Dallas Criminal Lawyer On How The OJ Simpson Defense Tactics Can Help Your Case

Dallas Criminal Lawyer On How The OJ Simpson Defense Tactics Can Help Your Case

Dallas, TX, USA, 08/23/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

The OJ Simpson trial happened over twenty years ago, but it continues to capture the public’s imagination. FX recently aired a miniseries on the case, and ESPN aired a five-part documentary in June about the rise and fall of OJ Simpson, added Dallas criminal lawyer John Helms.

“I was a young lawyer during the trial, and I had a case in a nearby federal court in Los Angeles. I was working very long hours at the time, but I followed the case as closely as I could.  I also read two books about the case in the years following the trial.”

So much has been written about the case, the evidence, and especially the trial, but this is my take on the main lesson a criminal defense lawyer can learn from the defense strategy: Know your jury and what will appeal to them.

The case should have been a slam-dunk for the prosecutors, and they thought it was. The evidence of Mr. Simpson’s guilt was truly overwhelming. The prosecutors failed in a lot of ways, but their main failing, in my view, was making the case too complicated without explaining how the evidence completely ruled out the defense’s theory.

What criminal defense attorney Johnny Cochran knew was that this particular jury would be receptive to a beyond-far-fetched theory that all of the evidence could have been planted by rogue, racist LAPD cops. He knew, from years of experience trying civil rights cases against the police, that the African-American community in Los Angeles had deep-seated mistrust and anger toward the LAPD, much, if not all of which was probably justified.

The jury consisted of eight African Americans, two Hispanics, one half-Native American and half Anglo, and one Anglo woman. Only two of the twelve jurors were college graduates.  None of them said they regularly read a newspaper, but eight regularly watched tabloid TV. This was, in other words, a jury that would be receptive to appeals to emotion and conspiracy theories and would likely believe that the LAPD was racist and willing to plant evidence to get a conviction just because the defendant was African American.

Johnny Cochran tried the case masterfully for this audience. He did not try to connect the dots. He used a simple argument: The cops, especially Mark Fuhrman, were racist and could not be trusted. If they were racists who could not be trusted, then all of the evidence could have been planted or doctored.

With this jury, it worked to perfection, even though it defied logic and common sense when you consider the facts. First of all, at the time the evidence was collected, the LAPD did not know whether Mr. Simpson had an airtight alibi. If he had, it would have become obvious very quickly that evidence was planted, especially Simpson’s blood at Nicole Brown’s house and cops would have gone to jail. There was also simply no way that one, or even three, police officers could have gone back and forth between Simpson’s house and Nicole Brown’s house dropping blood and evidence from one location at the other. Even if they could have, physically, the media and other officers would have seen them. There is also no innocent way to explain how Ron Goldman’s blood got in OJ Simpson’s Bronco, especially since they did not even know each other. The type of conspiracy that the defense needed would have had to involve dozens of detectives and officers, none of who knew at the time whether Mr. Simpson had an alibi. It strains logic way past the breaking point.

The prosecutors completely failed to make this point effectively. Even if they had, it is unclear that this jury would have been persuaded.

Johnny Cochran, however, knew that this jury would be persuaded less by logic and reasoning than by appeals to emotion and their pre-existing beliefs about justice and the LAPD. He wove his argument throughout the case in a simple and persuasive way.

None of this is a criticism of Mr. Cochran. He deserves the highest praise for the job he did representing his client.

The lesson of knowing your jury and what appeals to them does not just apply to high profile cases. I know from my experience trying cases that a jury in a small town in East Texas is more likely to be receptive to themes about personal liberty and personal responsibility than a Dallas jury, which may respond more to themes about fairness and equality. Each case is different, but one of a criminal defense lawyer’s most important jobs at trial is to find a theme that fits the defense and resonates with the particular jury in the box.

If you have been charged with any crime, including drug possession, fraud, assault, theft or a federal drug crime, call Dallas criminal attorney John Helms at 214-666-8010 or visit his website.

