Former Nashville resident faces fraud charges

Criminal defense is not only important as a guarantee that anyone accused of a crime will receive a fair hearing.

You hope that when your child goes back to college this fall (or begins their freshman year), they'll focus on getting the education for which you're paying so dearly. You don't want them to get into anything that could get them in trouble at school — or worse, with the police. However, you can't control what your child or the people around them are doing doing every minute. That's why it's essential for college students to understand what rights they do and don't have in their dorm rooms or other campus housing.

An accidental overdose can bring serious criminal charges

It happens every day in this country and around the world. People bring drugs over to a friend's house so they can get high together. Siblings combine their allowance money to buy drugs online or from someone in the neighborhood. Someone goes to a party where everyone is sharing their drugs.

Why you could go to jail for sharing prescription drugs

Many people have shared prescription drugs with a family member, friend or colleague. Someone's in pain. You've got something that will ease that pain. Why not? It's not like you're a drug dealer. You're not making money off the drugs. You're just trying to help someone out.
