Drug trafficking versus drug dealing

Drug charges of all kinds are very serious and should be handled with great care. Being convicted of a drug crime can have long-lasting effects, regardless of the nature of the offense. If you are facing drug charges, it is helpful to understand the difference between various kinds of charges, so that you can better build a strong defense and protect your future.

Is adultery illegal?

Despite the turning tide of public opinion toward greater freedoms for consenting adults, some states, including Kansas, still maintain laws that restrict certain behavior that are generally recognized as no one else's business.

You're in Kansas now.

White collar crimes are a strange and often misunderstood classification. It is one of the few areas in the law where a person can take actions that may result in quite serious legal repercussions and not even know that they are actually breaking the law in some cases.

A more in-depth understanding of how you might approach your defense may help you understand why it is so necessary in first place.
