Drug-related charges often stem from a simple traffic stop. If a person is stopped for speeding or a broken tail light, police may find probable cause to conduct a search of the vehicle.

An ongoing South Carolina drug crimes case, however, is putting these procedures under the microscope.

Law enforcement must still abide by the processes to obtain DNA samples from suspects; but it is inherent to the conversation. Given the very serious nature of sex crimes, this is both a curse and a blessing for everyone involved. DNA evidence can eliminate certain suspects from the equation, while also giving the victim of the terrible crime the security in knowing the right person was caught.
