False allegations and men: How to fight back

You made a hard decision to get a divorce, and now you've found out that your wife is accusing you of domestic violence. You never hurt her, but her claims make you out to be controlling and manipulative. It's never a good feeling to find out that someone you love is willing to go so far to discredit you. Fortunately, you can fight back by defending yourself. By proving your innocence, it's the false accuser who loses credibility in court. Here are three ways to fight back against these horrible accusations.

Report: Drug field tests are unreliable

When Texas police are about to make a drug arrest, they "confirm" that the substance they have found is actually an illegal drug with inexpensive test kits. However, a commission that was created to review wrongful convictions in the state determined that these drug field test kits are unreliable and should not be used alone to make drug convictions.

What are possible defenses to domestic violence charges?

If you have been charged with a domestic violence crime, you may be nervous about the possible consequences or penalties if you are convicted. It's important to know that these cases are often overcharged. This means allegations can be heavy, and so can the consequences if you are convicted of the crime. A criminal defense attorney with a background in family law can help guide you to your options, and help show your side of the story to possibly reduce or avoid harsh consequences.

The clown sightings: Sick joke or serious offense?

The 2016 clown panic started in mid-August when residents of Greenville, South Carolina, called police reporting that there were clowns lurking around in the woods outside of town. Since then, more than 100 clown sightings have been reported.

Report: Forensic evidence is often flawed

If you have even seen a TV show or movie depicting crime scene investigators, then you know that all it takes is a footprint in the dirt or a tiny hair to accurately identify a criminal, right? Not quite. It turns out that Hollywood makes forensic evidence seem a lot more foolproof than it actually is.

The conversation that could save your college student's future

If your son or daughter is going off to college this fall, you are probably filled with many different emotions. You are likely astonished at how fast the years have flown by, excited for your son or daughter's future, and a little sad that there will be one less person at the dining table (until the holidays, at least).
