Former Nebraska police officer suspected of drunk driving

Residents of any city, here in Nebraska and across the country, trust their police force to protect them from potential harm. However, police officers are human, and like anyone else, they can occasionally make serious errors in judgment. Sometimes, such public authorities commit the same crimes that they are supposed to prevent others from committing. Unfortunately, this seems to be the case in what authorities say was a drunk driving incident involving a former Lincoln police officer.

Common asset division issues in Nebraska

One of the most stressful aspects of going through a divorce in Nebraska can often relate to the process of dividing assets. Couples who have been married for many years can become financially intertwined, meaning that they have little to no sense of what counts as marital property and what does not. In addition, they commonly become financially dependent on each other, making the separation of finances difficult to transition into.

Nebraska residents require criminal defense following robbery

Sometimes, friends get together and conjure a plan to make some money quickly and easily. However, if the plan involves illegal activity, most often the participants end up in serious trouble with the law. Such was the case when a Nebraska store robbery led to the arrest of two men and a woman who now require criminal defense.

Nebraska man arrested on suspicion of drunk driving

Although most Nebraska residents are fully aware of the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, unfortunately, some drivers still indulge in one or more of these substances before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle.

A Nebraska man was part of a multiple-vehicle accident in which, according to law enforcement authorities, drunk driving was involved.

Woman charged with hiding evidence related to drug charges

Relationships can be complicated under the best of circumstances, but when one person is involved in a criminal situation, even more so. At such a time, emotions typically become amplified, and that person's friend or partner may instinctively want to do whatever is necessary to make the situation easier for the incarcerated party. However, in these types of situations, a sense of misplaced loyalty will often just lead to further trouble for all involved parties. This may be what happened following an incident in which two Nebraska men were arrested and are facing drug charges, and a woman now also faces serious charges for allegedly concealing evidence related to the case.

What's the difference between misdemeanor and felony theft?

People can face theft charges over all kinds of behavior, from shoplifting in a store to joyriding in someone else's vehicle. Although some people may think of theft as a relatively minor crime, it can have dramatic implications for its victims. It also undermines the social contract of good behavior that we all expect when we live in polite society.
