Drug arrests following traffic stops

Drug charges can arise out of a variety of situations. Sometimes a long investigation precedes an arrest. Other times they can arise out of another interaction involving law enforcement. A common scenario is a drug arrest following a routine traffic stop. In these types of situations a vehicle could be pulled over for something as simple as a broken taillight or failing to use one’s signal, only for law enforcement to find illegal drugs. A North Carolina man recently found himself in this situation.

The man was arrested when vehicle in which he was a passenger was stopped and was allegedly found to be in possession of marijuana and cocaine. As a result he was taken into custody and charged with several crimes.

Because penalties for a drug conviction can be harsh, following a drug arrest and charges it is vital that the accused contact a criminal defense lawyer to secure help fighting the charges. Regardless of the circumstances leading up to the arrest police officers throughout the nation, including the state of North Carolina, must follow certain procedures that have been created to protect the rights of the accused. When they do not, it is possible that the charges against the accused could be completely dismissed.

If an attorney is not able to completely eliminate the charges you face, he or she may be able to reduce the penalties that accompany a conviction. Depending upon what you are charged with, timing could be of the essence. Accordingly, the sooner you contact a lawyer for help, the better.
