A celebrity's every little move is always under the intense glare of the public's eye. Therefore, when an actor is accused of a crime, the entire situation could be blown out of proportion and have a serious impact on that person's career and personal reputation.
A strong criminal defense may be able to minimize the harm criminal charges and accusations can bring. Two CNN news reporters will have charges against them dismissed after allegedly trespassing at the World Trade Center site. The two were accused of trespassing at the World Trade Center site while reporting on security lapses at the site. One of the producers will have the misdemeanor charges against him dismissed, provided he completes two days of community service. The charges against the other producer were dropped, as he only recorded video at the site during the alleged incident.
