Where exactly is the line for tax evasion?

If there is one thing that business owners across a wide spectrum of industries can agree on, it is that they all want to pay as little in taxes as legally possible. Reducing a business’ tax burden can leave more money available to invest in the business and to improve its bottom line.

Should you always trust evidence from the crime lab?

If you are charged with a crime and are required to submit to testing so that authorities can collect relevant evidence against you, chances are that it is a crime lab that will analyze the samples you provide. The same could be said for investigations geared towards finding suspects for crimes.

Things to consider before answering questions for the police

If you have ever been asked by the police to answer questions in the investigation of a crime, you may think that talking to investigators will be okay.

Because cell phones, laptops and tablets are ubiquitous within our society, many criminal investigations involve the seizure and search of electronic devices. In some cases, the right to canvass private devices for information is obvious, but in others, law enforcement may overstep their bounds. In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court court ruled unanimously in Riley v. California that law enforcement officers must obtain a search warrant before combing through a suspect’s cell phone for information to link him (or her) to a crime.
