1 dies from overdose, dealer faces over 10 years in prison

If you're accused of drug crimes, then you know it takes a strong defense to help you get through the case with the least amount of damage to your reputation and freedom. Sometimes, you can show your humanity in hopes of receiving a lighter sentence, especially if your situation involves a death.

2 ways to defend against drug possession charges

Even if police accuse you of possessing only a small amount of drugs, the allegations are serious, and you could face significant punishments if the allegations result in a conviction. For this reason, North Carolina residents will want to do everything they can to defend against a drug possession charge if they can establish a viable defense strategy.

Do you need an appellate attorney for your criminal trial?

Imagine you lost your drug crimes trial and now you're awaiting sentencing. That's bad enough, but to make matters worse, you're innocent. You know that you didn't do the crime they've convicted you of, and you know that your criminal proceedings were completely unfair. What are your options?

Schedule I Drugs: What drugs have the severest punishments?

3 types of drug crimes charges

Drug crimes are some of the most common crimes that any individual can be accused of, but that doesn't make them any less serious.

Drug crime allegations: How to choose a defense attorney

No matter the circumstances of your arrest, if you've been charged with drug-related crimes, you're probably feeling stressed, vulnerable and scared.

Will a drug crimes conviction interfere with federal student aid?

North Carolina university students who benefit from federal student aid need to be aware that a drug crimes conviction could have serious and negative implications for their ability to continue receiving this aid. In fact, any state or federal drug-related convictions for possession, selling or trafficking drugs will count against your eligibility for student aid -- but only if the alleged crime happens while the individual is receiving student aid.

Intentional versus unintentional crimes

Sometimes North Carolina residents intentionally commit a crime -- perhaps by knowingly selling an illegal drug. Other times, they unintentionally commit a crime -- perhaps by accidentally walking away with someone else's cellphone or by breaking a law that they didn't know existed (or a law that they didn't fully understand). When a crime is committed by a defendant unintentionally, it's defined in two different ways by referring to it as either a "mistake in fact" or "mistake of law."
