Florida woman accused of sexually abusing infant

When most people think of sex crimes, they imagine a situation where someone sexually assaults another person by forcefully penetrating them against their will or coercing them into consenting to something they do not want to do. While these are certainly common types of sex crimes, there are other types of sex crimes as well, such as crimes committed against minors. When you bring minors into the equation, things can get much more complicated, even if you are not even dealing with issues of penetration.

Many people are familiar with the term capital punishment or the death penalty. It is a concept that can be as polarizing an issue as abortion or gun control.

Drifting in your lane could lead to drunk driving charges

You may have heard that police must have probable cause to pull you over for any kind of traffic violation, but what you may not know is just how broad the phrase "probable cause" truly is.

Florida man allegedly killed over drug debt

One of the main reasons that the authorities treat certain criminal activities with such severity is that many crimes beget other criminal activity. For example, many states impose harsh laws on cocaine and heroin not only because of the dangers posed by the drugs themselves but also because of the dangers that are caused by individuals seeking the drugs. Drug crimes are arguably chief among the crimes most likely to beget more crime, with many drug lords being responsible for other violent crimes such as homicide or sexual assault.
