Search warrants: The need for probable cause

Perhaps you committed a minor traffic offense in North Carolina, and an officer pulled over your vehicle. The officer asks you whether you would consent to a search of your car as the officer believes he or she smells marijuana coming from your vehicle. If you refuse, the officer says that the court will implement a warrant to search, but if you consent, you worry you will face charges for possession of marijuana.

Helping your parent deal with drug charges

Often, when people think of drug charges that can create turmoil in a family, they may think of a parent who is struggling with a drug offense that their teen has been accused of. However, there may be times when an adult child finds themselves in a tough position after their parent has been accused of a drug crime. If you are facing this burden, it is crucial to do everything you can to provide your parent with the support that they need during such a difficult time.

Knowing when words become threats

Nearly everyone in Charlotte is susceptible to saying something they do not mean in the heat of the moment. This understanding is often expected, which is why many come to us here at The Law Office of Kevin L. Barnett surprised when their words result in criminal charges. You might utter something while stressed or under some form of duress that is directed at another yet have absolutely no intention of him or her feeling threatened by it. Unfortunately, it is his or her feelings that are often judging when determining if your actions were indeed criminal.
