A North Carolina mayor pleaded guilty on Jan. 14 to driving while impaired on election night. Robert L. Williams, Jr., the mayor of Sharpsburg, was sentenced to one day in jail as well as 24 hours of community service and two years of probation. He was elected on May 8, 2018, after courts ordered a rerun of a 2017 election that he had lost by three votes, according to the official count.

Federal drug charges can pose a significant problem for alleged offenders in North Carolina since severe penalties could accompany a conviction.

If you are facing any type of federal drug charges, it's important to understand how working with an attorney can help you to fight back.
