    We keep hearing from the sentencing "reform" movement that our criminal justice system is broken.  We heard it once more today in an op-ed in the NYT.Is it true?  Is our criminal justice system broken?I stumbled across the graph below doing some research.  Judge for yourself.  My own view is easy to state.  The claim that the criminal justice system is broken is not just misguided or poorly informed.   It's a point-blank lie.  The number of victims of violent crime aged 12 and over, per 1000 population, has dropped by two-thirds in one generation.

  • Phones In Cells At NZ’s Newest Prison

    Brian
    7 May 2015 | 8:03 am
    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - As we have commented before, we believe that contraband cell phones are a problem of both supply and demand. Due to the demand for cell phones in prison, there is an active and highly lucrative pipeline of supply. Most prison administrations have focused on restricting the supply of contraband cell phones through detection, jamming and search. However, like the problem of drug smuggling, without addressing the demand for contraband, the problem will never be solved. In addition to reducing the demand for, and therefore the supply of, contraband cell…

    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - The inmate communication services industry is being fundamentally reshaped by the FCC. Potentially more significant than its predecessor initiative, which significantly reduced prison payphone long-distance rates, the recently issued Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking seeks comment on key drivers of revenue and profit for these prison payphone providers and the prisons themselves. With the two largest providers of payphone services owned by private equity firms, not usually known for embracing a shrinking profit model, it will be interesting to see…

    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - Innovation, especially technology innovation, requires a willingness to challenge accepted approaches to problems as well as entrenched industry “truths”. This nontraditional thinking is best captured by a quote from hockey great Wayne Gretzky, “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.” Back in June of 2011, we issued a press release announcing the introduction of the meshDETECT Secure Prison Cell Phone Solution. In the press release we said, “The meshDETECT™ secure cell phone platform devalues…

    Winter in New Hampshire means snow! And there was lots of it this year. There is a growing concern of roofs collapsing in New Hampshire due to the record amount of snow this winter. The concern came true as heavy snow stormed parts of New Hampshire led to the collapse of roofs and loss of properties in different parts of the state. Devastation was worse in parts of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where it caused havoc in many buildings. Because of too much snow, 500 to 700 residents were displaced after the roof of their apartment building collapsed. Thankfully, no one was hurt. The property owner…

    JacksonWhite Law
    15 May 2015 | 10:00 am
    Yes, failure to pay the fines and court fees associated with being in the criminal justice system can lead to jail time. However, the courts do offer defendants an option to pay the fees in increments, but missed payments will lead to penalties and added interest, which could make the fees unaffordable.

    Shoplifting is considered a theft crime in Arizona and comes with serious penalties. The consequences for shoplifting and other theft crimes depend largely on the monetary value of the items stolen. However, that is not the case when it comes to shoplifting firearms in AZ.

On Friday, the attorney representing Arpaio in his contempt trial, Tim Casey, submitted a motion to Judge Murray Snow asking for approval to withdraw from the case, stating he is “ethically required” to do so. Karen Clark, legal counsel for Casey, says that the withdraw request comes in response to a testimony given by the Sheriff last week.

    Before answering that question, the process of setting aside a criminal conviction in Arizona should first be explained. A.R.S. 13-907 states that an individual convicted of a criminal offense, who has fulfilled the conditions of their probation or sentence and has been discharged by the court, may apply to a judge, justice of the peace, or magistrate to have their judgment set aside. The offender shall be informed of this right at the time of their discharge. Can anyone apply on my behalf?

If you’re either new to credit card processing rates or don’t yet have a tremendous volume of transactions, it may be more difficult for you to get better rates—but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try.  According to Phil Hinke, a processing expert, in order to get better rates for your small business, you must demonstrate that you understand…

    When you are setting up your law practice, there are many things on your checklist that you have to take care of, but you probably never thought that retaining a private investigator would be one of them. Thanks to their portrayal in the media, investigative professionals often enjoy a poor reputation. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth, as any P.I. who behaved as unscrupulously as their typical television counterpart would quickly find themselves behind bars. Real life P.I.s can be a lawyer’s best friend on a tough case. Here are seven big ways that a private…

    The internet is a wonderful tool. On the internet, we can learn how to fix almost anything, find people and discover just about anything about anyone. People who want to find out something about another person will typically contact a private investigator, a person who is trained to find out the truth by any means necessary. The PI uses tools that help them track down people, find out what a person is up to and what they have done in their past. The PI is capable of finding just about anyone using the tools they are trained with. But with the internet, now anyone can use social media tools to…

    Beyoncé seems to be worried that her husband Jay Z has earned his nickname “King of Sting.” According to reports, the pop diva has hired a private investigator to keep tabs on Jay Z’s movements when he is away from home. Last year, the singer’s sister, Solange, was caught on CCTV apparently assaulting Jay Z in an elevator. And now, after seven years of marriage, Beyoncé seemingly needs to confirm the constant rumors regarding her husband’s apparent infidelity.

    The idea of ultimate justice is appealing to those of us who have strong empathy for victims in vicious and unspeakable crimes. However, the cost of implementing such an unyielding and unrepairable finality as taking someone’s life, is that from time to time we’ll make a mistake and get it wrong. The end result of a mistake like this is the execution of an innocent man. As a society are we so hungry for “justice” or perhaps “vengeance” that we are willing to accept the collateral damage that an imperfect system of justice will continue to provide? In this…

    Matthew Wallin

    Were you pulled over and arrested for DUI? In California, it is a crime to operate a vehicle with .08 percent or more (by weight) of alcohol in his or her blood [California Vehicle Code Section 23152(b)]. California Vehicle Code Section 23152(b) further states that it is a rebuttable presumption that the person had 0.08 percent blood alcohol level, if a chemical test was performed within three hours after driving, which resulted in a 0.08 blood alcohol level or more. What is a rebuttable presumption? This language begs the question: “What is a rebuttable presumption?” A rebuttable…
  • Should California’s Cops Carry “Spitalyzers” for Drugs?

      Police may soon be carrying new “spitalyzer” devices, which are basically breathalyzer devices that test whether you are under the influence of drugs. If you are a driver, you are probably aware that police use Breathalyzers to test a suspected alcohol-impaired driver’s breath to determine if the driver has been drinking. These breath-testing devices currently do not test for drugs other than alcohol, but if the California legislature approves a change to the law, the cops may be carrying “spitalyzers” to do the same kind of test for drugs. Recently, Sacramento…
  • Getting a DUI without a License: Do You Still Need a DMV Hearing? 

    Matthew Wallin
    7 May 2015 | 12:34 pm
    Have you been arrested for DUI without a license? In California, when you are arrested for DUI, your license will be suspended 30 days after the arrest. In order to fight this, you must request a DMV administrative hearing within 10 days of your arrest. If you do not have a driver’s license at the time of your arrest, then you do not need to file for a DMV hearing. Instead, if you are charged with drunk driving without a license, you will face two separate criminal cases.

A 22-year-old woman responded to the ad however, she claims that Symons was not the man in the picture he allegedly sent. Symons is said to have forced the woman into his car.

Robinson would be her final client as he’s been charged with allegedly murdering Ms. Carroll.

New York investigators say that Blum posted a craigslist ad allegedly looking for sex with someone underage who was “interested in messing around with a licensed real teacher.” He might as well have just called the police to turn himself in to eliminate the middle man. Instead police posed as a 14-year-old girl and were able to arrest Blum at a pre-arranged meeting place. At least this exposed a teacher as an alleged predator before he could hopefully harm any kids.
