Helping you prove cause and liability in a car crash

Driving a vehicle is part of many of our routines. A motor vehicle helps us get to work, school, stores and other destinations. While the resourcefulness of automobiles is very evident, the risks and dangers they present are equally clear. Distracted driving, reckless driving and drunk driving are growing concerns on the roadways. They are also the culprits for many serious automobile collisions occurring on roadways in North Carolina and other states across the nation.

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.
