Bon Jovi's daughter facing drug charges

It's a safe assumption to say Louisiana residents have heard the name Jon Bon Jovi, the famous lead singer. However, what many might not know is that Jon Bon Jovi is married and has four children. His eldest child, Stephanie Bongiovi, is 19-years-old. She is a college student and lives in a dorm room on campus.

Last week, police were called to a dorm on her college campus concerning reports that she was unresponsive as a result of drug use. Both police and emergency medical responders arrived on the scene to find Bongiovi alive but in need of medical treatment. She was transported to the hospital.

A small amount of heroin was initially found and a 21-year-old male student was also arrested in connection to her alleged overdose.

Police also obtained a search warrant for Bongiovi's dorm room. There investigators allegedly found more heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Both students were charged with possession of a controlled substance, and Bongiovi was also charged with possession of marijuana.

These college students will now not only have to most likely face disciplinary actions from their school, as using drugs is in violation of the college's policy, but they will also face potentially serious consequences if they are convicted in a criminal court upon the drug charges they face.

In general, aside from ruining one's reputations, drug charges can also lead to consequences such as expensive fines and jail time. A drug conviction at such a young age can also have a negative impact on future employment opportunities. This is why it's important for anyone facing drug charges to seek out legal representation to learn about what options may be available in order to lessen those consequences.
