Rapper with felony overstays visa, faces deportation

Sometimes, familiar faces are arrested by the police for surprising crimes. Take, for example, the rapper 21 Savage, who is now in federal immigration custody over claims that he overstayed his visa and has federal drug charge convictions.

Does the kind of drug you possess matter to the court?

Drug trafficking is a serious offense that can lead to federal charges. When you face federal charges, you need to know that the penalties can be much more significant than in cases with misdemeanor charges. They are also likely to be more serious than state charges.

6 people face federal charges after investigations

Federal charges are significant, so if you're facing them as a result of drug possession or distribution, you need to take steps to avoid conviction. In light of the significant impact of the opioid crisis in America, there are more drug busts taking place than in the past. More people are being arrested, and harsher penalties are being levied.

Federal and local authorities team up to arrest 27 people

After a four-month-long investigation known as Operation 30906, state, local and federal authorities arrested 27 individuals earlier this week in the Richmond County region of Augusta, Georgia. The code name for the operation, 30906, refers to a zip code in the area known for a high rate of violent crime, drug dealing and even counterfeiting.

Federal drug charges may just be the fight of your life

Drug charges are always a very serious matter that you should fight with all your available resources. However, if you face federal drug charges, the stakes are suddenly much higher. Like many crimes, drug crimes that involve crossing state lines, for instance, escalate in seriousness because they now involve not only state laws but also federal laws. If your alleged drug offense is only minor, then you may only have to deal with the state-level laws that apply, but once you cross into federal territory, the sentencing gets much more severe.

Drugs crises: Triggers for increased federal, state prosecutions

Few can be unaware of the drug crises in the United States. Just this week, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation issued an alert about the fact that methamphetamine-related deaths rose 40 percent from 2016 to 2017. This news comes even as headlines across the country continue to herald how opioid overdose deaths remain a significant cause for alarm.
