Firearm possession after a conviction

If you or someone you know is facing criminal charges in Nebraska, one of the things on your mind at this time may well be the long-term consequences of a potential conviction. Depending on the nature of the charges, a conviction might involve a person performing community service and paying a fine or it might involve a person spending many years in prison among other penalties. 

Probation and fines, no prison, for man

Nebraska residents who have been charged with even one let alone multiple felony offenses might understandably be concerned about the penalties they might experience if they are eventually convicted of the crimes. There can be a wide range of criminal penalties that vary based in part on the exact crime charged as well as whether or not a person has had any prior offenses depending on the type of crime. 

Murder charge challenged by defense team

As with any criminal offense, people who are accused of felonies in Nebraska deserve the right to a fair defense and to be considered innocent of any crime until they are conclusively proven to be guilty. For some defendants, an important part of the criminal justice journey for them may well be ensuring that that are fairly accused of any charge let alone actually proving their innocence.

Adult felony charges to be faced by juvenile

Nebraska residents who hear about minors being arrested for crimes regardless of the nature of those offenses often assume that a person under the age of 18 will be charged as a juvenile, especially if they are two, three or more years younger than 18. However, that is not always the case as can be seen in some recent situations in the state.

Nebraska's age of consent and sexual assault

When it comes to understanding alleged sexual crimes involving teenagers, one thing that people in Nebraska need to understand is what the state considers the age of consent. This is one area of law that differs from state to state. According to the Age of Consent, the state of Nebraska has identified 16 as the age at which a person is legally able to participate in sexual activity.

Children may face criminal charges for bullying

Many people would say that bullying is an inevitable part of life. Parents, school administrators and students have taken steps in recent years to bring awareness to the problem of bullying and to prevent it, but the fact remains that some young people in Nebraska and elsewhere will participate in teasing, threatening or harming others. It is important for parents and students to understand that some types of bullying can be seen as a crime and may result in serious charges.

Internet prank results in innocent man’s death

There is a new culture that has sprung up in the decades since the Internet became a part of nearly everyone’s lives. Social media, news article comment sections and online gaming forums have lent a sense of anonymity to most of the people who interact in these areas. For many residents of Nebraska and elsewhere, the ability to comment and interact with strangers without disclosing one’s identity may also create a false sense of security. Some may reason that they can say what they want, while others may take things further and commit an online crime without fearing reprisal.

Understanding manslaughter and murder in Nebraska

If you are facing charges related to someone’s death, you could be understandably worried about the potential consequences. Depending on the circumstances, there are varying degrees to the charges you might face for murder or manslaughter in Nebraska. At Monzón, Guerra & Associates, Attorneys At Law, we feel is it important for you and others to understand the differences.

What is a plea bargain?

After a felony charge in Nebraska, you could be expecting a prolonged courtroom battle that keeps you from returning to your life for months, or even years, if you are convicted. The American Bar Association explains that depending on your circumstances, a plea bargain may be an option that allows you to skip the trial and negotiate a potentially better outcome with the prosecution.

What are the different classes of felonies in Nebraska?

You likely know from having heard news stories in Lincoln or seen in other forms of popular media that not all criminal offenses are created equal. Yet if you or a loved one have been arrested and charged with a felony offense, are you aware of what may in store for you and your family or friends? Having that knowledge may help better prepare you for the actions that could be to come.
