ND’s use of drug informants continues despite death

Being accused of any criminal offense can be an incredibly frightening experience, especially in instances where a person has never been charged with a crime before. Beyond that, many people are unfamiliar with the law or their rights in such cases, which leads to them making uninformed and/or inadvisable legal decisions. Some young people, for instance, are persuaded by North Dakota law enforcement agencies to become undercover drug informants in order to avoid criminal charges even though such conduct can be incredibly dangerous.

No-trespass order poses legal concerns for citizens’ rights

Grand Forks residents typically have the right to visit and congregate on public property without fear of being questioned or harassed by law enforcement. There are instances, however, where authorities can raise concerns and/or prohibit citizens from setting foot on specific public property sites. It is largely up to law enforcement officers and other authorities to use discretion when determining whether and why someone should be issued a no-trespass order. Consequently, there are also times when the validity of such orders must be questioned for their constitutionality.

Internet crimes and questionable conduct

For as popular as the Internet is, guidelines concerning legal and illegal Internet activity are relatively unknown to many people. The fact of the matter is that some people do not understand that what they are doing is actually illegal unless or until they are charged with a cybercrime. In such cases, we here at Dusek Law are committed to educating our clients about North Dakota state and federal Internet crime guidelines, as well as their rights. We also encourage you and everyone else who uses the Internet to educate yourself about some of the online conduct that is considered illegal.

A discussion of North Dakota drug paraphernalia guidelines

In the state of North Dakota, the nature and severity of charges that a person faces for a drug offense can depend upon multiple factors. For instance, misdemeanor and/or felony charges can be issued in some cases involving particular types of drug paraphernalia. Understanding the law and how it is applied in specific cases can be difficult, and recent changes to state guidelines may affect how future drug offenses are handled.