Operation Kindness’ Companies Who Care Is A Win-Win

Operation Kindness’ Companies Who Care Is A Win-Win

Carrollton, TX, 08/23/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Operation Kindness – North Texas’ original and largest no-kill animal shelter – has created the Companies Who Care program to allow North Texas’ businesses a way to get out of the office to interact with adorable, adoptable animals to raise funds and awareness of the shelter, while also enhancing employee health and productivity.

“North Texans have always been known for their generosity, and for this, we are forever grateful to be a part of the Dallas-Fort Worth community,” says Jim Hanophy, CEO of Operation Kindness. “In the past year, we have had more than 28 companies step out of their office to volunteer at our campus. The support of corporate sponsors allowed us to save more than 4,500 lives in 2015, and we are aiming to help many more in 2016.”

Employees are eager to interact with animals because of the many proven benefits that help boost productivity and morale in the workplace, including:

·       The lowering of blood pressure, serum triglycerides and cholesterol levels by exposure to animals

·       Increased production of neurochemicals in the brain associated with relaxation and bonding, which also improve immune system functioning

·       Increased dopamine and endorphins associated with happiness, with decreased levels of stress hormones such as cortisol following a 30-minute interaction with a dog, provides stress-relieving benefits that allow employees to become more relaxed and in turn return to work more productive.

As a part of the corporate giving program, companies can arrange for a Work Paws Playdate to have Operation Kindness bring socialized puppies, dogs and sometimes kittens to any local workplace. This unique program treats humans to a “Cuteness Break,” featuring playtime with adoptable pets and “fur therapy” of dog kisses and cat purrs – ensuring employees will return to work rejuvenated and ready to take on the rest of their day. Playdates are limited and arranged with a sponsorship fee on a first come, first serve basis.

Companies are also encouraged to participate in Kindness, Inc – a unique team-building program designed to encourage teamwork, philanthropy, and career development by bringing the office together for a full day of team exercises and interactions with cute animals. Hosted by Steve A. Klein, CEO of Professional Development Center, employees participate in corporate training featuring three different workshops that focus on understanding communication styles, increasing teamwork and improving intentional communication. Kindness, Inc. is designed for groups of 10 – 20 employees. Each participant is provided lunch, a team t-shirt and certificate of participation for $250 per employee.

Operation Kindness is unlike other nonprofits and does not receive funding from the government, instead relying solely on funds from donations and corporate sponsorships to care for homeless animals. Since 1976, Operation Kindness has saved over 85,000 dogs and cats. Each life saved by Operation Kindness costs an average of $398 to provide comprehensive care before adoption; in some cases, the costs are higher for animals that have been injured and require lifesaving surgeries. In 2015, Operation Kindness was able to save the lives and find forever homes for 4,519 animals. The on-site medical hospital provided care to over 5,000 animals and performed 5,163 surgeries; 13,169 exams; 1,587 spays and 1,541 neuters; provided more than $83,000 worth of medicine; and served 328,000 meals. To help Operation Kindness save more lives in 2016, employees can join together to raise funds needed to provide lifesaving medical services by creating a Companies Who Care fundraising campaign with TXT-2-Give by texting “give” to 972-441-7708.

Companies across the metroplex are welcome to learn more about how they can become involved in Operation Kindness’ Companies Who Care program by visiting www.OperationKindness.org.

About Operation Kindness

Founded in 1976, Operation Kindness is the original and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas. Its mission is to care for homeless cats and dogs in a no-kill environment until each is adopted into responsible homes and to advocate humane values and behavior. In 2016, Operation Kindness will celebrate their 40th anniversary and their achievement of saving more than 80,000 animals since their inception. Annually the shelter assists more than 5,000 dogs and cats, caring for an average of 300 animals daily with another 100-150 animals in foster homes.

Join Operation Kindness in their mission to care for homeless animals by becoming a member of the Happy Tails Society. This group of dedicated friends provides a monthly gift to help pay for the medical care, medicine, food, shelter, nurturing and behavior training the pets need to have a second chance at life.

