Is bail too expensive?

Bail is a common way to make sure that people accused of crimes will show up in court when it's time for a hearing. In essence, it is a security payment that grants an accused individual the ability to live a normal life until future court dates. Those who do not pay bail sometimes wait for trial in jail.

What is involved in a bribery charge?

Bribery is a term that most people associate with politicians and others in government. For example, giving or receiving money or a gift in return for a government contract or some other lucrative deal is an example of bribery. However, it can involve anything of value, including a vote on legislation. Both the person offering the bribe and the one receiving it can face bribery charges.

Police: Drug-related items found in Ohio child porn raid

In a raid conducted to seize suspected child pornography in a Bellevue, Ohio, home late last month, law enforcement agents say that they discovered and seized a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. That was in addition to computers, DVDs, USB drives and hard drives believed to contain pornographic images.

Understanding your right to due process

If you have been accused of a crime, it can be hard to tell exactly how far your rights extend and when they are being violated. That's because more people are not trained lawyers, and very few people without legal training encounter law enforcement on a consistent enough basis to truly understand what they should be able to expect and how to protect themselves. By going into any interaction with law enforcement with a clear understanding of a few basic concepts, though, you can navigate the situation more carefully. Understanding due process also means understanding how and when you can access legal advice, and when you should ask for it.

Assault charges can vary significantly

When you're in the midst of a physical altercation with someone, you're likely not thinking about what specific laws you may be violating. Whether you were defending yourself, taking on someone who made a pass at your girlfriend or have had enough as a guy at the bar is disparaging your beloved Cavs, you could find yourself facing an assault charge. Some assaults are misdemeanor crimes, while others are felonies.
