This is why suspects should always exercise their right to an attorney present when they are responding to charges.

Dealing with police can be stressful, especially if you have had negative experiences with law enforcement in the past.

While you may understand that your past convictions or the suspicion of police may place you in a difficult situation, running away will only make matters worse.

What factors contribute to domestic violence?

Domestic violence charges always have the power to ruin lives.
