Fate of federal marijuana law enforcement under Trump administration not clear

Those who have been following the developments in marijuana law in recent years know that there has been somewhat of an uncertain state of affairs with respect to federal drug law enforcement.

Work with experienced criminal defense attorney to address domestic violence charges

As we pointed, out, it is easy for journalists and the public at large to demonize those accused of domestic violence, and the way some commentators try to draw straight lines between domestic violence incidents and mass shootings is evidence of the bias against domestic violence defendants.

Polk County Sex Sting Nets 114 Suspects

Earlier this month, in an undercover sting operation conducted by the Polk County Sheriff's Office, 114 suspects were arrested and charged with a variety of sex crimes.
