Khristopher Hood Story Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyer Weighs in

When the Dallas Morning News recently featured the case of

it highlighted one of the most disturbing aspects of Texas’s criminal justice system.

Hood was locked up when he was just 11-years-old and hasn’t seen freedom since. That’s about to change next year when he will be released in his 30s.

The article highlighted many of the downsides of locking up kids when they are so young. It deprives them of learning to function on their own as adults and keeping down a job after being released.

The article explained how Khristopher Hood was just 11 when he was locked up for molesting two younger female relatives and how he cried alone in his cell.

Hood is now 32. He has been behind bars ever since, The Dallas Morning News reported he recently earned parole and will be released by the state next year after nine months of intensive therapy.

Hood was sentenced to 40 years in 1995. Much of his childhood was spent in state juvenile lockup. When he turned 17 he was transferred to an adult prison.

Had it not been for the Dallas Morning News series “Kids or Criminals” which featured a number of inmates who grew up incarcerated in Texas and what happened to them when they got out, he might have remained locked up for longer.

“Because kids like Hood experience their teen years and young adulthood in prison, they miss out on what most learn during that time. They’ve never held a job, found a place to live or gone on a date,” the Dallas Morning News reported.

The series noted about 2,100 prisoners in Texas are serving time for offenses committed between the ages of 10 and 16. If Texas counted 17-year-olds as minors, as is the case in many other states, the number would grow to nearly 8,000.

The series reported on how youngsters undergo dramatic changes when they are incarcerated.

Most of those who are locked up at an early age have committed very serious crimes. However, their age means they will be released at some point.

Criticism of the system came from Christina Melton Crain, a former chairwoman of the board that oversees the prison system in the Lone Star State. She said inmates like Hood return to society lacking the skills they need to function. It’s hard enough for any inmate who is released after a long sentence, harder still for those who were locked up when they were children.

“They are basically being raised in the prison system. They don’t have the benefit of growing up in the community,” stated Crain, who now heads up the nonprofit group Unlocking Doors, which helps offenders adjust to society by assisting them in finding jobs and places to live.Hood has not received therapy since being transferred to an adult prison and will have to register as a sex offender on his release for the rest of his life.

Not all of the children who are locked up in Texas have done anything wrong. Earlier this year, In These Times reported how illegal immigrants and their kids are being locked up at camps near San Antontio

When A Car Crash Results in the Deaths of Multiple Members of the Same Family

According to Dallas based car wreck lawyer Amy Witherite of the Eberstein Witherite law firm, car accidents that result in the deaths of multiple people of the same family unfortunately occur with more frequency than many expect.

Says the personal injury lawyer “statistics show that more than 30,000 fatal car crashes occur in the United States every year. This includes a significant number of multiple fatalities involving one or more people who are related.” Witherite says her firm has worked on several cases throughout the years that involve families facing an array of challenges in dealing with multiple losses at once. One of the most recent cases involved a truck crash that killed a mother and two others. The crash impacted multiple generations of the same family, and her firm represented 8 of the 11 people involved.

The Texas based attorney further states of the crash “this accident was one that will always stand out to me as one of the most devastating our law firm has ever taken on.”

Surviving family members of individuals who have experienced multiple losses due to a car crash can find support for overcoming both personal and financial challenges in multiple ways. These include counseling, support groups, and even contacting a personal injury attorney for help with obtaining legal compensation for any damages that accompany their losses.

The recent car crash in Dallas remains under investigation. According to the WFAA report, beer bottles were found near the truck driven by the suspect; however, it was not clear at the time whether alcohol had played a role.

Angela-Coates-Hot-Mugshot-237x300.jpg

New Orleans, LA, USA, 12/23/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

(MIAMI FLA)  Reputation Management Firm RemoveSlander.org has just announced a limited time free offer that will remove Mugshots.com from Google, Yahoo, and Bing. This offer has been made available for all new clients who enroll in RemoveSlander.org Tier B Mugshot Removal Service Plan or any top tier plan.

With this option newly enrolled clients of RemoveSlander.org can take advantage of affordable rates to remove their mugshots from Google, Yahoo, and Bing, while enjoying a 100% Money Back Guarantee.

The Mugshot Problem

Mugshot Websites like Florida.Arrests.org, Texas.Arrests.org and Mugshots.com collect mugshots photos from the databases of the local Sherriff’s Office, and then re-publish those same public records. Mugshots.com charges administrative removal fees starting at $399 just to removal one photo from their online Mugshot database.

