Drug Charges Archives

South Carolina man charged with possession

Drug charges can have a severe impact on your personal and professional life, not to mention the danger that you may be convicted and face serious penalties. It is important to bear in mind that it is possible to fall foul of drug possession laws even if you were initially being investigated for another alleged offense. A similar set of events befell a man in South Carolina after he was pulled over for reportedly failing to activate his turn signal.

South Carolina man charged with intent to distribute cocaine

Drug convictions can leave a damaging mark on your record that affects your employment prospects and may even be detrimental to other areas of your life. Undergoing a criminal investigation for drug charges can be daunting and distressing, regardless of whether there is any truth to the allegations against you. When faced with such charges, it can be helpful to remain calm in order to present your version of events to the authorities and avoid falsely incriminating yourself.

3 arrested following South Carolina drug raids

In order to crack down on drug use and distribution, drug enforcement officers will often raid properties that come under suspicion of drug activity. If evidence of drug activity is found during a raid, the property owners and other people within the raided property may be arrested on drug charges. But what if you become implicated in a drug crime simply by residing at a property? You may find yourself facing a criminal investigation even if you were completely uninvolved.

Jail time given to 90-year-old man over drug charges

Drug allegations can have a devastating effect on your reputation and your day-to-day life. Even if you are simply under investigation, these allegations can cause strains in your home relationships and even cost you your job. Drug charges are taken very seriously in South Carolina and in the rest of the nation, and it only takes one lapse of judgment to land you in serious trouble. Such was the case with a 90-year-old man who has recently been sentenced to three years in jail.

Women at risk of charges over drug use during pregnancy

Drug charges can have severe implications for those accused, regardless of the substances involved or the circumstances of the allegations. A conviction can result in hefty fines, job loss and even jail terms, not to mention the strain it puts on you and your family. In South Carolina, as in many states, drug charges are taken very seriously, and a new law in another state may be focusing more heavily on penalizing certain drug users.
