The basics of the appeals process

If you have been convicted of a crime, you have the right to appeal the conviction if you think that a legal error occurred during your conviction process. By filing an appeal, you are requesting that a higher court take jurisdiction of the case and examine the trial proceedings to determine if there were any legal errors that may have affected your conviction or your sentence.

Judge's sentence in drug crime: Focus on future instead of prison

It was a stupid move. She knows it, and basically admitted to it in court. But then, a young woman in love does stupid things. Anyone who has been young and in love can remember a decision or two that makes them cringe in retrospect. Unfortunately, this young woman's decision could have cost her decades behind bars.

Can a Facebook post lead to criminal charges? One court says yes.

A case out of Pennsylvania is bringing attention to the slippery slope of freedom of speech and terroristic threats. The case begins with a man who was charged with fleeing law enforcement. During the investigation for this crime, police uncovered a posting on Facebook that included what they claimed were terroristic threats. The posting is of a rap video written and performed by the accused. The song includes names of officers set to testify against the accused and includes threatening statements.

Remain silent! It is your right.

Anyone who has watched a "cop show" on TV has heard them use the phrase "you have the right to remain silent." This is actually part of your Miranda rights that police are legally obligated to advise you of, if you are being arrested or formally questioned. This warning gives you the warning that anything you say may be used by prosecutors in the case against you. But many people wonder, do I really need to stay quiet? The answer to that is yes, you should not talk to police. It is in your best interest to exercise your right and talk to an attorney first.
