When do you obtain the right to an attorney?

Everyone has seen legal dramas on T.V., and they almost all understand that the police inform those who are arrested of their right to an attorney. That's true in real life, too. Anyone who is being accused of a crime does have a right to an attorney being present during official questioning or trial.

Racial disparity seen in jails and prisons throughout America

The racial disparity in jails and prisons in Missouri and throughout America went down significantly between 2000 and 2016. In 2000, a black person was 15 times more likely to be an inmate than a white person. However, in 2016, a black person was only five times more likely than a white person to be in a state jail or prison. This was largely attributed to the fact that there was a significant drop in the number of people sent to jail or prison for drug crimes.

Marijuana found near Missouri elementary school

Police seized what they described as a significant quantity of marijuana on Nov. 19 about a block away from a Belton elementary school. A Belton Police Department representative said the drugs had been packaged in a manner that suggested they were to be distributed. One individual was taken into custody in connection with the seized drugs. Criminal charges against the man are said to be pending.
