New Jersey seeks to crack down on unemployment fraud

When we use the term white collar crime, we are generally referring to financial crimes that involves cheating or swindling money away from another person or entity through deceitful means. Unfortunately the phrase white collar crime can sometimes lead people to think that they need not worry about the legal area, but the truth is that you do not necessarily have to have a white collar job in order to be facing accusations of white collar crime.

The right defense may prevent drunk driving convictions

If you are accused of driving while intoxicated, it is imperative that you seek legal action immediately. In an ideal world, you would speak with an attorney before you even speak with the police, but many people are not aware of this, and they do not take advantage of their right to remain silent. If you are accused of any crime, including DUI, you do not have to say or do anything that may be used against you, and you have the right to speak with an attorney.

New Jersey motorist arrested on drug charges

There is no such thing as a light criminal charge; every criminal charge should be treated with the utmost severity and importance. However, this does not mean that some criminal charges are more serious than others, and certain drug charges are amongst the most serious criminal convictions, often leading to years of jail time and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. The severity of these charges can change based on the type of drug and the quantity of the drug or drugs involved in your charges as well as many other factors.

Helping juveniles take advantage of their legal rights

It is most common to think of adults when one thinks of criminal charges and those most likely to be facing them. Generally speaking, we attach the faces of young adults or middle-aged individuals to the reports of domestic violence or drug charges, but it is very possible for younger individuals to face these charges as well. The law may treat these younger suspects slightly differently, but age does not omit you from being a potential suspect in a criminal case.

What is the legal BAC limit in New Jersey?

When you are pulled over by a law enforcement officer, they may ask you to submit to a field sobriety test if they suspect that you may be intoxicated.

One way is a standard DWI conviction, and the other is known as DWI "Per Se."

New Jersey police recently took action following a two-month long investigation, resulting in the raid of an apartment in which six people were arrested, and multiple assets were seized.

Overall, police seized 707 bricks of heroin, nearly $17,000 in cash, an additional 300 grams in powdered heroin and more.

Important legal defense from white collar crime accusations

White collar crimes are serious accusations, and they should be treated as such by those who are accused of them. In an ideal world, simply being innocent would be enough to avoid concern about criminal accusations, but unfortunately courts can only make the best decisions based on the information presented to them. If your accuser presents a strong enough case against you, being innocent of the crime may not be enough to prevent you from being convicted.

Domestic violence is not only physical

There are multiple types of domestic violence, but the definition of domestic violence remains constant regardless of the specific allegations. Most people think of domestic abuse as one party physically harming the other party in a relationship, but this is not the only type of domestic violence that can occur. Understanding these different types of abuse can help you avoid being wrongfully accused or convicted.
