Federal Crimes Archives

The Crime Of Googling

Users are just beginning to understand the information-gathering practices of companies like Google and Facebook. An ordinary online presence can reveal a person's income, buying habits, political affiliations, hobbies, susceptibility to marketing, associates and physical location. We all knowingly or unknowingly provide this information to companies that use it for their own gain.

Industrial Commission Crackdown Continues

The North Carolina Industrial Commission is responsible for, among other things, upholding the workers' compensation laws of the state. This enforcement includes actions to penalize employers who do not carry workers' compensation insurance or who fail to meet their duties when a worker suffers an injury.

Evidence Of Nothing – Understanding Forensic “Science”

The general understanding of evidence, as it pertains to criminal prosecutions, falls far short of the reality. Misinformation and misunderstanding by the public has repercussions for people who find themselves charged with a crime. While the law requires prosecutors to meet the burden of proof with evidence, many people assume that anyone charged with a crime must be guilty. Would a prosecutor really pursue charges if he or she wasn't positive the accused was guilty?

Would an impersonal criminal system be an improvement?

Judges perform a difficult and vital role in this country. The decisions they make shape the lives of countless Americans in ways both subtle and dramatic. In criminal courts, the decisions made by judges make all the difference for the people facing charges. Attempts to shift the burden of decision-making a judge to an algorithm or mathematical equation should be scrutinized carefully. Mistakes may go ignored if they can hide behind the facade of impartiality.

The Perpetual Line-Up

In 2016, researchers from Georgetown University found that at least 50 percent of all Americans had their photo entered into a facial recognition system. That system could be accessed by police or federal investigators without a warrant. The researchers called this database a "perpetual line-up" and likely expected citizens, and their representatives, to take action. Two years later, and basically nothing has been done to protect citizens from the abuse of facial recognition systems.

Can Police Search Your Car When It’s Parked In Your Garage?

Americans have a right to privacy. Without that right, police could simply break into any property in the hope of finding incriminating items. They could wreak havoc on the lives of law-abiding citizens and leave us all feeling vulnerable in our own homes. Even with the privacy right in place, police have the power to conduct searches under certain circumstances.

North Carolina towns want to push defendants to federal courts

It is just an hour's drive northwest of Raleigh to get to Alamance County. The city council in the county seat of Graham recently became the first in the area to allocate money for a new prosecutor to be devoted to drug crimes as well as firearms violations and prosecution of violent crimes, a news report states.

New Jersey fugitive cop arrested in Raleigh by federal agent

If you left Raleigh right now and drove northeast for about eight and a half hours, you would come to Asbury Park in New Jersey. The seaside town is famous for its beach, boardwalk and Bruce Springsteen connection. In recent days, it has also become known for the former police officer who fled an organized crime trial.
