sell drugs are often users themselves, the idea that they are selling drugs to others often increases the penalties against them. All too often media reports surface that those accused of distributing drugs to others are public figures.

Reche Caldwell, a former NFL player, was recently charged in Tampa with possessing 4.8 pounds of a pure form of ecstasy with the intent to distribute. Caldwell signed for the package, delivered by courier, which contained what authorities say was the drug known as “Molly” valued at up to $80 per gram. The estimated street value of the package is more than $60,000 with a possible distribution value of close to $180,000.

Caldwell was a second-round draft pick in 2002 but hasn’t played in the NFL since 2007. This wasn’t his first run-in with the law this year. He is currently awaiting trial on a January arrest for his involvement in a gambling house and bookmaking operation.

An arrest for drug offenses can bring consequences that follow you for the rest of your life. Whether your arrest grabs the headlines like that of a former professional athlete or it just appears on the police blotter like most others, you will benefit from legal counsel to help minimize the charges against you.
