Teen's alleged theft of sports car leads to more severe charges

It can be difficult to understand how the criminal justice system works. Sometimes, prosecutors and/or judges will also take liberties when handling criminal cases, making some aspects even more confusing.

Ex-NFL player blames DUI charge on dementia and faulty test

It's not uncommon to hear that an athlete or former athlete is arrested for driving under the influence. While many may be fascinated by watching the mighty fall it's possible that much of the impairment is not their fault. Recently, a former NFL player was arrested on DUI charges. He played in the late 60s and 70s, a time when helmet regulation was less stringent as it is currently. Due to brain injuries sustained on the football field, many other players have experienced some dementia symptoms that can impair driving. While the former player admits to drinking on the day of his arrest, he believes it is the injury resulting from his football career, not the alcohol that is responsible for any impairment he had on the road.

Maryland assault suspect murders fellow student while on bail

When assault happens, there is a lot of attention and sympathy directed toward the victim. While this focus is definitely warranted, it's important that the accused be properly considered as well. Unfortunately, this doesn't always happen the way it should. In one Maryland case, a university student on bail for an assault and in the process of facing expulsion was later accused of murdering another student and eating his heart. Clearly, the crime is gruesome. But it brings to mind a question that too often isn't properly considered. "Why would someone do something like this?"
