Judge admits mistake during trial

Nebraska residents who are charged with criminal offenses and who must go through trials should be able to trust that they will be treated fairly and all procedures will be properly followed. This should be part and parcel of knowing that a person is always due a fair defense and assumed innocent until proven guilty.

Can you get a job with a criminal record?

If you are one of the many people in Nebraska who has ever been arrested or even convicted of a crime, you understandably may be concerned about your chances of getting a job or a new job if you have one now. While a criminal record may hinder a job search in some situations, it does not always have to.

Understanding criminal terminology

If you have been arrested for any type of offense in Nebraska, one of the things you may want to understand better are some of the terms used and exactly what they mean. Legal and criminal jargon can often be confusing for some people to understand, especially if you have never dealt with law enforcement or with the criminal justice system before.

Conspiracy and drug possession charges levied

Nebraska residents who are arrested and charged with serious drug offenses often find the experience confusing and even scary even if they have been arrested before. The process can seem to come out of nowhere and people have good reason to wonder what will happen to them and how or if they will be able to get a proper defense. Today, there are many defendants who may be wondering just these types of things.

Many acquitted of felony assault charge

Nebraska residents who find themselves facing serious criminal offenses may be unsure of what to do and where to turn. One of the first things people in this situation must do is try to remember that they are guaranteed a defense by law. The right to defend oneself against criminal allegations is a very basic one and offers an opportunity for people to clear themselves of what may otherwise be very serious charges and related penalties.