Cycling Popular But Dangerous Says Philadelphia Car Accident Lawyer Rand Spear

Cycling Popular But Dangerous Says Philadelphia Car Accident Lawyer Rand Spear

Philadelphia, PA, USA, 08/22/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Cycling has become popular in Philadelphia but it’s dangerous when cyclists need to deal with negligent drivers. Sixteen cyclists died and nearly 1,300 were injured in crashes with vehicles in 2015 reports the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. In the first of a two-part podcast available on YouTube Philadelphia car accident lawyer, Rand Spear has suggestions for motorists on how to avoid accidents with cyclists.

Spear says the number of accidents involving cyclists in Pennsylvania has remained fairly constant, in the 1,200 to 1,300 range per year, but the number of fatalities last year,16, was the second highest in the last five years.

“Most accidents involving cyclists are at intersections. We all need to be very careful when there are cyclists near us and we’re operating a motor vehicle,” car accident attorney Spear says. “You have to appreciate the cyclist’s vulnerability. When you’re in a car that’s probably two tons or more; the average bike is 20 pounds so recognize that you’re operating a dangerous vehicle compared to a bicycle. If there is an accident odds are they’re going to get hurt badly because they have nothing around them to protect them.”

“Drivers should know cyclists’ rights. Traffic laws apply to cyclists and in many occasions, they have the right of way. So many people think that the cyclist is in their way but they’re entitled to be on the roadway just as we are in motor vehicles. Once you understand that, you take a step back and you realize they have the right to be there then I think you’ll be much more focused on where they are, what they’re doing and take all the necessary precautions to avoid any type of accident.”

Rand says drivers need to avoid giving cyclists “the right hook.” “By that I mean cars that are making a right turn at an intersection should be very careful to watch out for cyclists because very often they’re on the right side of the road or crossing at the intersection. They could be difficult to observe so slow down and when you’re going to make a right turn, check your surrounding area very carefully,” Spear suggests. He also cautions drivers taking a left turn to look for an oncoming cyclist.

“There’s an abundance of cyclists on the roadways here in Philadelphia. We now have the stands where you can rent a bike for a morning or afternoon and cycle around the city so I’m seeing more and more people on bicycles as time goes by. It really is something that we all have to pay attention to and be familiar with to avoid the serious injuries that can occur with these types of accidents.”

Spear says his car accidents law firm recently settled a case before trial where a cyclist was struck by a bus. The client was seriously injured and sustained head injuries and suffered cognitive losses. “The client was happy, the client was satisfied but at the end of the day all we can really recover for clients is money. We really can’t make them better. We can’t make them whole again so I just caution everyone to just be as careful as possible,” Spear says.

If you or a family member were injured while riding a bicycle due to a negligent driver in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, contact Philadelphia car accident lawyer Rand Spear today at 888-373-4LAW or through his website for a free consultation. You can discuss what happened, how the law may apply and your best options for obtaining compensation for your injuries.

Choosing The Right Forensic Examiner

Choosing The Right Forensic Examiner

Dallas, Texas, 08/22/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Forensic analysis may seem like a daunting task, but do not let it deter you.  Although typically used in investigating computer crimes, forensic analysis has become prevalent in civil cases, especially employment law disputes.  As computers are used more regularly in the workplace, employers are finding themselves conducting forensics on employee’s desktops and laptops more frequently than ever.  The caveat, however, is choosing the right forensic examiner and getting them involved from the onset.

Selecting a qualified expert may be critical to your case.  An experienced and knowledgeable forensic analyst will ensure proper collection and processing of evidence and metadata, which in turn makes it easier to use such information at trial. An inexperienced expert cannot only cause the omission of evidence but can sometimes permanently destroy relevant information during the collection process. Thus, in choosing an expert their credentials are important. Make sure they are familiar with the tasks at hand and can competently and coherently convey their forensic results to a layperson.  Moreover, choose a neutral examiner. While this may seem unfavorable, a neutral examiner will cover all bases rather than focus on the tasks at hand.

To speak to an employment law attorney about workplace matters, send an email to debra@clousedunn.com or call (214) 239-2705. This article is presented by the Dallas employment law lawyers at Clouse Dunn LLP.

