Drug crimes can also involve money laundering

People who handle the manufacturing, selling and trafficking of drugs can make a considerable sum of money. The issue that they might run into here is that they can't just deposit the money into the bank without raising some red flags. Banks in the United States are only supposed to allow people to deposit money that's not illegally earned.

Police make drug crime arrest after alleged exchange observed

Facing allegations of a drug crime can be a difficult position to be in. Nonetheless, it is also a situation where the accused can take action to protect him or herself. Initiating a criminal defense could help the accused clear his or her name by dismissing the charges against them, or in some cases, having them reduced.

When can police search for drugs in your automobile?

No one in Cincinnati wants to be pulled over, but the situation can escalate from a mere traffic infraction to more serious charges if police believe the motorist has drugs in his or her vehicle. In this intimidating situation, motorists may wonder what drug crimes they might be accused of and whether the search of their vehicle for potential drugs is even legal.

Alarming drug bust headlines can make defense harder

For years, Ohio authorities have been struggling to find ways to respond to an increase in overdoses associated with opioids. The situation is serious, but the efforts to fight the problem can lead to news headlines and stories that seem designed to frighten the public more than educate them.

Doctor faces criminal charges for wrongful prescriptions

Doctors have a legal duty to adhere to the appropriate standard of care when it comes to treating and prescribing medication for patients. When a doctor prescribes unnecessary medication, they may face criminal charges for their drug crimes and severe penalties. One Ohio doctor has been indicted on 200 counts of felony drug charges after allegedly prescribing painkillers to patients without medical reason to do so.

What is a "reasonable expectation of privacy?"

Police officers in Ohio will often search for drugs on someone's person, in their homes or in their vehicles. The Fourth Amendment protects people against illegal search and seizures in many areas. However, it is important to note that the Fourth Amendment does not apply unless one has a reasonable expectation of privacy in the area that was searched.

Could I be charged with drug possession for prescription drugs?

When people think of drug crimes, they often think of possessing or distributing illegal substances, such as cocaine, LSD and heroin. However, possessing any drug without a prescription can result in criminal charges. In fact, with the prevalence of prescription drug abuse these days, law enforcement and criminal courts have been focused on cracking down on illegal prescription drug use and distribution.
