Actor Adam Pally arrested for drug possession

Seattle television fans may be interested to learn that actor Adam Pally was arrested on drug charges in New York City on March 28. He is best known for playing Dr. Peter Prentice on "The Mindy Project" and Max Blum on "Happy Endings".

According to media reports, Pally, 35, was taken into custody after officers allegedly observed him smoking marijuana from an electronic cigarette while standing on West 48th Street. During a search, officers found that he was in possession of a small amount of cocaine. He was charged with misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor criminal possession of marijuana.

Pally, whose other credits include "Making History", "Dirty Grandpa" and "Iron Man 3", was released shortly after his arrest. He is scheduled to make a court appearance in June. He has made no public comment on his arrest.

Individuals arrested for drug possession can face a range of serious consequences, including jail time, fines and the forfeiture of personal property, if they are convicted. In addition, they may lose educational and employment opportunities. However, there are some strategies a criminal defense attorney could employ to help fight drug charges and protect a defendant's future. For example, if police overstepped their authority when they searched the defendant, the case could be thrown out of court. In other circumstances, an attorney may be able to negotiate with prosecutors for a plea deal that reduces the charges and penalties. For example, it may be possible for a defendant to complete a drug treatment program in lieu of going to jail.
