JaMarcus Russell pleads Not Guilty to Possession of Codeine Syrup

Posted on Jul 21, 2010 in Celebrity Justice

JaMarcus Russell plead not guilty today in connection with his arrest in
his hometown of Mobile, Alabama for possession of codeine syrup without
a valid prescription. Codeine syrup has seen a recent and dramatic rise
in use as it is a main drug used in the making of a recreational drink
called “purple drank” or “sizzurp”. Though a police investigation did
not specifically target Mr. Russell, his name as a user has been
repeatedly used both in his hometown and in Oakland as a member of the
Oakland Raiders.

Time can only tell what will happen to Mr. Russell, but when your name
is coming up multiple times in reports about illegal drug use, things
can only end badly. Mr. Russell may have other options, but as of now,
it seems that the best thing Mr. Russell can hope for is that there is
not enough evidence to convict him or that some procedural process was
violated. Either way, any drug charge is not a thing to take lightly.

If you or someone you know has been arrested or charged with possession
of a controlled substance, contact Bloom Legal at 504-599-9997 to see
what your options are and how Bloom Legal can fight on your behalf.