HM King Mohammed VI ‘s Speech On King And People’s Revolution Day

HM King Mohammed VI 's Speech On King And People's Revolution Day

Bethesda, maryland, USA, 08/22/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

On August 20, 2016, Morocco celebrated the 63rd anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People. On this historical occasion, HM King Mohammed VI delivered a strong speech to the nation. During his speech, the Sovereign emphasized that the commemoration of the Revolution of the King and the People is a constantly renewed revolution whose torch is carried generation after generation.

‘’Besides having deep-rooted national significance relating to the Moroccan citizens’ strong attachment to their King and their sacrifice for the freedom and independence of the homeland, the celebration of this event is also associated with Morocco being part of the Maghreb and of Africa,’’ the King underlined. In this regard, the Sovereign recalled that the Revolution of the King and the People was characterized by coordination and solidarity between the leaders of the Moroccan resistance movement and the Algerian Liberation Front.

‘’Today, given the current circumstances facing Arab peoples and the Maghreb region, we are in great need of that spirit of solidarity to enable us to rise to common development and security challenges,’’ the Monarch noted. ‘’We hope that the commitment and sincere solidarity which have always bound the Algerian and Moroccan peoples will be rekindled so that we may continue to work together, honestly and in good faith, to serve Arab and Maghreb causes and rise to challenges in Africa,’’ concluded the King.

The Sovereign also seized this opportunity to pay tribute to Africa. ”For Morocco, Africa means more than just being part of a geographical area, or having historical bonds with the continent. Africa also means sincere affection, appreciation, close human and spiritual relations as well as tangible solidarity. Furthermore, Africa is the natural extension of Morocco and the embodiment of the country’s strategic depth,” the Monarch underscored. ‘’This multi-dimensional relationship puts Morocco in the center of Africa; it also means Africa holds a special place in Moroccans’ hearts. For this reason, Africa has been given top priority in Morocco’s foreign policy,‘’ stated the Sovereign.

The King went on by underlining that Morocco was one of the first countries of the South to adopt a genuine solidarity-based policy regarding sub-Saharan migrants. ‘’This integrated policy, which is rooted in humanitarian values, is designed to make sure migrants’ rights and dignity are safeguarded,’’ said the King.

The Monarch concluded his speech by calling on Moroccans living abroad to remain firmly committed to their religious values and to their time-honored traditions as they face up to the extremist and terrorist phenomenon which has nothing to do with their culture or background. ‘’Those who engage in terrorism, in the name of Islam, are not Muslims. Their only link to Islam is the pretexts they use to justify their crimes and their folly ‘’ the King pointed out.

In this respect, the Sovereign called on Muslims, Christians, and Jews to close ranks in order to tackle all forms of extremism, hatred, and reclusiveness.

The Hidden Danger Of Air Quality in Indoor Firing Ranges

The Hidden Danger Of Air Quality in Indoor Firing Ranges

Riverdale, NJ, 08/12/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Indoor gun ranges are popular with both professionals who use guns as a part of their job and hobbyists who just enjoy guns and shooting. They provide a safe place to practice, sheltered from unpredictable winds, extreme temperatures and all types of inclement weather.  It is estimated there are over 10,000 indoor shooting ranges patronized by gun enthusiasts scattered throughout the United States.

What many patrons of gun ranges don’t realize, though, is that there is a hidden danger present in these places where enthusiasts come to practice and evaluate equipment. Safety, of course, is a huge concern at all gun ranges. There are strict rules that must be followed by everyone in the building. Building architects employ special designs to minimize the chance of bullets ricocheting or otherwise flying into any area where they could endanger life. But even with all of these precautions, bullets and guns can still be deadly, just not in the way you might think.

Slow Poisoning With Serious Effects

There’s a phrase that was popular when cowboy westerns were the biggest genre coming out of Hollywood. At least once in just about any western film, you’d hear some rough and tumble gunslinger utter the words, “I’m gonna fill you full of lead.” This was, of course, a reference to the fact that bullets were, and still are, made with lead.

Certainly, a hunk of lead flying toward you at the speed of sound can be deadly, but that’s not the only way lead can kill you. We have taken steps to remove lead from many things in our daily lives because of the poisonous effect it has when it accumulates in the human body. At one time there was lead in the pipes that carried drinking water, in the gas we used to fuel our cars, even in the pencils we gave to school children so they could write.

