Be Responsible This Halloween

Be Responsible This Halloween

I

t’s that time of the year again, and people are busily preparing for what custumes to wear this Halloween. Kids are plotting out the best route to get them as much candy as possible, while adults are figuring out which party to go to. However, something else adults should be considering, is who will be driving to the party.

They have to do this because drinking and driving is never a good idea on any day of the year. On Halloween, it is an even worse idea.

On Halloween, kids are out and about trick or treating. This usually continues after the sun goes down...

Can You Refuse A Breathalyzer?

Can You Refuse A Breathalyzer?

With all of the driving that people do every single day, it can be easy for everyone to forget that driving is a privilege, not a right. As such, there are all sorts of things that a driver has to do in order to retain their privilege of having a driver’s license. Most of these things are pretty obvious, such as following driving laws.

Despite the obvious things that people have to do, there is one thing that some people don’t realize they agreed to the moment they got their license. This task would be agreeing to take a breathalyzer test whenever an officer asks.

California Vehicle Code 23612

While people are right in assuming that tests can only be performed on them if they give their consent, they fail to realize that they already gave their consent for a breathalyzer test...

Are Nanny Cams Legal In California?

Typically, people try to get trusted friends or family members to look after their children, but that isn’t an option for everyone.

Bailing Out A Loved Can Be Easy

Bailing a friend or family member out of jail is not something that people do for fun. Due to this fact, many people do not know much about how bail works. All they know is what they’ve seen it on TV. Sadly, television shows don’t give a very accurate representation of how the system works. It rarely is as simple as taking a few hundred dollars down to the police station where the person is being held.

Is Shoplifting A Felony?

Is Shoplifting A Felony?

If you know someone who recently got into trouble for shoplifting, you are probably very concerned about him or her. You wonder how much trouble a person can get into for shoplifting. How serious of an offense is it to steal something from a store or other place of business?

Well, the answer to that depends on what was stolen. If the item was something small or inexpensive, then the offense won’t be too serious. However, if something large or multiple things that have a combined total of more than $950, then things will be more serious.

This is because most people do not steal things that are worth more than $950. If a person steals anything that has a combined total less than that, then they will only face a misdemeanor charge.

Getting Arrested In A Foreign Country

Getting Arrested In A Foreign Country

No one ever wants to get arrested. Doing so means being placed into a small concrete cell with iron bars, possibly with other inmates. A person loses their freedom when arrested, and it is not fun at all. However, something most people do not consider, is what happens if they are arrested outside of the United States.

  • Innocent until proven guilty

  • Safety from cruel and unusual punishment
