Possibly mentally challenged woman faces federal drug charge

In some cases in which residents of Oregon or other states face criminal charges, medical and mental health care may be more appropriate than time behind bars. One such case involves a 63-year-old woman who is accused of smuggling cocaine worth $500,000 through an airport in another state on a recent Friday morning. At a hearing, the judge ordered the woman who is now facing a federal drug charge to be medically and mentally evaluated.

Federal charges filed against 3 alleged meth distributors

Facing criminal charges in Oregon or elsewhere -- regardless of the types of crimes -- is a serious matter that must be handled appropriately. However, when it comes to potential penalties such as fines and prison sentences, federal charges tend to be more serious. For this reason, defending federal charges can be more complicated than state criminal charges.

Convict's girlfriend faces federal charges after recorded calls

Oregon residents may be interested in learning that monitored telephone calls from a man behind bars to his girlfriend led to her arrest.

Her boyfriend is due to be released from federal prison -- where he is serving time for drug crimes -- in November 2018.

Federal computer crime charge not to be navigated alone

The internet  provides information and entertainment to satisfy the inclinations and interests of just about everybody. However, not all online activities are acceptable to society, and even if a person is engaged in something that seems not to cause harm to anybody, it may get him or her into trouble with the law. In Oregon and elsewhere, a federal computer crime accusation can stigmatize an individual for life, regardless of whether a conviction is actually secured in court.
