Three in North Carolina are facing drug and firearm charges

Police searches can have a wide variety of results. When authorities in North Carolina suspect that unlawful activities are taking place, a search warrant will likely be sought. However, even when this step is taken and evidence is collected, this does not necessarily mean that all proper measures were taken. Thus, when a defendant is charged with crimes related to the search that was conducted, this does not mean this evidence will remain. Additionally, if evidence is dropped, a defendant could face lesser or no charges.

Traffic stops and an unlawful search of the vehicle

Being pulled over by a police officer is not an enjoyable experience; however, it is one that most North Carolina motorists experience at least once in their lifetime. While a traffic stop could result in a warning or a minor speeding ticket, they could also evolve into a much larger situation. If police officers suspect that something illegal might be going on, they might seek to search your vehicle. Depending on what officers uncover, a simple traffic stop could turn into a drug charge.

What are the penalties for drug possession?

Facing charges for possession of a drug might seem like a minor charge when it comes to drug crimes, however, this charge could result in a defendant facing serious consequences if convicted. Depending on the type of controlled substance the accused is found in possession of and the quantity of the drug they currently possess, one could face a minor possession charge or they could face a possession charge with the intent to distribute. Both carry very different charges and penalties.

When individuals in North Carolina and elsewhere are accused of a crime, many things rush through their mind.

Penalties for possessing a precursor for a controlled substance

Facing a drug crime can be a very serious offense.

Traffic stop in Cherokee County results in drug charges

Being stopped by law enforcement is an overwhelming and frustrating experience for North Carolina motorists. While it might seem like an inconvenience, there is often a purpose for the traffic stop. However, it is important to note that not all stops are lawful.

This is true even when a driver fails to stop and attempts to flee police.

Helping you assert an aggressive defense against a drug charge

When individuals in North Carolina and elsewhere are accused of a crime, they are often overwhelmed by the situation, feeling helpless against the evidence the state has supposedly collected against them.

Thus, it is imperative to take a stand, assert your right to a criminal defense and protect your rights.

Facing marijuana drug charges?

Marijuana is one type of drug that North Carolina is working to decriminalize. This does not mean that, if you were recently arrested -- or are in the near future -- for marijuana possession, sales or trafficking that you will not face drug charges or penalties -- if convicted. As the current laws stand, the consequences for certain marijuana-related drug crimes can still have quite an impact on your life.
