Two men are brought up on drug charges after a train transaction

Being arrested for distributing drugs is a very serious offense accompanied by heavy repercussions. Massachusetts law enforcement has a responsibility to its residents to keep the streets clean by placing people who distribute drugs behind bars. Those who face drug charges could be paying heavy penalties and spend some time in jail for the crime.

State trooper is hit by someone drunk driving

Law enforcement patrol the streets in an effort to keep all drivers safe. That job does have some risk involved when working on a Massachusetts highway. One of the ways that a trooper can be injured while doing his or her job is when a person is speeding. Another potential way an officer can be injured is from a person who is drunk driving.

Police are searching for a man accused of drug charges

Local and federal authorities are banding together to make some changes by cleaning up the streets. By combining forces, both are looking to rid Massachusetts of drugs, guns and gangs which have an adverse effect on the community. Drugs have been known to lead to health issues and, sometimes, death. Because the stakes are so high, drug charges can amount to long jail sentences and hefty penalties for those involved with using and distributing them.

Massachusetts assault and battery: Man charged in alleged attacks

In Massachusetts, allegations of assault are taken very seriously and can be prosecuted aggressively. A conviction can lead to a lengthy jail or prison sentence, which can have a long-term impact on an individual's personal and professional life. A student at Endicott College must now come to terms with this possibility after being charged with aggravated assault and battery. He has been accused of randomly attacking three other students on campus in the early morning hours of Feb. 2.

Many face drug charges in connection with Massachusetts drug ring

Drugs are known for potentially causing health problems and even death, in addition to contributing to many of a community's ills in Massachusetts. These may include crime and poverty, among other social issues. This is why people who end up being convicted of drug charges can face serious consequences, particularly if they were found guilty of the trafficking or distribution of drugs. Before any conviction can take place, however, a person's guilt must be proved according to the strict requirements of our criminal justice system.
