NC woman sentenced for identity theft scheme

A recent North Carolina case highlights how simple identity theft can lead to an extensive criminal enterprise involving multiple federal offenses. The United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina announced in September that a Raleigh woman would be sentenced to 96 months in prison for profiting from stolen financial information.

Students may see mixed signals about marijuana use

With marijuana use becoming more socially acceptable throughout the country, penalties for its use by college athletes have been reduced. Additionally, in what appears to be a new fad, middle and high school students are also using pot in e-cigarettes. On the other hand, marijuana use has only been legalized in a few states, and North Carolina is not one of them.

North Carolina man sentenced for selling cocaine

A 53-year-old North Carolina man was sentenced to a prison term of almost six years on Aug. 29 for possessing 28 grams of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office. The sentence was handed down in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina in Raleigh. Reports indicate that the man will serve five years of supervised release after completing his 71-month custodial sentence.

Doctor who prescribed excessive opioids sentenced to 20 years

A medical doctor who formerly worked in Lumberton received a 20-year sentence to federal prison after convictions on 20 counts of distributing the prescription narcotic oxycodone unlawfully. He came under official scrutiny for his prescribing practices in 2013, when a pharmacist complained to the North Carolina Medical Board about the doctor's large number of opioid prescriptions.
