Father and son arrested after raid

Residents of North Carolina who are concerned about the prevalence of illicit drug use and trafficking in the state may be interested to learn of two arrests by the State Bureau of Investigation. On March 17, 2017, a 59-year-old physician and his 27-year-old son were both arrested after warrants were served at their home. It is uncertain if either individual has legal representation.

The SBI conducted raids at the physician's home and his medical office. The physician, who was employed at the Leo Jenkins Cancer Center in Greenville, has been charged with three counts of trafficking opium or heroin. The charges stem from the fraudulent prescriptions he wrote for the drugs. The doctor is currently jailed on a $4.5 million bond.

During the raid conducted at the home, the agents discovered child pornography on a computer belonging to the son. He was subsequently charged with six counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and is currently being held on a $150,000 bond.

Being convicted of drug offenses related to heroin may result in incarceration and fines. An attorney who practices criminal law may provide a number of services to individuals who are facing drug charges. The attorney may examine the circumstances surrounding the arrest of the individual and the seizure of any evidence. A thorough investigation may be conducted and may include reviewing police reports, examining warrants and speaking with witnesses.

A criminal law attorney will work to ensure that a client's rights were not violated. Depending on the factors of the case, the attorney may negotiate to have the charges reduced or dismissed. If necessary the attorney will advocate on behalf of a client during a trial in order to obtain an acquittal.
