A North Carolina man faces drug charges

North Carolina police in Cleveland County are looking for a man who is facing several drug charges. The drug charges follow a search of the man's home. Authorities say they found drugs and drug paraphernalia, though the details of the search may play an important role in any criminal defense. The purported drug paraphernalia was not further described, though it appears that its discovery led to a search warrant to open two safes in the home. Police say they found some drugs and a handgun when the safes were opened.

The North Carolina man faces drug charges ranging from possession to trafficking. There is no indication where the man is at this time, and it is unclear if he is aware of the search or the charges against him. The specific legal grounds upon which the warrants were obtained was not detailed.

The man has previously been convicted of several drug charges in the state before this incident. He is also wanted for a federal probation violation. Even with the difficult legal situation that he is facing, the man has the right to build a defense and fight for the best outcome for himself.

It may be difficult to presume innocence of a man when there is supposedly much evidence against him or her. Nevertheless, everyone accused of a crime in North Carolina is deemed innocent until -- and only if -- proven guilty in court.. Guilt can only be proven with sufficient evidence that is competent, relevant and meets a stringent burden of proof.

Drug charges are intimidating. Those accused typically feel the power of the law and the condemnation of the public. However, there is a substantial difference between an accusation of criminal conduct and a criminal conviction. Once this man is apprehended, the police investigation and evidence prosecutors intend to use in support of their allegations will merit careful scrutiny to ensure that his legal rights have been fully protected and to consider the manner in which to proceed in court.
