Man living at Cher's home busted for drug dealing

On Sept. 27, California authorities arrested a man on drug charges at Cher's home in Malibu. However, the pop icon and actress is currently on tour in Australia.

According to local media reports, deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office served a search warrant at the property following a two-week drug investigation. The investigation was reportedly related to the sale of fentanyl in Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

The defendant, age 23, was taken into custody during the course of the raid. While it is not yet known how he is connected to Cher, he was reportedly living on her property. He is accused of selling fentanyl to multiple people, including a Thousand Oaks resident who died as a result of taking the drug. He was charged with a felony drug crime and could be slapped with additional charges at a later date. He was held on $500,000 bail and arraigned at Ventura County Superior Court on Oct. 1.

California residents who have been handed drug crime charges could face serious consequences, including years of prison time and steep fines, if they are convicted. This is particularly true of individuals charged with dealing or trafficking. However, a criminal defense attorney could represent a drug defendant in court and work to protect his or her future. After reviewing the details of the case, the attorney could develop a defense strategy against the allegations. In some circumstances, this could lead to the charges being dismissed. In others, the strategy could be used as leverage to negotiate a plea deal that reduces the charges, which could help the defendant obtain a more lenient sentence.
