Most St. Louis residents believe in the concept of fairness. This concept is integral to the criminal justice system. Individuals who are charged with crimes by the government have many rights that are protected and recognized under our legal system, including the right to a fair trial.
Tax season has come and gone for most St. Louis residents, with many filing their returns by the recent deadline. While these individuals may believe they are now finished dealing with their taxes for another year, this may not be the case based on recent activity.
Many St. Louis residents have grown accustomed to using the internet on a regular basis in their personal and professional lives. While the internet has revolutionized the way individuals communicate and interact with one another, it has also resulted in many new criminal charges being brought against individuals for various forms of internet crime.
When St. Louis residents are accused of doing something wrong, often times their first instinct is to talk through the situation and explain any misunderstanding that may have occurred. There may be nothing wrong with this when the situation involves family, friends or work acquaintances, but when the alleged wrongdoing happens to be a criminal charge, individuals' instinct to speak with law enforcement to explain the situation can land them in even more trouble.
