We recently wrote about the strong passage of House Bill 1947 in the Pennsylvania House.

If jurors can be so deeply […]

No matter what your views on gun control may be, it is difficult to ignore the fact that no other industrialized nation on earth experiences as many mass shootings, murders and other violent crimes as the United States.

When a person becomes a sex/violent crime victim, the emotional and psychological trauma they face doesn’t end when the crime is completed. It often doesn’t even end when the perpetrator is arrested, convicted and sent to prison. Depending on the nature and severity of the crime, victims can struggle for years with post-traumatic stress disorder, […]

For many victims of sexual abuse, facing the perpetrator in court can be a scary prospect. And because sexual abuse typically involves layers of shame, embarrassment and fear, victims often find that discussing it in court can also be very difficult. In both criminal and civil sex abuse trials, it is sometimes necessary for victims to take […]

Imagine being the victim of a crime and having the bravery to testify against the perpetrator in court. When you file a civil lawsuit, however, attorneys for the defense essentially call you a liar.

Six people were killed during a 22-year-old man’s shooting rampage, which occurred near Santa Barbara, California. Making the case even more chilling is the fact that the shooter revealed his plans ahead of time in a YouTube video. After any […]
