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.

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.

False confessions are all too common. Would you confess?

The Innocence Project reports that more than one out of four people who have been convicted of a crime and were later exonerated by DNA evidence made a false confession or an incriminating statement. It might be difficult to understand why someone would admit to a crime, but with a thorough understanding of the psychology of interrogation and social influence, it becomes easier to see how a false confession could happen.

Criminal defense following attempted murder charge

There is much debate about treatment of the mentally ill. Despite the debate, some people who suffer find it difficult to seek help either because they do not know where to go or cannot afford help.

North Carolina homicide leads to arrest

In the aftermath of a tragic event, people often act in unexpected ways. Shock, for example, can cause people to act in ways that are out-of-character.

North Carolina homicide case leaves father facing murder charges

For many in North Carolina, the death of a loved one is the worst thing imaginable.

He recently appeared in court after being released from the hospital.

North Carolina criminal defense: Drug possession charges

There are some in North Carolina who find themselves facing drug charges.

Arrest made in North Carolina triple homicide

Marriage is not easy. Many couples who love each other very much often struggle to have a successful marriage. In some cases, a relationship can suffer from the extra stress of mental illness. Unfortunately, a North Carolina woman, whose family members claim could be mentally ill, has recently been arrested in a triple homicide. One of the victims is said to be her husband.

North Carolina teacher accused of assault on a child

Some in North Carolina would argue that teachers are held to a higher standard when it comes to their relationships with children. Perhaps this is somewhat expected due to the nature of their profession, but those who teach could be at a disadvantage if someone accused them of abuse of a child. Because of the higher standard, officials could be quicker to make an arrest, regardless of the evidence for or against that person. Unfortunately, one teacher has now found herself facing criminal charges because of allegations regarding two children, including child abuse and assault on a child.

Ex-boyfriend arrested in North Carolina homicide

When a young person dies as a result of mysterious circumstances, families -- understandably -- demand justice. Because of this, police and other authorities are eager to provide answers and make an arrest. In many cases, this could mean that police make decisions based past experience rather than conducting a thorough investigation. For example, it is sometimes easy to assume that a homicide victim's significant other is the guilty party. A young man in North Carolina has recently been arrested in connection with the alleged homicide of his former girlfriend.
