Study: far more Americans are arrested before 23 than in the 60s

"It's really damaging ... putting handcuffs on a child at 12, 13 or 14 years old," the head of a gang diversion program told reporters. "Even for something like jumping a turnstile, those acts have ripple effects that can be catastrophic."

Survey finds long sentences handed down for cybercrime in 2013

It’s a fair reminder: as a writer for the E-Commerce Times’ Technology Law Corner reported recently, hefty sentences are being ordered for those convicted of Internet offenses, although the public may not realize that fact. As the writer said, the press is very active whenever a deft hacker is caught, an online drug sales operation is revealed, or a massive data breach is reported. Some reporters will follow these stories to trial, but few go as far as to cover the sentencing hearing.

If suspected of a crime, avoid taking 'selfies'

Tween girls post photos of themselves on Facebook every time they're doing, well, anything. Your co-worker posts a new picture of himself on Instagram every time he's at the gym. Love them or hate them, "selfies" are everywhere. Generally, they're harmless, albeit mildly annoying. A recent situation in Oakland, however, shows that sometimes selfies can get you into trouble.

The American Bar Association and several law schools focusing on national security issues brought together a panel of high-level intelligence and law enforcement officials for a discussion in the fall. This was the 23rd Annual Review of the Field of National Security Law and, as a senior writer for the ABA Journal wrote, we ignore the nexus of national security issues and cybercrime at our peril.
