Murder suspect found, arrested for Kalamazoo killing

When a violent crime like murder occurs in the Kalamazoo area or in any Michigan town the authorities and the victim's family may hunger for justice. While this aggressive pursuit may be a good thing, driving the police to work swiftly to find a killer, it can oftentimes cause innocent individuals to face criminal accusations. These allegations can threaten an individual with serious penalties, including prison, and it can severely damage his or her reputation.

The law surrounding making terroristic threats

In today's world, state and national security is a top priority. Surveillance efforts continue in post-9/11 America, and for good reason. Yet, government intrusion into our personal lives can lead to unwarranted criminal allegations. Sometimes those accusations involve terrorist, which could lead to serious charges. Failing to be aware of the laws surrounding these instances could be a costly mistake, and so, too, could failing to aggressively defend against prosecutors who may be out to set an example.

When can I be charged with first degree arson?

There are a lot of very serious crimes in Michigan. When you are on the receiving end of criminal accusations involving these crimes, you may be in for the fight of your life. For that reason, it is imperative that you familiarize yourself with the law and consult with a criminal defense attorney who may be able to help you protect your legal rights and fight back against overbearing and aggressive prosecutors. One of the more serious criminal charges you may need to challenge is arson.

What is involuntary manslaughter?

In April, we discussed voluntary manslaughter and how it differs from murder. Both crimes carry serious penalties, including a lengthy prison sentence and a history of violent crimes that may never go away. But what happens if a motorist kills someone by total accident? What if a driver was simply driving while distracted or while intoxicated and he or she hit and kill someone? In these instances, an individual may be contending with an involuntary manslaughter charge.
