Domestic cases are more contentious than most cases. You are dealing with at least two people whose emotions are polar opposites. This swing in thought had potential energy that is hard to gauge. My personality is strong enough and odd enough that I normally break through this anger and put the other party on notice. My confrontational style is what a lot of people need in domestic situations. Someone who is making decisions and someone who can give his client a rest. McLeod is a perfect fit.
A property crime that describes when a stranger or someone not allowed enters housing or a storage unit of some kind. It is normally to steal items to sell for drug money, but Burglary can be used when the intent was to enter an enclosed area to commit a crime.
Theft of merchandise from a store or place of business. Walmart by far has the highest rate of shoplifting. Or, they are extremely effective in catching people stealing. Kroger is the king of fraud in that their check system really does not run to ensure the check has sufficient funds. The credentials Kroger's checks run really just try to verify the existence of a check number
Driving Under the Influence is not a charge having only to do with alcohol, but anything that would alter your state in the government's mind thereby making you unsafe to drive. I've had client charged with marijuana dui's and they normally try to send a drug recognition expert to the field, or the jail, to try to observe the defendant in an effort to make a case against the Defendant. Never let the jail take blood from you. What do you tell them? The jail is filthy and you are not really looking to get a MRSA infection for being falsely arrested.
Drug Case or Narcotic Charge or Drug Crime is a catch all way to say any number of controlled substances as defined nationally. As opposed to stating each drug individually it would not be efficient to search for all drugs as such. So, as a criminal defense attorney you could always search for possession of cocaine or possession of marijuana to have more specific responses. But search for Drugs or Narcotics charge or crime brings the whole series of, per se, illegal drugs into the search.
Gun charges and criminal charges or firearm crimes are punished harshly in the federal system. Handguns, long rifles, silencers, body armor or explosives have long been researched by the United States and Central Government has an idea what can happen. What? What can happen if a few people stray and collect munitiions. The response by the United States is to punish the discharge of an AR-15 and the likes of other "fast" rifles show the punitive and deterrent side the US government wants to make clear. Everyone seems concerned about the government going against their second amendment rights, but the gunlaws in federal court are in and of themselves, heavy handed. No parole and you serve 85% of whatever you are finally sentenced to serve.
Marijuana, possession of marijuana and selling marijuana is quickly becoming lopside in regards to criminal defense. Criminal Defense Attorneys dealing with this situation have a difficult time reconciling that what is legal and not punished a few states away can lead to really long prison sentence in Kentucky. During President Obama's time in office he promulgated in edict to the U.S. Attorney around the United States. The feds would not touch anything marijuana transactions under 2900 pounds, unless a cartel was handling it or if someone is getting strong armed by a neighbor.
Murder is dialed up this year and many seasoned officers, 20 years or more, have decided to not go for the 27, but instead to retired. Criminal Defense Attorneys are now presented with a whole new set of detectives brought off the streets from patrol units where they needed more time. I cannot believe how jacked things are right now.
Firearm charges, robbery cases, murder crimes usually have one common element. The gun is the common element. I could have left it out, but instead, they deem the gun to be the perfect "interstate commerce tool." That is what is necessary from hi
