Woman wants her job back after being cleared of criminal charges

A woman who was accused of conspiracy to distribute drugs and official misconduct was placed on leave without pay in 2014. The police officer is now trying to get her job back after being found not guilty of those charges. Throughout the long ordeal, this woman has maintained that she was innocent. She refused to entertain plea bargains and fought to prove that she wasn't guilty.

Can police take evidence that is left outside without a warrant?

Police typically need a warrant to search your home and confiscate any items, as you have an expectation to privacy in your own home and a search without a warrant is illegal. There are some rare exceptions to this, such as when the police think a third party is in danger.

Drug trafficking and distribution charges demand attention

All drug charges are serious charges because they are associated with serious penalties. Generally, the penalties for drug possession are the least severe and penalties for drug trafficking are the most severe. The interesting thing to note about all drug charges is that these charges can all lead to social consequences, as well as criminal consequences. In order to attempt to minimize the penalties you face, you must take action right away when you are facing drug charges.

Paraphernalia can lead to drug charges in New Jersey

Several American states have now legalized to some degree the possession of marijuana. While New Jersey is not one of these states, many residents believe that the more liberalized marijuana views nationwide mean they will not get into legal trouble over paraphernalia. You should understand that this is not the case. In New Jersey, you could face both federal and state drug charges over paraphernalia.

New Jersey's drug diversion program for those facing drug charges

The exact reasons residents of New Jersey turn to drugs are difficult to pinpoint. What we do know is that once the decision is made, many of the people who become involved with drugs end up breaking the law in some manner. Most of these legal infractions revolve around possession of illicit substances or intent to distribute. Addiction, whether physical or psychological can override common sense and send the addict spiraling into a life at least partly tinged with criminal elements.
