When being accused of a crime, every individual has rights that must be upheld throughout the process. Unfortunately, many may be unaware of their rights, and furthermore uncertain how to respond to the situation. A 40-year-old man has been arrested and accused of drunk driving after he allegedly drove to a fire station in North Carolina to submit an application while under the influence of alcohol.

Separate traffic stops lead to drug charges for 2

Facing allegations of a traffic violation can be stressful enough in its own right. However, should officers claim to have probable cause to further investigate, the resulting search may leave an individual facing drug charges if illegal substances are found in the process. Two men have been arrested and accused of drug crimes following separate traffic stops that are said to have taken place on the same day in North Carolina.

Operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol is never advisable and can lead to criminal charges. However, in some cases, one may face drunk driving charges solely based on the words of another party, without being found behind the wheel of a vehicle. An elementary school teacher is facing DWI charges under similar circumstances in North Carolina after a friend allegedly asked her to pull over for her own safety.

After receiving information of the possible presence of drug activity in a particular area, authorities will launch an investigation into the matter.

Are drug courts effective?

If you are struggling with drug addiction and find yourself facing drug-related criminal charges, you may have more to worry about than whether you will ultimately have to spend time behind bars.
