Constitutional issues raised by the information age

Judges in South Carolina and around the country take the protections guaranteed by the Fourth and Fifth Amendments seriously. That's why evidence gathered during warrantless searches or coercive interrogations is unlikely to withstand scrutiny unless the police officers involved have compelling arguments. However, the law has sometimes been slow to respond to challenges raised by new technology. Most cellphones contain extremely sensitive information about their owners, but the degree to which the U.S. Constitution protects this data remains uncertain.

The difference between voluntary and involuntary manslaughter

When someone dies violently, the police typically spend a good deal of time investigating. The crime and the circumstances leading up to it become part of the investigation, and these factors all come together to form a complete picture. The type of charge you receive depends on the totality of the situation.

4 potential defenses for embezzlement charges

Embezzlement is a serious federal offense, and individuals convicted will look at years in prison. The former Berkeley County School District Chief Financial Officer recently went to court on embezzlement charges. The charges assert he embezzled more than $1 million in school funds over many years. If convicted, he could face up to 300 years in prison and millions of dollars' worth of fines.
