For many people in the Wilmington area, posting all their thoughts and actions on social media is the norm. You may enjoy sharing your thoughts and activities on Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram and other popular social media outlets for support, to make new friends and interact with individuals all over the world. But you should keep in mind that what you post online can become evidence if you commit a crime.
You may feel that selling opioids and other synthetic drugs in Wilmington is a good gig for you to have. However, if you have not yet learned how unlawful the activity is, you may not realize how much you stand to lose. The law takes a strict stance against alleged drug dealers and individuals who sell and distribute them. Not only do you risk incarceration, but you may also end up having to live with the knowledge that your actions contributed to someone’s death.
While we all make mistakes, a mistake resulting in a criminal conviction can have a long-term impact on your life. Perhaps the best way for someone to move beyond a conviction is by applying for an expungement.
Think back to when you were a teenager. You might shudder to think about what you wore, how you talked and what kinds of things you liked to do with your friends. Now imagine being judged by those same decisions well into adulthood.
People from across the country come to North Carolina, whether they are college students, corporate executives or families on vacation.
When you think of drug charges, the first thing that may come to mind is a drug dealer. You do not need to sell narcotics to end up with a criminal drug charge in North Carolina. If you are apprehended and it is found you have opioids or prescription drugs on your person that you do not have a legal prescription for, you could end up with criminal drug charges.
There are far too many uninsured drivers in North Carolina, without a doubt. Although the reasons are diverse, it is important for those who do purchase the legally required liability insurance on their vehicles to know what they are buying for themselves.
Drunk driving is still shockingly prevalent. In fact, 2016 saw 10,265 people die on roadways due to alcohol-related crashes.
