Defending against white-collar crime allegations

For the most part, we have good intentions when we carry out various acts in our lives. Whether it is at home, school, work or in the general public, we seek to do well onto others. However, some things are carried out with bad-faith, often seeking to selfishly benefit him or herself. While these acts could simply mean a person is dishonest or willfully acted deceitful, they could also mean that he or she committed a crime.

What is insider trading?

We all hear that investing is a good idea. And when it comes to trading stocks, one often thinks of the investments they could make by taking these steps. However, buying and selling stock can be complex and confusing for some, fearing that they might be the next one facing criminal liabilities for doing the wrong thing or taking tips from others. But one should note that when it comes to insider trading, this is considered both legal and illegal depending on the situation.

Baton Rouge's pretrial diversion program

Facing criminal charges does not always mean going to trial to avoid serious penalties. For those facing certain charges, such as drug crimes, without a criminal history, it is possible to go through a pretrial program to avoid the criminal consequences that could follow if conviction occurs. Those facing drug charges could enter a drug diversion program, helping them to recover from addiction and avoid the penalties that could follow a conviction.

Things to know before you submit to a Breathalyzer test

If you were driving home after a night on the town with friends and a police officer stopped you on suspicion of intoxication, you might not be the least bit worried if you knew you only had imbibed a single alcoholic beverage. In fact, if you enjoyed your beverage early in the evening then spent the next several hours eating, drinking water and perhaps, coffee, and simply hanging out and having a good time, you'd likely be even less concerned about a minor traffic stop.

Georgia fugitive arrested in Louisiana for drug crimes

Being suspected of a crime does not always mean that a person will be arrested and charged for that crime. However, if a person knows that they are suspect and seeks to evade the police, whether they believe they are innocent or not, this makes them a fugitive. This means that a suspected offender is apprehended in a state other than the state where the supposed crime occurred. And if a fugitive is arrested for another crime, this means facing charges related to the original arrest warrant as well as the charges for the current arrest.
