Think carefully before engaging in an online prank

People who play online games or debate hot topics like politics and religion are aware that the Internet can be a contentious place. It can be easy for Nebraska residents to get sucked into an online argument and forget that real people are behind what one sees on the monitor. While it is one thing to debate opinions in a chat room, some activity that begins online can cross over into the real world and become a crime.

Online arguments might cross the line to a criminal charge

People who spend any amount of time online can agree that the atmosphere may get emotionally charged. Whether defending a political stance, citing an opinion on a parenting video or engaging in a quest with multiple players in an online game, not everyone agrees with everyone else’s way of doing things. It can also be easy for forget that real people are behind the words one reads on the Internet. Therefore, people in Nebraska and elsewhere might not put much thought behind getting even with someone after an online disagreement.

What is Nebraska's stance on marijuana?

If you are a Nebraska resident who enjoys smoking an occasional joint in the privacy of your own home, it is unlikely that you will face legal consequences for doing so. For the most part, what you do in your home is your private business and law enforcement will not interfere with your doing it, such as “busting” you for possession of marijuana. However, as FindLaw points out, possessing even one ounce or less of marijuana is still a misdemeanor in Nebraska. You will face a $300 fine if law enforcement catches you with it outside your home and this is your first offense. You may also have to enroll in a drug prevention class.

What if my employer claims I stole from the company?

This is where McGoughLaw P.C. L.L.O., can help, providing you with information that you can use to defend yourself against unjust accusations in court.
