North Carolina parolee facing new drug charges

On the occasion that they have the opportunity to spend time at home, many individuals can be found tinkering around the house or curled up watching a show on television. The home typically offers one the privacy to do as he or she pleases. However, if such an individual is on parole in North Carolina, this may not always be the case.

Believing that one such individual had committed a parole violation, North Carolina law enforcement officers appeared at his home. Based upon the alleged parole violation, they then searched his home without a warrant. Officers claim to have found cocaine in various forms along with drug paraphernalia. The man was arrested and charged with a variety of drug related charges, including manufacturing cocaine and the intent to sell cocaine. After the fact, warrants were obtained.

In a situation such as this one, the accused will want an experienced defense team reviewing the circumstances surrounding the charges. What caused authorities to believe that the individual originally violated his parole? Was the initial search of his home legally conducted? Was the evidence properly collected? Were the items collected actually what officers claim they were?

For the average North Carolina resident, drug charges can present serious consequences ranging from probation to fines to even jail time. However, for one who is already on parole, the consequences can be even more severe and even cause the individual to lose his parole. It is important that the individual has someone on his or her side fighting for his or her rights.