Lead poisoning is something that usually occurs over time, as a result of repeated exposure to small amounts of lead. Although treatment can remove lead from the body to prevent further poisoning, any damage already done is irreversible. In some cases, lead poisoning can be fatal. It has been proven to create symptoms such as abdominal pains, fatigue, high blood pressure, memory loss, kidney dysfunction and other severe forms of mental and physical impairment.

The Air Feels Heavy

At indoor firing ranges, lead is quite literally everywhere, if air conditioners are not maintained properly, and could contaminate even in the air you breathe. Every time a gun is fired, minute particles of lead, some less than 100 nanometers in size or nearly 100 times smaller than a red blood cell in your body, as well as other chemicals released by the combusting gunpowder, are released into the air. More lead is broken loose and released into the air when bullets impact with a surface. All of the energy from that bullet impaction causes millions of tiny particles to be discharged into the air throughout the indoor range. Some particles will remain airborne while others will settle and coat surfaces like walls and floors.

In December of 2013, The Center for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a study at a gun range and store in California. Of 6 employees at the store, three were found to have levels of lead in their blood high enough to be deemed unsafe. Every single surface that was tested showed positive for lead. In addition, all employees were found to have lead on their hands and shoes at the time of leaving work to go home. Employees were actually spreading the contamination back to their homes. All of this occurred in a shop that followed a strict regimen of daily cleaning, as well as a weekly “deep cleaning” and used an air circulation system that constantly pulled fresh air into the building, never recirculating the air inside.

Circulation Without Filtration Is Not Enough

In environments like this, circulating or refreshing air from outside is not enough. Sufficient air filtration and properly designed ventilation systems are absolutely essential to maintaining a safe environment for staff and customers. The surest way to remove the lead and other chemicals from the environment is to filter it from the air before dangerous substances have a chance to settle on surfaces, and spread further through human contact. Secondly, insuring proper air movement throughout the indoor range is just as important as the air filtration products you are using.

Camfil firing range air filtration products are designed specifically for environments where toxic substances are a part of the day to day business. Camfil filters are capable of removing the microscopic particles of lead from the air to help ensure the highest level of protection. In addition to superior air filtration, they provide increased cost savings over competitive products by providing a significantly longer filtration service life, reducing the quantity of filters that need to be ordered and disposed of, reducing the power consumption of fans and circulation equipment. From replacement filters to complete air filtration systems and analysis, Camfil has a solution to fit any need. Camfil gun range air filters capture more lead dust and last longer than any other filter on the market today.

Top Causes Of Atlanta Truck Accidents Reports 1800 Truck Wreck

Top Causes Of Atlanta Truck Accidents Reports 1800 Truck Wreck

Dallas, 08/12/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Atlanta, GA — Every time you turn on the television, open a newspaper, or scroll through the trending stories online, it seems like the media is reporting another serious truck accident. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reports that almost 4,000 American lives are lost every year due to 18-wheeler crashes. That translates to 11 fatal truck crashes every single day.

Most drivers know all too well the harrowing feeling of white-knuckling it past a swaying tractor-trailer. These trucks are the largest vehicles on the road. Weighing up to 80,000 pounds, each truck is a potential weapon in a crash.

As Atlanta truck accident lawyers at 1800 Truck Wreck,  we handle all types of tractor-trailer accident cases. Although these horrific crashes can be caused by all kinds of factors, certain cases tend to show up over and over again.

Truck Driver Fatigue

Drowsy driving is a problem for all motorists. As a nation, Americans are chronically tired. Simply put, few of us get enough sleep to truly be safe on the road. According to the National Sleep Foundation, about 168 million Americans admit to driving when they’re drowsy. Most drivers have nodded off at the wheel at least once or twice. When you’re driving a semi-truck, however, it’s especially important to be well-rested.

It’s also the law. Federal regulations place rigid restrictions on how many hours truck drivers are allowed to drive before they are required to take a break to sleep. More than that, truck drivers are now also required to switch from paper logbooks to electronic log books to cut down on inaccurate hours of service reporting.

