Death during a felony crime can bring felony murder charges

The laws regarding murder in North Carolina are by and large clear. However, people are often surprised to learn about the charge of felony murder through accomplice liability. A felony murder charge can be brought against someone who is involved in the commission of a felony that results in another person's death. This applies even if murder was not the intent or if the person charged did not directly kill someone.

Facing heroin-related charges? Understand your case.

While you may have reason to have some controlled substances in your possession legally, such as having a prescription for a narcotic, federal and state laws make it illegal to possess other substances at all. If police suspect that you unlawfully have a drug in your possession or that you have the intention of distributing it, you could face a serious legal predicament.

Man charged with drug possession in North Carolina

A 37-year-old Gilford man was detained Dec. 23, 2018, on several drug charges after police discovered drugs in the rental vehicle he was driving. He was stopped for a routine traffic violation when a drug dog that was accompanying the officer alerted the police to possible drugs after an "open-air search" of the vehicle. Police then conducted a full search of the car.
