Understanding the appeals process

Nebraska residents who have been charged with crimes and who are not satisfied with the outcomes of their first trials or court proceedings may wish to pursue appeals. An appeal essentially gives a defendant another chance to receive a different outcome to his or her case. Understanding a bit about how appeals work is important for anyone wishing to seek a new judicial opinion.

Plea bargains entered in four different drug cases

After being arrested and charged with a crime, Nebraska residents need to understand their options for their defenses. Every situation is unique and there is no one approach that works for everyone but for some defendants, entering into a plea agreement with prosecutors may well be a viable and good option.

Benefit of Nebraska's drug Diversion Program

Have you been arrested for a drug crime in Nebraska? If so, you are not alone as many other people have been and are in the same situation as you. However, that does not take away the uncertainty and perhaps even fear you may feel about your predicament at the moment. While you are working to understand the ins and outs of the criminal justice system, you will have many decisions to make. Among these decisions may be whether or not to enter the state's drug Diversion Program.
