Reasons for driving license revocation

Serious offenses on and off the road may result in the suspension of your driving license. Repeating these violations several times may lead to revocation. If your driving license gets revoked, you cannot drive a vehicle for a specific time period. After this period, though, you can apply for a new license. However, your application might still be denied by the state because of your previous offenses. The reasons for revocation of your license can be both driving and non-driving related.

Embezzlement types and warning signs

Embezzlement is the withholding and conversion of assets by a person who has been trusted by the organization.

Businesses who feel money is being embezzled might want to stay vigilant. Employees may embezzle money using several different techniques.

First-degree murder is possibly the worst offense you can be accused of and leads to severe punishment if the jury finds you guilty. The exact sentence varies by state, as some states allow the death penalty while others do not. In almost all cases, the felon will have to spend life in prison, with little chance of parole. Defending clients against accusations of first-degree murder is complicated. There are several defenses that attorneys consider when handling such cases.

Accused of money laundering?

Criminals often want to make it look like they are earning money through a legitimate business. They conceal the actual source of their money and keep investing it in their own legal business to turn their money white. The term associated with money laundering is racketeering, which describes organized crime, drug trafficking or any other criminal activity that is a source of black money.