Florida.Arrests.org and Texas.Arrests.org offer no paid options to remove mugshots from their online archive – which means arrested individuals run the risk of having their mugshots posted in Google permanently.  The other side effect of Transparency Laws in States like Florida, Georgia, Texas, and North Carolina is mugshot websites are not required to report the resolution of cases, therefore the information posted their websites often fail to mention the positive outcomes of court cases.

RemoveSlander.org Mugshot Removal

Since 2009 RemoveSlander.org has led the way in offering guaranteed solutions for permanent mugshot removal at affordable rates, and this latest offer is sure to distance them from their competitors. Confirmed by the New York Times (Oct 5, 2013) as an industry  leader in Reputation Management,  RemoveSlander.org has become them most trusted name in the mugshot removal industry.

Tyronne Jacques CEO of RemoveSlander.org says his latest offer to remove mugshots websites for free was created for working class professional clients – who represent over 80% of his clientele.

“I often share with my audience at SEO Conferences that criminals never have no need for Reputation Management or Mugshot Removal Services, because they know their career in crime is far from over. Our clients represent those men and women who made DUI mistakes, paid their fines, and now desire to protect their online reputation from mugshot websites.”

CEO Tyronne Jacques went on to say that he plans to offer his free Mugshots.co Removal Service until March of 2016 January marks the beginning of the corporate turnover season and many of his clients   the will need to present the best image of themselves in Google.

“Future employers will only pay for a background after they have searched Google First. Google is free information about a prospective employee and unlike Licensed Background Check services – Google is not regulated. In the unregulated world none as The Iinternet – whatever the internet says about you could be perceived as the truth. At RemoveSlander.com we take pride in the fact that 92% of our clients never return for additional services – nor do we charge any of them should they need us in the future.” CEO Tyronne Jacques went on to say.

RemoveSlander.org is offering mugshot removal services designed to delete all mugshots website links from all major search engines. The company offers a money back guarantee that provides an unconditional refund if they fail to remove the mughot links submitted by their clients.

Eberstein Witherite Report Motorist Killed in Multi-Vehicle Crash in Fort Worth

A Pennsylvania motorist was recently killed in a multi-vehicle crash in Fort Worth. Reports say the crash involved five vehicles in the southbound lanes of I-35 near Heritage Trace Parkway. A tanker truck reportedly hit the motorist’s vehicle from behind in a construction zone.

Source: Fort Worth Star-Telegram Report “Pennsylvania driver killed in multivehicle wreck in north Fort Worth”

“The victim was identified as Mark Boland, 66, of Huntington, Pa. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:35 a.m., according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office… Five vehicles were involved in the wreck in the southbound lanes of I-35W near Heritage Trace Parkway.”

The truck hit the victim’s 2015 Hyundai, which prompted the car to hit a red Kia Sportage, which in turn crashed into a Ford Escape. The Ford in turn collided with an 18-wheeler.

Four other people were injured in the accident and transported to various hospitals.

Two other people were taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, one person was transported to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth, and one was taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Alliance, officials said.

Examining the Legal Complexities of Multi-Vehicle Crashes

Traffic accidents involving several vehicles or, what are more commonly referred to as chain reaction crashes occur with more frequency than some expect. Investigating these types of accidents are often challenging because the actions of multiple drivers must be assessed to determine the full scope of liability. Many people assume that the person whose actions triggered the crash are the only ones that are fully examined; however, according to Fort Worth personal injury lawyer Amy Witherite of the Eberstein Witherite LLP, depending on the state one is in, more factors are investigated for civil legal claims.

Says Witherite “for civil claims in Texas each party’s negligence is looked at when considering who bears liability in a chain reaction crash. Therefore even if one person is proven to have initiated the crash, the responses of each driver involved are also determining factors for who is responsible for the damages of whom.”

The Fort Worth lawyer says that this is one reason many who are involved in chain reaction accidents opt to hire an attorney because of the extent to which related investigations must be carried out. The attorney suggests that those who are involved in these types of accidents consider taking the following steps in the immediate aftermath for their protection.

  • Don’t flee the scene, call for police help – Remaining at the scene until police and medical personnel arrive to offer assistance is not only a potentially life saving act, it can also help ensure that evidence is preserved for investigating the crash circumstances and ensuring that a driver does not end up being accused of a hit-and-run.
  • Seek prompt medical attention – Those involved in a traffic accident should always seek medical attention as soon as possible even if signs of serious injury are not immediately apparent. Says Witherite “it isn’t safe to risk allowing a possible internal injury to go unchecked by not immediately getting medical help.”
  • Take pictures – Photos are helpful evidence in the event that one chooses to file an insurance claim, to help illustrate certain facts provided in police reports, and also in case one chooses to take civil legal action later on.

