What should I know about wire fraud?

Many white collar crimes are based on a person trying to get access to assets by means that aren't legitimate. These methods often involve scams, fraud, phishing or spam. When the method used to try to defraud another person out of his or her money occurs across interstate wires a person might be charged with wire fraud.

Your Miranda rights are important

In our previous blog post, we discussed a case in which a man's interrogation regarding a sex-related crime wasn't being allowed in his trial because the judge felt that there was a chance that he didn't understand his Miranda rights. That case showed that not only do the authorities have to recite these rights to you, but they must also ensure that you understand what they mean.

Comprehension of rights matters during interrogations

People who are being interrogated by police officers have specific rights that must be respected by the law enforcement officials who are handling the investigation. Namely, people who are being interrogated by police officers must be informed of their constitutional rights, and they must be able to understand what they are being told. When police officers fail to do this, that fact can have an impact on the criminal trial if charges are placed against the person who is interrogated. A recent rape case highlights this issue.

Appeals must be handled in very specific ways

The appeals process is an all-or-nothing process. Once a court rules on the case, your only option is to appeal it to the next higher court. Once you run out of courts, your appeals are exhausted. If you recall, we discussed how the appeals process works in our previous blog post.

What are some points I should know about criminal appeals?

If you pay attention to the news, you have likely heard about appeals being filed in criminal cases. If you are currently facing a criminal case, or if you have been convicted of a crime, you might have some questions about appeals. Understanding some basic points about appeals might help you determine a course of action.
