Reports of suspicious behavior leads to drug charges for 2

In some cases, it may take little more than the words of another party for authorities to become suspicious of the presence of drug activity. Regardless of the intent behind such allegations, police may initiate an investigation into the matter, and being the subject of a similar process can be stressful and intimidating. Two individuals are facing drug charges after complaints of suspicious behavior led to the search of a hotel room in Tennessee.

2 facing multiple drug charges after investigation in Tennessee

Upon being accused of a crime, many individuals may lack the necessary legal experience to know how to respond to allegations. The decisions made during a similar situation can have a significant impact on its outcome, and seeking guidance on how best to approach the situation is generally advisable. An elementary school teacher and her husband might be in need of such advice after a recent investigation in Tennessee has left them facing drug charges.

3 facing drug charges following traffic stop and search of home

Law enforcement agents across the nation put forth a great deal of effort into reducing the flow of drug activity. In some cases, these efforts may lead to the search of a residence, which may leave those who reside within facing criminal charges if illegal drugs are found. Three individuals have been arrested and are now facing drug charges following the recent search of a home in Tennessee.

What is an illegal search and seizure?

When the police or other law enforcement officials want to enter a private property, they are not legally able to do so without conforming to legal best practices. This is because of the rules set in place thanks to the Fourth Amendment. Often, people are unclear about the legality of a search and seizure after it happens. The following are some commonly asked questions about searches and seizures and their legality.

Getting charged with drug manufacturing

It is a serious crime to be convicted of manufacturing, packaging or cultivating drugs. This is because the law sees drug manufacturers as one of the main roots of the drug problem in the United States. In certain states, there are a very few exceptions to this when it comes to the cultivation and manufacture of marijuana, since it has been legalized for some specific uses.

Programs for convicted drug users

The courts know that people sometimes commit crimes purely because of their drug addiction, and they are often sympathetic to this. If the crime was a nonviolent one and the courts believe that the crime would not have been committed if it were not for the defendant's use of drugs or their drug addiction, they might decide that a drug rehabilitation program is a good alternative to jail time.

Was the drug test I received at work legal?

Often before a prospective employee is due to be hired, employers insist that a drug test takes place. This is very common practice, but is it legal? There are limitations that vary from state to state, but there are times when conducting a drug test is illegal and is classed as an invasion of privacy.

Illegal search and seizures: What you need to know

Law enforcement services frequently conduct search and seizures, whereby they are able to enter a property in search of something they suspect is there. However, they cannot do this on a whim: There are many rules and regulations that go into this procedure, which are directed by the Forth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
