Lamar Odom could be charged by the District Attorney over his use of cocaine that led up to his hospitalization in Nevada.
“The Nye County Sheriff’s Office has now asked the Nye County District Attorney’s Office to review a request for prosecution against Lamar Odom for Use of, or Under the Influence of, a Controlled Substance,” Nye County District Attorney Angela A. Bello tells PEOPLE in a statement. “The D.A.’s office will take the time needed to appropriately review that request, along with all evidence that might support that request, in order to reach a just conclusion regarding whether to advance charges. ”
Odom was rushed to the hospital Oct. 13, and hours later, law enforcement officials traveled to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas to take a sample of his blood to use for a toxicology test. On 911 tapes released from the incident, a man can be heard saying Odom had used cocaine.
While his health battle rages on, he could face drug charges. I would fathom that maybe it’s best to wait and see if he’s going to get better before charging him with a crime?
Yes, he is guilty of abusing drugs, but if he’s not going to be the same person that he was beforehand, charges won’t help him at all. Instead, shouldn’t they be focused on maybe getting him the help he needs?
