Rose McGowan believes charges are meant to silence her

Imagine knowing something horrible about someone but being unable to say anything for fear of repercussions. When you finally do get the nerve to speak out, you coincidentally find yourself the center of a criminal case. That might be what's happening in this case.

Aggravated malicious wounding is a serious charge in any case

As someone accused of malicious wounding, it's vital that you understand exactly what that means. This is a serious allegation that could land you in prison. It is a felony in most cases, and it can ruin your reputation and stain your record.

Virginia Tech professor to be held until trial

A federal judge has denied bond for a former Virginia Tech professor based on a conversation he had in another language with his wife, which is something interesting to talk about. The case revolves around a professor who faces charges for committing wire fraud and making false statements. None of the claims have been substantiated.

Understanding a preliminary hearing

When you're accused of a crime, one of the first things you have to do is have a hearing. While an initial hearing might not do much, it can be an important time in your case. If you potentially have to go to trial, one of the first court appearances you'll go to is a preliminary hearing. This hearing is similar to an arraignment in that the judge hears the defendant's plea. Additionally, the judge can decide at this point if there is enough evidence to move forward with the case. If there is not, then the case may be dismissed at this point. If there is enough evidence, then the next step is a standard trial.

Imprisoned for life as a teen: Inmates fight for second chance

Imagine some of the things you did as a teen. Perhaps some of the things you did were illegal or dangerous. While some people don't get caught, others do.

Several types of defenses exist when you're accused of a crime

If you are accused of a crime, it's of the utmost importance that you have a chance to defend yourself. It's not possible to be convicted of a crime unless the prosecution can show beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed it. Since the burden of proof falls to the prosecution, you may be able to win your case and defend yourself successfully simply by placing doubt in the minds of the judge or jury.

Sending a sext message is a risk no matter your age
