Being accused of committing a crime is a daunting experience.

What You Need To Know About Identity Document Forgery

Copying or modifying identity documents like driver’s licenses and passports is a very common trope in movie and TV thrillers.

In real life, however, identity document forgery is a serious criminal offense. In the eyes of the law, people forging identity documents are no different from those committing different types of theft or any other crime.

Once arrested and convicted, identity document forgers will be at the receiving end of severe penalties and will need a good criminal lawyer to help them avoid those consequences.

Here are several things you need to know about identity document forgery.

Anytime you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, there are routine steps that might help in order to ensure you are financially and legally protected, regardless of who is at fault for the accident itself.

Remain at the Scene of the Accident

Always immediately stop your vehicle and remain at the scene of an accident after it occurs. Avoid leaving the scene for any reason other than immediate medical emergencies. Staying at the scene of an accident is required by law even if you are not at fault.

Contact Local Police

Contact your local police department to request an officer at the scene of your accident. Ensure the other individuals who are also involved in the accident stay near the scene at all times if possible. Be sure to take a photo of the license plate of any other vehicles involved in the accident if anyone decides to leave the scene before the police arrive.

Recurring False Domestic Violence Charges? What Are Your Options?

No one can dispute that domestic violence is a serious crime. Unfortunately, there are plenty of occasions where someone is wrongly accused of domestic violence. Many spouses will resort to false claims of emotional and physical abuse to:

  • Win custody battles
  • Remove their significant other from their lives
  • Get even with a spouse who wants a divorce
  • Gain possession of their domestic partner's property

2011 Assembly Bill 69 - The Castle Doctrine

Is a person's home truly their castle? A great deal of ink has been spread across the media sources lately relative to the Castle Doctrine. There has been a great deal of debate as to whether this bill was necessary. Under current law, an individual is entitled to use deadly force (i.e., force that is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm) when they "reasonably, subjectively and objectively" believe that such force is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm to themselves or a third party.

If an individual is entering a person's home at any time and the person in the home reasonably believes that deadly force is necessary, current law governs this situation. Under the Castle Doctrine, the bill simply creates a presumption for the Court that under certain circumstances, the force was necessary and, therefore, removes the fact-finding issue as to the subjective or objective belief of the individual, if the use of deadly force occurs under certain circumstances.
