Charlotte Drug Crime Defense Lawyer
Drug Paraphernalia and the Law
Was your home, dorm room or automobile searched? In an effort to discourage drug use the North Carolina legislature enacted a law prohibiting the possession of drug paraphernalia. This gives officers an additional reason to make an arrest if a car search turns up a bong, papers or other items related to drug use after a traffic stop. Although the charge is a misdemeanor, it still carries serious penalties. If you or your child has been arrested on this charge, you need the guidance and defense of a
Charlotte criminal defense attorney to mount a skilled defense on your behalf.
