For many business professionals, the temptation to bribe colleagues and bosses proves apparent. Hoping to receive more compensation, authority or special treatment for specific job promotions constitutes a legal criminal action in many respects.
Law enforcement officers have difficult jobs. Often, they are tasked to deal with dangerous criminals and frequently face public criticism. Unfortunately, a Missouri sheriff and a deputy now face criminal charges, including assault.
It may be difficult to accurately estimate the number people who been saved from serious injuries or from losing their lives due to the use of safety belts. Though many people in Missouri benefit from these safety devices, they are only effective if a driver or passenger chooses to utilize them. Unfortunately, a man in Missouri now faces accusations of drunk driving and other related charges following a crash that left a passenger in his vehicle -- who was not wearing a safety belt -- suffering serious injuries.
When a crime is believed to have been committed, police often want to quickly make an arrest. However, it often takes time to gather sufficient evidence to truly understand what happened and why. Often, when an arrest is quickly made, it happens without a full picture of actual events. For example, there are many unanswered questions following the recent arrest of man in Missouri on assault and arson charges.
The average person in Missouri likely has little experience with the criminal justice system. If an individual is accused of a crime, he or she may unfortunately have little idea how to respond to such accusations. Unfortunately, a man may now be unsure of his legal options after he was recently indicted on embezzlement charges.
