How to avoid making critical mistakes on Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is a time for people to celebrate love. Indeed, love comes in many forms, but for high school and college age students, love is often confused (or used) to obtain sex. This could have disastrous results for people who misinterpret a person’s intentions. Besides the heartbreak that can come from advances or feelings not being reciprocated, criminal charges can come about for those who take things too far.

More men suing colleges after suspensions sex crime allegations

As we have noted in a number of our posts, those accused of sex crimes, particularly men, are treated as if they have already been convicted of such crimes.

However, the job market can still tenuous for those who work minimum wage jobs. When employees are on this end of the spectrum, they tend to worry more about keeping their jobs.

The unseen dangers of a criminal conviction

The right to representation in criminal matters is one of the bedrock principles of our legal process. This is primarily based on the deprival of one’s freedom in the event of a criminal conviction.

Parents and teens should talk about 'sexting.'

As a new school year begins, parents of students going into high school are likely concerned about the new friends their children will be making, how their hormones may guide them into questionable decisions, and whether the “puppy love” relationships they forge will change their lives.

Are former sex offenders still being driven away?

It is well known that under Michigan law, registered sex offenders are barred from living near school safety zones. The notion behind the state’s law is to prevent sex offenders from living in close proximity to children, and to limit the exposure of children to suspected pedophiles since they tend to like playgrounds and other areas where kids play.

Mistrial determined in Cosby sex assault case

The latest high-profile sex crime case that captured national attention has now ended. The criminal case involving longtime comedian Bill Cosby has ended in a mistrial. The ruling leaves him without an acquittal and potentially sets the stage for prosecutors to try the case once again.

How an evaluation can help your case

In some sex crime cases, harsh sentences can be avoided by proving that the accused is not a specific and continual threat to be a repeat offender.  Indeed, most defendants would say this to avoid jail time. However, showing this in a court of law may be a completely different exercise.