Unbalanced Loads and Defective Equipment

When you’re passing a semi and its trailer, you probably don’t give much thought to what’s inside it. After you’ve seen one silver rectangular trailer you’ve seen them all. On the inside, however, these trailers carry everything from computers and furniture to toys and livestock. To maximize productivity, trucks are usually filled to the brim.

It is critical for a truck’s load to be properly balanced. The trailer’s contents will invariably shift as the truck moves down the road. Because a trailer’s center of gravity is so high, even a small shift in its cargo can pull it off course. In the worst case scenario, a trailer tips, resulting in a jackknife.  

Inclement Weather

It doesn’t take snow and ice to make for hazardous driving conditions. Anyone who has driven in an Atlanta rainstorm knows how dangerous the roads can be, especially after a dry spell. Accumulations of oil and debris can make the roads incredibly slick. Truck drivers operate under strict deadlines, which can sometimes cause them to push the boundaries of safety. Just like any motorist, it’s important for them to adjust their speed and maneuvering when the weather turns bad.  

Operator Error

Driving is an activity that requires your full attention. It may not feel like it, but maneuvering a car is one of the more complex tasks the average person undertakes. It requires concentration, quick decision-making, and fine motor skills. Even a moment’s lapse in concentration can mean disaster. If you have ever drifted into another lane, you know how easy it is to overcorrect and cause your vehicle to swerve violently as you struggle to bring your car under control.

In a semi, this type of overcorrection is magnified. Trucks are much taller and heavier than the typical car. Therefore, it’s much easier for them to careen out of control, causing a serious accident.

How an Atlanta Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help You

Tractor-trailer accident cases usually result in devastating injuries. If you are dealing with the aftermath of a truck accident, don’t do it alone. Our Atlanta truck accident lawyers are here to help. Call 24/7 to speak with an experienced truck accident attorney about your case. We offer free consultations.

Boca Raton Car Accident Lawyer On Vicarious Liability Of Parents Of Teen Drivers

Boca Raton Car Accident Lawyer On Vicarious Liability Of Parents Of Teen Drivers

Boca Raton, FL, USA, 08/18/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

For teens, the day they finally get their drivers license is one of the most exciting days of their lives. However, with this newfound freedom and independence comes great responsibility that is too often neglected. Teens frequently fail to recognize the high risk associated with reckless driving, and the extent of the damage they can cause themselves and their parent’s pockets, reports Boca Raton car accident lawyer Joseph Osborne.

In fact, this risk is so high that The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the biggest factor of death among teens is reckless driving. Young drivers, ages 15-24 represent only fourteen percent of the US population, however, they account for nearly 30%, about nineteen billion dollars, of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries nationwide. These costs more often than not fall to the parents as a result of the vicarious liability law.

Despite their adolescence, teens are held to the same standards as all other drivers, reports car accident injury lawyer Osborne. The driver involved in a car accident in which they are at fault as a result of careless driving is financially responsible for the accident due to civil liability. However, since parents are usually the ones purchasing cars for their children, the fault, and responsibility for the accident extends beyond the teenage driver to the owner of the vehicle if the teen is driving a car that is registered in the parents’ name.

Our car accident law firm has seen many cases in which vicarious liability leaves parents financially vulnerable. One case example involves a college student driver who was driving a car that was registered in his father’s name. The teenager got into an accident with a motorcycle with two passengers. Although the driver originally thought the collision was nothing more than a fender bender, the crash caused the passenger in the back to lose her foot. The passenger was immediately rushed to the hospital and is now pursuing a lawsuit against the driver. However, due to the ownership of the vehicle, the father is legally responsible for all damages caused by the accident.

So how can a parent limit their liability?

The best car accident lawyers would recommend that in order to protect their assets, parents should not let teens drive a car that is registered in their name. If the car is gifted to the teenager then the car should be registered in the name of the teenager and a sufficient insurance policy purchased. This ultimately makes the teenager the owner of the vehicle and responsible for that vehicle in the case of an accident. Without ownership of the car, the laws imposing vicarious liability will not apply to the parent.
