How YOU Can Make an impactful Change

Over the last couple of weeks I have thought a lot about George Floyd and the impact that his senseless death has had upon our Nation.  As I watched video footage and news reports of the rallies and marches, one question kept running through my mind– what are these people actually accomplishing?  The more that I thought about this, the more irritated I became. There are so many people quick to go stand on a corner with a sign or post something on social media about needing change, but yet totally apathetic when it actually comes to doing something that would make a huge impact on how the criminal justice system treats people of color– showing up for jury duty.

Driving While Intoxicated! What Shall I Do Now?

  At some point, many of us have had a sip of wine – during the holidays, after work, with our meals, etc.  Actually, numerous individuals in the Bible indulge in the occasional appreciation of wine.  In fact, Jesus’ first miracle entailed turning water into wine to celebrate a wedding (John 2:3-11).  There is nothing wrong with drinking alcohol if done responsibly.  However, teenagers should not partake in this pleasure because it is against the law.  "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established." (Romans 13:1).  Those that disobey the law are also disobeying God.  Again, there is nothing wrong with indulging in the pleasures of alcohol.  On the [...]

Sex Crimes:  Really, I Am Innocent!

Sex crimes include, but are not limited to, rape, child molestation, sexual battery, lewd conduct, possession and distribution of child pornography, and prostitution.  A conviction for a felony sex crime can negatively affect an individual for a lifetime.  In fact, if convicted of a sex crime, an individual is required to register as a sex offender.  Consequently, this may affect one’s residency.  Specifically, some towns and cities forbid registered sex offenders from residing in certain areas.  Moreover, your name and offense will be made available online to the public, and potential job prospects may be limited.  If you have been charged with a sex crime, it is imperative that you notify a criminal defense attorney, immediately.  Occasionally, sex crimes can [...]

Help! The Marijuana Is Not Mine!

A large percentage of court cases pertain to the possession of controlled substances.  In fact, police officers arrest more people for drug possession than for any other crime, including violent crimes.  Moreover, thousands of people are arrested for possessing small amounts of controlled substances either found on their person or in their vehicles.  Routinely, these individuals receive convictions.  However, it is possible to defeat these drug possession charges and obtain more favorable results.    Consider the following case.  Kaylee is a 16-year-old junior in high school.  Recently, she received her driver’s license and her mother’s used but flawless, shiny, red Toyota Camry.  Kaylee is excited about having her license and her own transportation, which means that she no longer has [...]

“Grandma, Grandpa, is that you on the news…?”

What are they thinking?  Why would they risk their lives and freedom for the mere pleasures that the selling of narcotics may bring?  Do they not realize that no one grows old and retires from this particular profession known as a drug dealer, street pharmacist, pusher, trapper, d-boy, and candyman?  Why not get a regular job?  Well, according to some drug dealers, they do have regular jobs.  In fact, some have more than one.  However, these jobs that pay a little over minimum wage barely scratch the surface.  In other words, the mediocre pay is not enough to pay all of the bills.  It is definitely not enough to pay for unexpected situations, such as medical emergencies or repairs on [...]
