Understanding criminal sexting charges

“Sexting” is a word that had yet to be invented several years ago. Since the practice began, it has evolved into a cultural phenomenon. In addition, it has evolved into a crime under certain circumstances. Not all sexting behaviors are criminal. If you and your spouse wish to sext, you have every right to. Similarly, if you are an adult, you may generally sext any other consensual adult who has the mental capacity to consent.

Understanding the basics of cyberstalking charges

We live in a world that is increasingly interconnected via various means of electronic communication. Chances are that you email, text, post on social media sites or otherwise communicate with others via electronic devices on a regular basis. It is important to maintain a certain sense of etiquette and restraint when communicating electronically. Failure to do so could result in you being charged with cyberstalking, even for offenses that seem completely legal at first glance.

Supreme Court rules in favor of privacy for arrestees

This highly-anticipated ruling insists that law enforcement officials must obtain a warrant before searching the cellphones of individuals who have been arrested.

Preventing minors from giving false confessions

The criminal justice system in the United States takes an inconsistent approach when dealing with juvenile offenders. In some cases, juveniles are correctly treated as less mature and therefore less culpable than adults. As such, their sentences seek more to reform and rehabilitate than to punish. In other cases, juveniles who have committed very serious crimes are charged as adults, even though they are not yet considered mature enough to vote or to serve on a jury.
