Drunk driving charge against North Carolina woman

For many people, the end of a romantic relationship is often complicated. Often, the relationship lingers, and sometimes leads to bitter feelings, including hurt and anger. Regardless of how difficult a breakup can be, it rarely leads to violence. Unfortunately, police have arrested a woman in North Carolina and accused her of  drunk driving, assault and domestic violence.

Eight face criminal charges over North Carolina protest

Most people in North Carolina and across the country realize that the United States is filled with people who are passionate about their beliefs. Unfortunately, the views held are varied and frequently in opposition to others, potentially creating conflict. In fact, eight people were recently arrested and now face criminal charges following a protest.

Police say North Carolina death was domestic violence

When a crime occurs in North Carolina and other areas of the country, there is an understandable desire for answers. Specifically, people often want someone to blame. But once a name is provided, unfortunately, some may not question the incident any further, assuming guilt rather than relying on a presumption of innocence that is guaranteed in criminal court proceedings. For example, a man is now in a precarious situation after he was accused of being involved in a domestic violence situation that led to a woman's death.

Lawmaker seeks to change language on domestic violence forms

When someone is seeking to protect themselves from an abusive partner, they typically seek to fill out a government form for an order of protection. However, in North Carolina, same-sex couples dealing with domestic violence issues may have difficulty completing this paperwork. This is because in the state, the paperwork required for an order of protection in a domestic case only has categories for opposite-sex couples, unmarried individuals with a child and household members.

Court rules on long-term state tracking for sex crimes offenders

Sex offender registry laws can be the source of controversy, especially where tracking requirements are concerned. One organization, the National Association for Rational Sexual Offense Laws, has spent time challenging the ankle tracking devices that those convicted of sex crimes have previously been required to wear. The issue of whether this is constitutional or not was recently addressed by a North Carolina Court of Appeals, and the decision may have an impact on those tried for sex crimes in the future.
