SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

July 2016 Archives

What you need to know about weapons charges and convictions

Most Americans are aware that the Constitution of the United States gives its citizens the right to bear arms. However, what many Americans do not realize is that the states can regulate exactly what that mean. Hence, in New York, many times there are convictions for carrying firearms, often caused by people simply being unaware of the particular state laws regarding firearms. While sometimes this is done unwittingly, others purposefully try to circumvent the statutes. Whatever the case may be, if you find that you have been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, you need a defense attorney who is knowledgeable in gun control laws.

"But I don't have drugs!" 2 examples of false positive drug tests

Getting stopped by police can be a stressful event, even when you have absolutely no reason to worry. You have not committed a crime and you were going the speed limit. Yet, when those flashing lights appear in your rear view mirror your heart rate may pick up.

Media bias in high-profile criminal trials: Part II

In our last post, we began a discussion about the 1954 murder trial of a man named Sam Sheppard.

Police also refused to believe his account of being knocked out and waking up to see an intruder fleeing his home.

It has been 3 years since the major ruling on stop and frisk

In our last post, we wrote about a June Supreme Court ruling that gives police greater powers to conduct unwarranted searches of suspects. Let's say that an officer stops someone without reasonable suspicion of criminal activity, demands ID and then runs a background check on that person. The background check reveals an outstanding arrest warrant for something minor like a traffic infraction. The officer uses this as a justification for searching the suspect.

Supreme Court ruling further erodes search & seizure protections

It is estimated that about 1.2 million people in New York City have outstanding arrest warrants. While this number is probably higher than in most cities, the problem of outstanding warrants is common. Most are related to minor infractions like unpaid parking tickets, so enforcing them is a rather low priority for police departments most of the time.
