3 excellent criminal defense strategies

When it comes to defending yourself against a crime in North Carolina, you will want to review the facts that led to your arrest carefully. This review will determine whether or not you should admit to the alleged crimes or defend yourself against them in court. It will also determine the most appropriate criminal defense strategies to employ.

Nursing home director accused of drug trafficking

A Laurinburg nursing home director -- who managed a nursing home cited for countless state violations -- was arrested last year and accused of drug violations. Authorities charged the woman with two counts of felony drug trafficking in heroin/opium in March 2016. According to the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office, the woman will soon appear in court to face the charges.

Purple drank warning: This beverage is not legal

You might remember several years ago when "Purple Drank" -- a beverage made by mixing anti-histamine, codeine, promethazine and Sprite -- made it into the news. Rapper Lil' Wayne spoke publicly about being addicted to this Schedule V drug, which can be made from easily procurable ingredients.

When a drug-related search and seizure is unlawful

Getting charged with drug possession can happen following a routine traffic stop. This is actually one of the most common ways that North Carolina residents get accused of drug possession. A patrol officer might pull you over for a speeding violation, see something that looks like drugs on your backseat and then order a search of your vehicle. If the search reveals illicit substances, you might get arrested and charged with possession.

Northampton County officers seize 78 bricks of heroin

The Northampton Sheriff's Office conducted a massive heroin bust last week. Following a 10-month investigation, officers raided a suspected drug home along Highway 258. The officers claim to have found 78 heroin bricks, 5.3 ounces of cocaine, 4.2 ounces of crack, an AK-47, a handgun and five vehicles at the residence.

North Carolina man sentenced to a max of 70 years in prison

Being accused of drug crime is clearly not the same as being convicted of a drug crime. In North Carolina, anyone accused of a crime, no matter how serious the charges happens to be, will have the legal right a criminal defense. Furthermore, not until -- and only if -- a North Carolina court finds the accused person guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, will he or she be subject to the threat of punishment. Until that moment, the individual will remain innocent of his or her alleged crimes.

Man accused of smuggling 1.7 pounds of fentanyl in his stomach

Narcotics investigators from the Wake County Sheriff's Office arrested a man and accused him of carrying 1.7 pounds of fentanyl in his stomach. Allegedly, the man swallowed packets of this powerful drug additive before boarding his flight to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The 29-year-old man departed from Orlando, Florida, just hours before his arrest.

Did you get arrested for carrying your prescription medicine?

Many North Carolina residents rely on their prescription drugs just to make it through the day. Pain medications can work miracles to help someone alleviate back pain that would normally prevent a worker from doing his or her job. Sleeping pills can help an insomniac get the bed rest his or she needs, and psychological medications can calm a patient's unbearable anxiety.

Police say they found 16 pounds of marijuana in hotel room

Police conducted a search in two Budget Inn rooms earlier this week. The search resulted in the arrest of a 25-year-old man. Allegedly, the man was hiding 16 pounds of marijuana in his hotel room. Police say that as soon as they entered one room, the man ran away on foot, but they apprehended him shortly thereafter.
