Man sues after being coerced into a false confession

We see it in movies and police dramas all the time: someone confessing to a crime they did not commit in order to protect someone they care about. But while many people believe that no one would ever risk a false confession for someone else's sake, a case out of another state is proving that it does happen in real life sometimes.

The consequences that come with juvenile crimes

As a parent, you have probably spent most of your child's life trying to teach them right from wrong. Sometimes this has been easy while at other times it has been difficult. The latter of the two is most true for parents when they try to explain the legal consequences of some actions. Many parents are unfamiliar with the intricacies of the law and may not be able to effectively teach their children about the seriousness of their actions.

There is no statute of limitations on murder

Some of you may have heard the term statute of limitations used in reference to personal injury cases but did you know that there are criminal statutes of limitations as well? Much like tort law statutes of limitations, which put a time limit on when compensation can be sought from a negligent party, criminal statutes of limitations prevent prosecutors from charging someone with a crime after a specified number of years have passed.

Why is the drinking age 21?

When it comes to drinking alcohol, there are a few laws that just about everyone knows, even if they are not old enough to do so. The first is that if your blood-alcohol level is 0.08 percent or higher, you can get arrested and charged with drunk driving. The second is that you must be 21 years of age or older to consume alcohol in the United States. And third, many states, including California, have zero-tolerance laws that can lead to serious penalties for anyone caught drinking alcohol under the legal drinking age.
