Recidivism shows some problems with the criminal justice system

The criminal justice system in the United States is broken in some ways. One of these ways is that it does little to help people rehabilitate as part of their sentence and focuses on punishment instead. This increases the chance that the person will reoffend and end up right back in the criminal justice system.

Felony charges must be handled with a balanced defense

Addressing felony charges is difficult. You have to think about the options that you have for your defense but you also have to consider what each option means for your future. Being convicted of a felony means that you will have some life impacts from it. Taking all of this into consideration can help you to form a defense that address the points you need it to.

Treat felony charges as very serious matters

Nobody comes into their adult years with the goal of becoming a felon. Unfortunately, many adults will find themselves facing these very serious criminal charges. If you are in this situation, you need to take the initiative to find out what defense options you have so that you can move forward with a plan.

Tax season is here: Remember that honesty is imperative

Income tax season is almost here, which means that now is the time to get your financial information together to file. It is also a good time for a reminder that doing your taxes requires that you are fully honest. This isn't something that you can fib on in any degree. If you do include untruths on your filings, you are facing the prospect of being charged with a crime.

Plan for a jury trial even if you don't think you will have one

Being charged with a crime means that your future is in someone else's hands. If you go before a jury for a trial, your fate is in the hands of the men and women who are on it. This can be something difficult to think about, but you have to plan your defense based on the possibility that you will have to rely on this jury of your peers.
