DUI expungement laws in the U.S.

Having a criminal record can have a long lasting effect on your future. Job and college applications might be affected by a record as well. Drunk driving records are common in the United States, but it is possible to get an expungement to protect your record and image. Although expungement laws may vary from one state to another, they usually have certain terms that must be fulfilled by the defendant.

Understanding embezzlement and its warning signs

Anyone involved in the conversion of organizational assets into personal assets can be charged with embezzlement. In most cases, the person involved in embezzlement has control of the finances of the organization. It is a type of theft, but several laws have been made to deal with it separately. Defendants may face severe consequences if found guilty of embezzlement.

Minors charged with possession

A minor found in possession of alcohol or drugs, regardless of whether they had consumed the substance or not, can be charged with violation of MIP laws. Minor in Possession laws were created by state governments to educate minors of the dangers of drinking and driving, involve minors in community service and help them get medical help or therapy for a dependency problem.

Different types of misdemeanor charges

The United States law has divided criminal charges into different types in order to make sure people face sentencing according to their crimes. A misdemeanor is one of these charges, and it is less serious than a felony, but more serious than an infraction. Misdemeanors have been divided into three major parts; petty misdemeanors, ordinary misdemeanors and gross misdemeanors. Petty misdemeanors are minor cases, while gross misdemeanors are relatively serious and might result in jail time as well.
