Police find marijuana in the residence hall room of Wisconsin man

Being charged with a drug crime can have serious consequences if a conviction follows. Some charges carry more weight than others, but in general consequences can include fines and a prison sentence. In addition, as with other felony convictions, a drug conviction can make it difficult to find a job in the future.

Even a charge for possession of marijuana can have an impact on one's future. A young man from River Falls, Wisconsin, was recently charged with possession of marijuana. He was arrested after campus police officers found what seemed to be marijuana in the young man's on-campus room.

The residence hall manager and an assistant were checking through the residence hall rooms. They are allowed by contract to enter a resident's room, even if it's locked. In this case, the young man's room was locked. Upon entering the young man's room, the police officer found what seemed to be drug paraphernalia: a small pipe. The three also found a substance that appeared to be marijuana.

The young man is the only person who lives in the room that the drugs were found in. Currently it appears that the man will be paying over $700 for the two charges. The man is currently awaiting his next court appearance which is scheduled in March.

Like we stated earlier in the post, drug charges can impact one's future. The young man is currently a Pierce County Board Supervisor as a representative for two Wards in River Falls, Wisconsin. Could a drug conviction jeopardize his supervisory role?
