A man was arrested this week in Cedar Rapids and is now facing multiple drug charges, after police found a meth lab in his vehicle. For this man, if this is his first arrest, is likely to be the beginning of a long struggle with criminal justice system. He will have to determine with the help of his attorney if he should challenge the arrest at trial or accept some form of a plea bargain.
Police officers are sworn to uphold the law. Society grants them many special privileges to enable them to carry out their duties. So it is always interesting to observe the manner in which they are charged with crimes and prosecuted.
