Missouri officers say suicide claim probably assault and murder

The families of two students from a Missouri university have been left shocked and grief-stricken in the aftermath of a horrific tragedy. One of the two students is now dead, and the other is being accused of possible assault and murder in the incident. That student, a female, denies that she had anything to do with her boyfriend's death, stating that he committed suicide.

Missouri law harsh toward those convicted of possession of drugs

There are various possible outcomes for those convicted of drug-related crimes in Missouri. A person convicted of possession of drugs may be sentenced to prison, penalized with substantial monetary fines and/or forced to forfeit any number of personal assets. It is typically beneficial to retain legal assistance in such matters so that an experienced attorney can act on your behalf in court.

Missouri man accused of attempted rape

In some situations, such panic can distort a person's perception of reality, making it difficult to adequately describe and identify an alleged perpetrator. However, one man in Missouri has been accused of attempted rape after a woman claims someone broke into her house.

What types of defenses are available when charged with robbery?

When you have been charged with a robbery crime in Missouri, it is crucial that you be aware of your legal rights.

After all, your life is on the line.

Violation of rights often a criminal defense issue

Missouri officers arrest numerous individuals every single day. Police officers have a duty to protect and serve their public, and most do their utmost to achieve those goals. However, some may take things too far and fail to protect the rights of alleged suspects. Any person who is accused of a crime has the right, as part of one's criminal defense, to question whether his or her rights have been violated at any point during the process. But how does one know if any legal rights have actually been violated?
