2 face drug possession charges after police chase

Law enforcement officers understand too well the supply chain in the illegal drug trade. While those higher up in the chain may face harsher penalties, even lesser crimes like drug possession can disrupt a person's life and eliminate many opportunities, such as obtaining jobs and funding one's education. Two men in North Carolina are right to have concerns about their futures following their recent arrests.

North Carolina underage drinking charges follow fatal crash

Minors consuming alcohol is a problem across the country. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people under the age of 21 are responsible for consuming 11 percent of all alcohol, and 90 percent of the time, they binge drink. While 10 percent of those who hold valid drivers licenses are legally under the drinking age, 14 percent of all fatal accidents in North Carolina result from underage DUIs. A recent accident has led to underage drinking charges for a young man; however, those may be only the beginning of his troubles.

Uniformed North Carolina police woman arrested for drunk driving

County police were patrolling an area of highways just after 5 p.m. one recent evening when an officer reported seeing a car traveling between 80 and 90 mph in a 55 mph zone near a highway construction area. The officer gave pursuit and was able to intercept the car. When the officer approached the car, he says he saw the driver wearing a police uniform. She was apparently a 49-year-old North Carolina State Police officer.

Search and seizure of cell phone records may require a warrant

It's no secret that the law struggles to keep up with technology. In fact, in many cases, laws change because individuals file lawsuits that claim their rights have been violated through the unregulated use of technology. North Carolina residents who have concerns about the way law enforcement a at the state and federal levels discover incriminating evidence through technology may be interested in a case before the U.S. Supreme Court that may affect search and seizure laws across the country.
