What to do at DWI checkpoints

During holidays, North Carolina drivers need to be vigilant of law enforcement's extra efforts to crack down on dangerous driving behaviors. Over the last Thanksgiving weekend, police officers set up more DWI checkpoints than usual, reports WNCT. You can expect similar efforts to pop up around Christmas and New Year's Eve. 

Federal prison sentence handed down in arson case

A 55-year-old man was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison on charges of arson and making false statements. He submitted a falsified tax return to a bank in an effort to get a construction loan. The man had owned several properties in North Carolina, but he was in financial trouble at the time of the loan application. The arson charge was related to the intentional burning of a rental home that the defendant owned.

North Carolina postal workers accused of selling drugs

Five postal workers have been charged with stealing mail and selling drugs according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina. The five men, who all worked at the United States Postal Service's Processing and Distribution Center Annex in Fayetteville according to reports, each face up to 10 years in a federal prison if convicted on all the charges they are facing.

Evidence collection, raids and the FBI

Finding FBI agents at your door is an intimidating experience. When the FBI arrives and tells you your house is going to be searched, it can feel like you have no rights at all. An FBI raid can discourage people from asserting their rights in a way that Raleigh police or North Carolina state police can't match. That should not be the case. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is restricted by Federal rules of search and seizure. They do not have unlimited rights to conduct a raid on your home whenever they please. The FBI can and should be held accountable if they violate your Civil Rights.
