Find defense options for domestic violence charges

Domestic violence accusations are the start of a chain of events that might make your life very difficult. If your spouse or live-in significant other accuses you of domestic violence, you might not even be able to return home. We know that you probably didn't plan for this to happen. You might not have an alternative place to go; however, you must comply with any court orders issued in the case or you risk facing even more legal trouble.

Understand how a crime's classification can impact your life

A crime's classification is a huge consideration in criminal cases. Many people know that there are implications of being convicted of a felony that don't involve the criminal court system. These implications of a felony are known as collateral consequences. These include a host of things that can affect you for the rest of your life, including the time after the court-imposed penalties have been completed.

Addressing underlying causes of crimes is often difficult

Felony charges of any sort can have a big impact on your future. Just last week, we discussed the case of a teacher who is facing drug charges.

In some cases, such as with drug charges, the cause of the case might be more than just someone wanting to commit a crime.

High school teacher faces several charges related to drugs

Teachers are supposed to be the people who children can look up to. These professionals are held to a very high standard when it comes to their conduct. To learn that a teacher is facing criminal charges is rather upsetting to some people. In fact, some people forget that a person who is charged with a crime might not be guilty of the crime. The concept of "innocent until proven guilty" is true in all cases, even when a teacher is involved.

Juveniles can get quickly entangled in social media crimes

In the last decade or so, social media seems like it has become tightly interwoven with modern life -- changing the way people meet, stay in touch, build relationships and fall in love. It's also changed another big factor of life: how crimes get committed.
