When you think of thieves in the night, the image that probably comes to mind is a burglar who breaks into your home and makes off with a few material items. The take might consist of computers, televisions, loose jewelry, silverware, or maybe a handgun. In Tennessee, the estimated total value of all the goods determines what the possible theft charge will be – a misdemeanor or felony.
If a recent DUI charge is something you are dealing with, you may find yourself under considerable apprehension and stress. The worry revolving around the potential outcomes of your legal case could have you feeling as if you have nowhere to turn for help. However, by gaining more information on the legal process ahead of you and the potential outcomes you could face if a conviction occurs, you may gain a greater ability to make informed decisions regarding your steps forward.
What does it take to declare something a trend? We doubt that anyone can claim that there is a clear consensus on an answer. It's not a bad idea to keep your eye out for the possible indicators, however, especially if the movement could have legal consequences for you.
Guns don't kill people. People kill people. That's a common argument Second Amendment supporters use to counter gun control efforts. As we noted in a post last month, some use a somewhat similar argument reacting to efforts to crack down on suppliers in drug overdose deaths. The case they seek to make is that the person responsible for the death is the user, not the supplier.
