Federal Crimes Archives

Man sentenced to 32 years for bank fraud scheme

On July 10, it was reported that a North Carolina man was convicted of being involved in an elaborate bank fraud scheme in which he reportedly pocketed approximately $1.6 million. The 31-year-old Greensboro man was sentenced on July 9 to 32 years in prison and five years of supervised release.

Rocky Mount man headed to prison after firearms conviction

The recent conviction of a 27-year-old man from Rocky Mount on a firearms charge related to a shooting and pistol-whipping assault arose from the Take Back North Carolina Initiative. This initiative has assigned regional federal prosecutors throughout the state to increase the prosecution of violent crimes. The prosecutors have supported the mission of Project Safe Neighborhoods, which coordinates the efforts of law enforcement agencies in the pursuit of violent criminals.

Understanding federal carjacking charges and penalties

It is not uncommon for motor vehicles to be stolen in North Carolina. There is a difference, however, between certain types of car theft. Carjacking is an allegation that can result in major penalties if there is a conviction. The circumstances will determine the level of charges. Those who are confronted with charges related to carjacking should be cognizant of when it will be considered a federal offense.

Man indicted on child pornography charges facing 20 years

On May 23, it was reported that a North Carolina man was indicted on child pornography charges by a federal grand jury. According to the indictment, the 22-year-old Wilmington man was accused of receiving and possessing multiple files that contained sexual images with minors in them.

The Crime Of Googling

Users are just beginning to understand the information-gathering practices of companies like Google and Facebook. An ordinary online presence can reveal a person's income, buying habits, political affiliations, hobbies, susceptibility to marketing, associates and physical location. We all knowingly or unknowingly provide this information to companies that use it for their own gain.

Industrial Commission Crackdown Continues

The North Carolina Industrial Commission is responsible for, among other things, upholding the workers' compensation laws of the state. This enforcement includes actions to penalize employers who do not carry workers' compensation insurance or who fail to meet their duties when a worker suffers an injury.

Evidence Of Nothing – Understanding Forensic “Science”

The general understanding of evidence, as it pertains to criminal prosecutions, falls far short of the reality. Misinformation and misunderstanding by the public has repercussions for people who find themselves charged with a crime. While the law requires prosecutors to meet the burden of proof with evidence, many people assume that anyone charged with a crime must be guilty. Would a prosecutor really pursue charges if he or she wasn't positive the accused was guilty?

Would an impersonal criminal system be an improvement?

Judges perform a difficult and vital role in this country. The decisions they make shape the lives of countless Americans in ways both subtle and dramatic. In criminal courts, the decisions made by judges make all the difference for the people facing charges. Attempts to shift the burden of decision-making a judge to an algorithm or mathematical equation should be scrutinized carefully. Mistakes may go ignored if they can hide behind the facade of impartiality.
