Criminal charges have far-reaching consequences for the accused

Being accused of a crime is a pivotal moment in any person's life. A criminal charge can have a wide range of effects that last a very long time. There are the legal consequences of a criminal charge, such as the jail time associated with the crime, the fines associated with the charge, and probation -- just to name a few. 

N-Dex database being rolled out to police in Minneapolis

Police in Minneapolis are poised to have more information to help them solve crimes. Among other things, the N-Dex database, created and used by the FBI, will make it easier for law enforcement officers to quickly get information about criminals across state lines. That can lead to a suspect being apprehended before they have a chance to commit another crime, which makes the database access very valuable to them.

Take action if your child is charged with shoplifting

If your child has been accused of shoplifting, it is important to take action to get them good legal representation right away. While in some cases it may make sense to reach a deal or agreement, the charge can also be challenged. There are ways to fight against a shoplifting charge, but it's harder to do on your own. You need an attorney who knows the law in that area, and who will use all the proper defenses to the charge.

Understanding the reasons behind some fraud

Just as there are many forms the crime of fraud can take, there are many reasons a person might find they are accused of committing fraud. Because everyone's situation is different, understanding those reasons is an important first step in deciding the best way to proceed with their defense.

Understanding defenses to accusation of criminal trespass

Though likely not the first thing that comes to mind when you think about criminal charges, the consequences for criminal trespass can be harsh. If you or a loved one has been accused of criminal trespass, you should know that there are defenses you can raise to this charge or accusation.

Clowning Around on Social Media Can Lead to Criminal Charges

It's no secret that today's teens spend a lot of their time interacting on social media. To many, it can feel like they are in their own world, even if part of them understands that much of what they post online can be seen, and even taken seriously, by the general public. Recently, one Minnesota girl seemingly took things too far when she impersonated a scary clown online and attempted to spook her boyfriend. Unfortunately, the threats she made as the clown character reached far beyond her immediate social circle, and many people were far from amused. Now, the 15-year-old girl is facing frightening circumstances of her own-criminal charges.

Local man avoids prison in insurance fraud case

It is an unfortunate reality that not everyone who is criminally prosecuted actually intends to commit a crime. Under certain circumstances it is possible the accused could end up facing criminal consequences because of the position he or she is placed in by others. A man recently represented by attorney Matthew Mankey knows this all too well.

My Thoughts On The Plea Agreement Reached In The Wetterling Case

I am writing this blog about the Wetterling case in response to the many questions I have received following the recent turn of events. In particular, many have expressed their belief that the plea agreement reached with the man-who admitted to abducting, sexually assaulting and killing, 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling, in 1989-is not severe enough.

Court decision erodes individual liberties

It is well-settled law that the remedy for illegally obtained evidence is suppression of that evidence. The bedrock principal of law was cracked significantly by the United States Supreme court on June 20th. Justice Clarence Thomas writing for the majority further eroded citizens' Fourth Amendment rights when the court decided the case of Utah v. Strieff.
