Social media and online harassment

With the advent of social media, people have been able to take advantage of a number of benefits that were not previously available. For example, it has never been easier for family members and friends from across the world to stay in touch, or to meet new people online. Sharing content with a global audience has also become much easier and many people enjoy the benefits of social networking platforms, blogs, video hosting sites, and so on. However, problems related to these sites also arise from time to time, and those facing charges of online harassment may find themselves in a difficult position.

False allegations of unlawful pornography

In the digital era, a wide variety of offenses can upend the lives of internet users. Some involve harassment and terrorism, while others may consist of copyright infringement, theft, and fraud. However, some internet crime charges have to do with pornography and these allegations can carry harsh consequences. Someone who is facing accusations of possessing or distributing illegal pornography may feel as if their entire life has been upended, even if they are innocent. If you are stressed out about untrue claims involving illegal pornography, it is pivotal to immediately go over your options and strive to have the truth come out.

White collar crime charges and your career

Being charged with a white collar crime can be incredibly overwhelming, whether you are accused of insider trading, fraud, or an internet offense. In some instances, people who are accused of these types of crimes believe that the consequences of these charges pale in comparison to offenses they believe are more serious, such as those which involve violence. However, it must be noted that white collar offenses can be incredibly damaging for those who are dealing with allegations and may impact their future in other ways as well. For example, their career could be upended due to their record and stigma.

The White Collar Paradox

White collar crime has become a paradox in the interconnected world we live in today. On the one hand, the ways and means to inadvertently slide into many white collar scenarios have increased exponentially. On the other, penalties for those charged with a white-collar crime have been on the increase.

Handling false allegations of cyberbullying

In the digital era, people may find themselves accused of a number of offenses involving the internet, such as cyberbullying. Some people may not think that cyberbullying is very serious or that these charges carry harsh repercussions, but cyberbullying accusations can virtually destroy someone's life in a variety of ways. Not only do people accused of this offense often face harsh criticism and damage to their reputation that may be permanent, but they may even spend time behind bars. Worse, some people are falsely accused of cyberbullying altogether, leaving them completely unsure of what to do next.

Can drug charges affect student loans?

If you are accused of a drug-related offense and have no idea what to do next, it is especially important to review any unique aspects of your case or personal circumstances.
