What is the Difference Between a Misdemeanor Sexual Offense and a Felony Sexual Offense?

What is the Difference Between a Misdemeanor Sexual Offense and a Felony Sexual Offense?Have you been charged with a misdemeanor sexual offense or a felony sexual offense? If so, the charges against you can have a devastating effect on your life and the lives of your family members. If you are convicted of a sexual offense in California, you could face significant prison time, expensive fines and court fees, forced sexual offender registration, and mandatory sexual offender counseling sessions. You may be restrained from seeing your own children and other family members.

The prosecutors who handle these specialized criminal charges aggressively pursue defendants and seek a conviction at any cost. Many sexual offense cases are filed even though there may be very little evidence that can be corroborated through witness testimony or physical evidence. Regardless, once the sexual assault charges are filed, the suspect is regarded as a sexual offender and needs an experienced, effective sex crime defense attorney to protect his or her freedom.

Not Your Kitchen Herbs and Spices

spicesBack in 1984, a scientist at Clemson University named John W. Huffman began studying the interaction between drugs and brain receptors. He and his colleagues created 460 synthetic cannabinoid compounds that resemble THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

Why? The answer was harmless enough. The brain receptors play a role in regulating pain and inflammation in the body, and as Huffman and his team tested their cannabinoid compounds on lab animals, the results were promising—some of their compounds succeeded in reducing pain, inflammation, and certain skin cancers. In fact, one of his compounds, JWH-133 (named after Huffman), shrank brain tumors and regressed non-melanoma skin cancers in mice—a very exciting discovery for Huffman.

Then things started to go south, as Huffman had feared. He published his positive findings, but the chemical formulas, some very easy to reproduce with common substances, fell into the hands of the wrong people and the fake marijuana craze had begun. [Read more…]

The Fight Against Campus Sexual Assault Continues to Gain Strength

Supreme courthouseAccording to the news, there is an epidemic of campus sexual assault in our nation. To help curb this problem, federal and state legislation are cracking down.

After a three-day trial, Pilot Michael Pascal was found guilty of two counts of sexual abuse. He was charged in a U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City, where he resides.

On a flight to Detroit to Salt Lake City, Pascal was a passenger that sat next to a 14-year-old girl. When the young girl woke up from a nap, Pascal’s hand was groping her buttocks.

The girl immediately elbowed Pascal and asked him what he was doing. The arm rest that she put between them earlier was pulled up when she awoke.

According to the documents, he became flustered when she called him out, saying that he was asleep. He also stated that put the arm rest up because he was crammed in the middle seat.
