While there is a risk of being involved in a car accident at any time of day or night, the lack of visibility experienced at night can be especially difficult for some drivers. Unfortunately, police may be quick to make assumptions about the cause of an accident that occurs during the early morning hours, concluding that alcohol or drugs were involved rather than a simple driver error. In fact, a man in Missouri was arrested for DWI following a recent crash.
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.
The internet has revolutionized the way people conduct business and maintain relationships. Often, it allows people who are hundreds of miles apart an opportunity to connect with others in a way that they would never be able to without the internet and social media. However, it also leaves people vulnerable to certain allegations. In fact, a man has recently been indicted on federal fraud charges in Missouri.
When people in Missouri work at jobs that require them to handle money, they likely want certain safeguards in place to prevent them from facing accusations of misdeeds in the event that money should go missing. Unfortunately, there are a variety of different reasons why money might appear to go missing, including simple errors that are not related to a crime. Despite this, a retired city clerk now faces accusations of embezzlement.
Many people in this country are required by law to pay taxes on their income, personal property and individual purchases, often both at the federal, state and local levels. Some people may question how their tax payments are actually used. Unfortunately, officials in one Missouri county claim that a county tax collector was stealing payments. She has recently pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the embezzlement accusations.
Many organizations -- regardless of their overall purpose -- often have processes in place that require oversight on any expenditures made. These measures are primarily in place to protect the organization's finances but could also ultimately protect an employee who handles the money from accusations of wrongdoing. Unfortunately, a secretary at a church in Missouri now faces accusations of theft from the church she served.
There are multiple different organizations in Missouri and across the country dedicated to helping. Each organization has different goals, with some focused on helping animals. Unfortunately, a dog rescue now claims that it was the victim of theft.
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.
Making investments inherently carries a certain degree of risk. While a person could potentially make a great deal of profit, he or she could also lose everything. Unfortunately, federal officials claim that a man in Missouri defrauded people that he convinced to invest in his company. He now faces accusations of white collar crimes.
