What is Leandra's Law?

Most people who drive in New York have probably heard people talk about various laws related to or penalties for drunk driving offenses. It is all but impossible to get through a major holiday time without seeing billboards, signs or more about designated drivers or drunk driving checkpoints. Driving while intoxicated laws in New York can be tough and it is important for residents to understand one particular law that is responsible for many specific consequences of a drunk driving arrest or conviction.

What are the elements of aggravated assault?

There are many ways that an altercation can get out of hand and you could find yourself on the receiving end of aggravated assault charges. These charges often carry stiffer penalties than simple assault charges, and can easily result in significant fines or even lengthy time behind bars.

Accusations against producer extend beyond Hollywood

New York residents who hear reports of people being charged with offenses involving sexual acts or harassment in some form may often not know which side of a story to believe. The reality is that sometimes it is hard to tell what really has happened in a situation, especially if there was a long delay between when some form of sexual offense is said to have transpired and when it is finally revealed. An example of this can be seen in a recent case involving a famous motion picture producer.

Fighting federal bribery charges

Sometimes, the nature of a person's relationship to a public official becomes complicated, and could lead others to question if that relationship is entirely legal. In some cases, dealings between public officials and others may get the attention of law enforcement, and could even lead to bribery charges if the agency investigating the matter believes that it has evidence to support federal bribery charges.

Basics of Ponzi scheme allegations

Investors, entrepreneurs and others in New York who are interested in finding new ways to grow their wealth and pursue new business interests know that sometimes they need to be careful about which ventures they participate in. With fraud being a concern in today's world, accurate records and other documentation is important. So too is an understanding of what types of things may raise a flag to outside persons unnecessarily.

No consensus on Uber preventing drunk driving

Across many New York communities, taking an Uber or Lyft is common practice, despite the fact that these services did not exist even ten years ago. While the ride-sharing services claim to have helped reduce drunk driving rates in the communities they serve, studies disagree on whether or not this is accurate.
