Child pornography lands man in 10 year prison sentence

A 72-year-old Minnesota man was convicted last week on one charge for possession of child pornography. He was sentenced to an unusually harsh 10 years in prison and 10 years supervised release. His sentence was possibly made longer because this was his second child exploitation related offense.

Two Georgian men charged in interstate armed robbery case

The Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida filed charges against multiple defendants earlier this week. The complaint alleges that a team of four people conspired to and actually robbed several jewelry stores in multiple states. Specifically, they planned and executed robberies against stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina. The defendants crossed state lines to commit these crimes, therefore, it implicates federal law, additionally, it could implicate state charges. Generally, the federal crimes will be tried first, and then each state will get their turn to try any state-specific crimes.

Can you be charged for abducting your own child?

If you are a birth parent, then your child is your own flesh and blood. As such, you will typically have parental rights over her or him. However, if you take your child somewhere without first getting the consent of the child's other parent or guardian, does the act constitute kidnapping? Well, in the age of divorce and joint custody over children, the sharing of custody has introduced a new interpretation of the term "kidnap."

Innocent acts could lead to cybercrime charges

Cybercrime and cyberterrorism are all the rage in the media these days. It is very easy to run afoul of computer-related laws if you don't make yourself aware of where the legal lines are drawn. You have your standard offenses like larceny or fraud, like using a computer to steal money or information. But sometimes how you commit a crime can easily influence your punishment. Additionally, many people may engage in conduct that they view as harmless, but is, in fact, a serious offense.

Ex-federal worker may face prison time for workplace lie

It is terrifying how quickly a workplace disagreement can spiral out of control and implicate racial, police and hate crime matters. A former U.S. Army Corp of Engineers employee pleaded guilty to making false statements to a federal officer. The statements in question were in regard as to how a picture of a Confederate battle flag found itself onto the desk of a co-worker. Reportedly, the defendant twice lied to the investigating officer, denying any involvement.
