When a person is accused of a crime, he or she is often left to make several confusing decisions that will likely have a significant impact on the rest of his or her life. Often, with the guidance of an experienced attorney, the decision to plead guilty is made. In fact, a Missouri woman accused of embezzlement for her former employer has recently done so.
When faced with criminal charges, many people may not know what to do. Some people, upon recognition that there may be enough evidence to convict them, may choose to plead guilty, even if they did not commit the crime. In fact, a woman in Michigan recently pleaded guilty to fraud charges.
Anyone who has driven in rush hour traffic likely knows the frustration of it. However, most people accept that there is little that they can do and so wait relatively patiently. Unfortunately, police have recently accused a Missouri woman of murder due to an incident that allegedly resulted because she was annoyed with traffic.
There are many actions that a driver can take to avoid an accident. Unfortunately, there is often little a person can do when a wrong-way driver is headed in his or her direction. In fact, police reports indicate that a woman in Missouri is suspected of driving the wrong way and causing a collision. However, the woman driving the vehicle the alleged wrong-way driver struck now faces drunk driving charges.
While the justice system serves to act — well, just, it's still subject to the pitfalls of human error as with anything else. If you believe your case was somehow mishandled, you have the right to seek an appeal.
