Man faces multiple drug charges following search of home

Many drug-related arrests follow a search of the accused person's home or vehicle. In some cases, however, officers will perform a search in violation of the accused's Fourth Amendment rights. Under the Fourth Amendment, U.S. citizens are protected against unreasonable searches and seizures of their homes. In other words, if an officer performs a search without probable cause to do so, any contraband he or she finds may not be used in the case against the accused.

School bus driver faces DUI charges

When people think of DUI charges, they often assume that the driver was under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.

In fact, in certain circumstances, shoplifting can be a felony charge, placing you at risk for high fines and even time behind bars.
