Abstract:
For effective prosecution and sentencing of criminal cases, there must be an efficient way to retrieve records on criminal history. Until recently, because of problems with the way criminal histories were reported, North Carolina's criminal justice community probably was more likely to find a defendant's traffic record than to find a record of any felonies. Steps have been taken to correct these inadequacies and to make other improvements in the recordation system. Wilkie examines the problems and possible solutions in maintaining reliable criminal history records.

Before this the law was passed in 1980, North Carolina did not set special punishments for crimes that involved very large amounts of drugs. However, under the drug-trafficking law, the punishment escalates drastically as the amount of the illegal substances increases.
