Drug crimes defendants can face aggressive prosecution

Did you know that you could be charged with a drug crime even though you never purchased or actually possessed an illegal substance?

As a result, many innocent people find themselves facing drug charges for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

4 arrested for drug crimes related to cocaine trafficking

The four defendants, who range in age from 22 to 40, are facing accusations of drug crimes related to cocaine trafficking and conspiracy.

What happens if I refuse a breath test for DWI?

North Carolina residents who are subject to a drunk driving traffic stop may not know that they have the legal right to refuse a breath test while they are pulled over. Drivers who are stopped because of alcohol-related offenses may be asked to submit to a breath or blood test in connection with their DWI. These drivers may benefit from a breath test refusal, even though penalties for this decision may seem severe at the time.

The basics of federal prosecution

Criminal defendants who are accused of violations in criminal court may have a lot of questions about their looming legal process.

Poacher gets 5 months for federal crimes in national park

A North Carolina man has received five months in jail for possessing an illegal plant.
