Theft charges prompt a need for criminal defense in Illinois

Sometimes packages arriving by delivery are delayed for various reasons. In a recent situation in Illinois, before a recipient took possession of an arriving package, it was stolen from the homeowner's front porch. Two people were accused of taking the package and are likely now focused on preparing a criminal defense as they face charges for theft.  

Man in Illinois facing criminal defense issues in several states

Police say they think a man in Illinois has been acting as a con artist for decades. The man was recently charged with theft by deception in this state. However, it seems there are several warrants out for his arrest related to alleged incidents in other states. The type of criminal defense a person presents often bears significant impact on the ultimate outcome of a particular situation.

Defendants are guaranteed opportunity for criminal defense

A situation is unfolding that involves an alleged string of incidents in Illinois and a neighboring state. Two men have been arrested and are now in need of criminal defense support. Officials are reportedly seeking federal charges even though the men are already charged with state crimes.  

Two Illinois men in need of criminal defense

Many Illinois residents can relate to situations where things do not go as planned. For instance, someone might need to be at work by a certain time but is late due to heavy traffic. For two men who were recently spending a day together, a surprise visit from police led to a drastic change in their plans. Each of the men is now in need of criminal defense because they both have been arrested.

E-cigarettes: Avoid criminal defense problems by knowing laws

Vaping is a rising trend in Illinois and throughout the United States. The main device used to participate in a vaping experience is an e-cigarette, an electronic device that vaporizes nicotine to simulate smoking a cigarette. There are numerous vaping device manufacturers and merchants throughout the nation that sell these products both in brick and mortar stores and online. Because there has been quite a bit of controversy associated with e-cigarettes, especially regarding teenagers using such products, those who manufacture or play a role in the consumer supply chain must be aware of applicable laws and regulations to avoid legal trouble that might necessitate a criminal defense.

Illinois man facing criminal defense issues re high-speed driving

Facing conviction for a misdemeanor in Illinois or elsewhere can have immediate and long-lasting negative consequences in a person's life. In most states, a class A misdemeanor is the most serious classification of misdemeanor crimes, usually punishable under conviction by up to a full year in jail. Substantial fines are also often included in sentencing. A man who was recently traveling in Cedar Lake is likely preparing his criminal defense regarding a particular incident that resulted in a class A misdemeanor charge.  

Criminal defense may hinge on events prior to arrest

No Illinois motorist wants to think about getting pulled over on the way home from work or after a night out with friends. Many people stop off to have a beer during their travels and that can surely complicate matters if a police officer detects the smell of alcohol on a person's breath. If he or she uses a breath test device to confirm a suspicion, the person driving may wind up needing a strong criminal defense.
