Bond Reductions in Criminal Law

It's 4:00 a.m. and you get a phone call telling you that a loved one has just been arrested.  It's a phone call that no one wants to receive, but people get it every day.  After going to the police station, you find that your loved one is being held on a $250,000 bond.  The most important thing on your mind at this time is not "how do I help my loved one beat this charge."  Instead, you're wondering how to get them out of jail and where you're going to get the money you need to post their bond, which is very common with our criminal law clients.

Criminal Law - Is it Shoplifting or Larceny?

Our office gets criminal law calls regarding shoplifting and larceny cases where people are confused about the difference between Shoplifting and Misdemeanor Larceny. I thought it was important to help people understand the difference between the two and I hope the following will assist you.

The officer didn't read me my rights?

       If you are arrested for a criminal law violation, most people assume that the police have to read you your rights.  If the arresting officer(s) does not read you your rights, it may or may not have an impact on the outcome of your case.   Whether you are read your rights (i.e. given Miranda warnings) or not only becomes an issue in your case if you were in custody and are interrogated.  

Criminal Law: The police want to talk to me.

     As part of our Criminal Law Practice, we receive calls all the time from people that have been contacted by a law enforcement officer that wants to "talk" to them about a criminal investigation.  The investigator will often tell someone that "they just want to get their side of the story."
