What makes an online threat illegal?

Social media has long since crossed the line between novel and everyday, a fact that has prompted lawmakers to embrace new laws that create a safer and less hostile environment for users. Many of the laws strive to prevent online threats and allow for the persecution of those who make them. Unfortunately for cyberbully victims, the Supreme Court seems to take the stance that online threats are merely a form of free speech. However, that has not stopped states such as Georgia from regulating and prosecuting individuals whom they believe have made credible online threats. 

What are the best defenses to DUI charges?

Though you should do everything in your power to prevent getting arrested and charged with a DUI in Georgia, it is that time of year when police are out and about and pulling over anyone who looks suspicious. If you have more than two drinks at a holiday party and an officer stops you, you may be over the legal limit. If you have a particularly potent drink at a restaurant, you may be over the legal limit. A DUI can negatively impact your life in multiple ways, including both financially and reputation-wise. Fortunately, you may be able to beat DUI charges with a strong defense.

What are consent apps?

People use technology often these days in criminal cases. However, there is a new way to use it when it comes to defense for sexual assault crimes. Many of these crimes end up being one person's word against another. With the new consent apps for your smartphone, consent becomes clear, according to The New York Times.

When can an officer arrest me?

It is a stressful situation when an officer places you under arrest. However, it is also a situation where you must be aware of your rights. That begins with knowing when an officer can arrest you under Georgia law. According to the Georgia Bar Association, officers may arrest someone with a warrant or without a warrant.
