Two men accused of using counterfeit currency in New York


It is an unfortunate fact that counterfeit currency is present in New York. A person may even unknowingly pass it on when purchasing goods. However, sometimes a person is accused of intentionally trying to use counterfeit money, leading to criminal charges.

Does New York allow a person's criminal record to be expunged?


Some states allow a person to expunge their criminal record -- that is, have it disappear forever. Unfortunately, New York is not one of these states. However, New York will allow a person's criminal record to be sealed in certain circumstances. What does that mean?

Understanding the consequences of misdemeanor crimes


Being accused of a crime in New York can be a frightening thing, especially when legal jargon is thrown around. For example, there are important differences between felonies and misdemeanors that should be understood, particularly when it comes to the penalties associated with these classifications.

When can a warrantless arrest be made in New York?


In a previous post, we discussed the requirements that must be met for an officer to obtain an arrest warrant. In general, a police officer must obtain a warrant in order to arrest a person for an alleged crime. However, one might wonder whether there are times when a police officer can arrest a person without first obtaining a warrant?

Charges against news producers dismissed after WTC-site incident


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.
