Hate crimes are very serious and prosecuted harshly

Hate crimes can often involve violence. These crimes are especially troubling because the alleged victim is often chosen based on factors he or she can't control. These include race, gender, disabilities, sexual orientation or religious beliefs. If you are charged with a crime that is labeled as a hate crime, there is a chance that you could face very serious time in prison.

Missouri law forbids brass knuckles in almost all circumstances

Protecting yourself if you get into a fight is something that anyone would want to do. It is important for you to know that how you protect yourself matters. Missouri laws sets some very harsh penalties for weapons-related crimes, so if you are facing one of these charges, you should learn all you can about the elements of the case.

Do I qualify for a drug diversion program?

If you have been charged with a drug crime, you may be surprised to hear that there is a way to get out of hefty fines and jail time. While drug court is sometimes considered a program for younger offenders, the state of Missouri offers an adult drug diversion program for older residents who do not qualify for the juvenile program. If you qualify, you may be able to avoid the life-altering punishments that typically await those accused of drug crimes.

People charged with sex crimes have the right to a defense

In our previous blog post, we discussed the case of a registered sex offender who is working with children. He is being investigated to determine if his current situation violates Missouri laws. If it is found that it does, he could face more criminal charges. His case is one stark example of how much life changes if you are convicted of a sex-related crime.
