Man settles lawsuit after illegal search and seizure

When police overstep their boundaries, those who pay the consequences often do not know where to turn for help.

North Carolina man faces felony charges after search and seizure

Few would argue that the recent increase in heroin addiction and overdoses is alarming. Law enforcement agencies in North Carolina make a commendable effort to rid the streets of drugs that threaten the lives of many.

These laws protect those suspected of involvement in the drug trade from illegal search and seizure.

When a concerned resident sees something that does not appear to be right, he or she will generally notify the proper authorities.

After one begins to drink, it can be difficult to determine if one is legally able to drive home or if one is risking a drunk driving charge – or worse.
