Woman charged with taking cocaine into an Illinois jail

Any form of drug charge can be a highly detrimental thing to have on your record. Regardless of the scale of the alleged crimes or the substances involved, drug charges can affect several areas of your life, including employment. However, these arrests can often occur on the basis of very little evidence. Recently, a young woman was charged with drug-related offenses after allegedly bringing cocaine into an Illinois jail.

Chicago area rapper enters not guilty plea to marijuana charge

Chief Keef, a Chicago area rapper whose real name is Keith Cozart, reportedly pleaded not guilty on Friday to charges stemming from an arrest last month in Highland Park. According to officers, Cozart's vehicle was stopped after they noticed its registration had expired.

Federal drugs laws to be eased

Chicago readers may have heard that Attorney General Eric Holder recently voiced support for a reduction in sentences for low-level drug offenders charged with federal offenses. Holder’s position essentially calls for loosening the grip on mandatory minimum sentences. This is a major shift in drug policy, but as the Pew Research Center recently pointed out, it is a shift that many states have already made, including the state of Illinois.

Keeping mandatory minimum sentences to a minimum

Federal prosecutors are reportedly seeking additional prison time for a man who pleaded guilty to federal drug charges back in November. Although the case involves drug charges, prosecutors are basing their request for a higher sentence on the man's alleged involvement in several killings.
