What does entrapment mean in a North Carolina case?

Many people misunderstand the entrapment defense and how it works in a criminal case in North Carolina. The issue of entrapment often arises when state or federal law enforcement agents conduct an undercover operation. These stings often aim to detect drug trafficking activity but can also happen in a white-collar context to uncover activities such as fraud or bribery.

Your social media activity could lead to criminal charges

Many people in Raleigh and across the country rely on social media so much that they use it to inform their friends, family and the public about their activities, thoughts and feelings. Some of the information they share is not meant for public knowledge. If you intentionally or accidentally post something online that shows you engaging in criminal activity, you could end up getting arrested.
