Whenever the general public thinks about a Playboy Playmate, they usually think of elegance, class and the opportunities such a distinction provides. However, many of these women have serious challenges in life, and even need the assistance of a skilled Los Angeles Drug Crimes Attorney to keep them out of prison or free from fines. In a recent case, Playboy Playmate Suzanne Stokes was put in prison after police said the actress was carrying meth in her car. Stokes, Miss February 2000, was originally pulled over for blowing through a stop sign. However, during the stop of the 31 year old, police learned that there was an active warrant for her arrest stemming from a previous traffic violation. Cops then performed a search of her car and found methamphetamines. Stokes was taken to a nearby jail after her arrest and was booked on a felony drug possession charge. She was released after posting $11,000 bail. All of this took place in Hollywood in the early morning hours, a time when many people are partying and police tend to troll for drunk drivers and other potentially dangerous behavior.
As you can see, Ms. Stokes will absolutely need a skilled Attorney to protect her freedoms as she is not only dealing with a drug crime, but a warrant for her arrest. As a felony, she could be facing years in prison, heavy fines and probation that will complicate the rest of her life. Probation can prohibit the types of travel that are necessary for any actress, and can make simple actions that regular people can do very difficult. Stokes will have a difficult time with prosecutors because of her warrant, so she'll need a lawyer who can plea bargain, make deals and convince the judge or lawyer to side with their client.