Police had yet to determine why the tanker in the aforementioned accident was not able to avoid the crash at the time of the report. The crash resulted in lane closures for more than three hours as authorities investigated the scene.

West Palm Beach Criminal Defense Attorney Brings Passion to the Job

Screen_Shot_2015-10-13_at_11.13.41_AM.png

West Palm Beach, FL, 12/17/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

SUMMARY: Andrew D. Stine West Palm Beach Criminal Defense Attorney has a heartfelt passion for defending the rights of criminal defendants, due to his personal experience with the criminal justice system.

Andrew D. Stine West Palm Beach Criminal Defense Attorney has a heartfelt passion for defending the rights of criminal defendants, due to his personal experience with the criminal justice system.

Those facing criminal charges in South Florida, are not only dealing with law enforcement and the prosecutor’s office, but also with Florida’s punitive criminal statutes that emphasize imprisonment and punishment upon a conviction. West Palm Beach Criminal Defense Attorney, Andrew D. Stine, brings a drive and passion to defend those arrested. Stine discusses why he practices Criminal Defense Law and how he helps his clients in a recent Google+ Hangout.

Stine has been defending the rights of criminal defendants since 2001, when he was hired out of law school by the Office of the Public Defenders in West Palm Beach. Its there, Stine says he learned how to be an effective criminal defense attorney, honing his skills from writing motions,  making legal arguments, conducting trials and preparing appeals for his clients. In 2003, Stine opened his own law practice, where he focuses on defending the rights of criminal defendants charged under state and federal law throughout Florida.

Stine says he chose this work of defending those charged with crimes, because in the past, he was wrongly arrested and unlawfully convicted of assaulting a Pennsylvania State Trooper. Before this most unfortunate event, Stine joined the U.S. Army right after high school and was in his home state, when the false arrest occurred. Stine says, he went to trial because he wasn’t guilty of the accusations and in good conscience could not accept a plea bargain for a crime he did not commit. Due to perjured testimony and falsified documents by the Pennsylvania State Police, Stine says he was falsely convicted and unlawfully sentenced to ten years in Pennsylvania State Correctional Facility.

Attorney Stine says, he spent a year and half in prison at SCI Dallas, before the charges against him were dismissed on direct appeal, by the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. The trooper accusing Stine of the assault; was later convicted of multiple drug charges, assaulting a federal drug enforcement agent, selling illegal narcotics and eventually pled guilty to the same and ended up doing a lengthy prison sentence! “This event sent me in the direction of criminal defense,” he says.

Stine says he planned to stay in the US Army working as an attorney, defending soldiers against criminal charges, as a Judge Advocate General Officer (JAG). But while on reserve duty with the PA Army National Guard, he was involved in a training accident that led to a severely injured back and neck. This accident occurred between Stine’s first and second years of Law School. While attending law school, Stine would have to commute to the US Army Hospital of Walter Reed in Washington D.C. for treatment, by train from New Haven, Connecticut and return back weekly to finish out his second year law school requirements. Stine was eventually discharged by the US Army and was awarded an honorable discharge and due to his injury and is a proud Disabled Veteran.

“Like myself and many individuals in the criminal justice system, who are facing criminal charges, the State and Federal Government brings false allegations against citizens and many times over charges the criminal defendant with bogus crimes in an attempt to get them too pled guilty to lesser crimes, conveyor justice, as Stine calls it. Stine’s philosophy in defending people from the government is: “I want to stand between the government and those individuals charged with crimes, so I can protect those individuals.” “I will preserve the mountain, which is what I see as the US Constitution, between the Government and the People. I am the people’s buffer between them and the Government.  

Working in the Public Defender’s office, Stine says he learned more than nuts and bolts of practicing law and preserving the mountain.  “I learned how to be passionate for those individuals, all the way from the county courts, through the circuit courts and finally within the appellate courts.

His passion for working for his clients doesn’t come from getting paid, but from his heart, “I was one of them. I was in their shoes, I know how humiliating it is to be arrested and how hard it is to tell those you know, your side of the story, not the one they hear on the news.

Stine says he sees himself protecting his clients and everyone else from overreaching by the oppressive government. He says, the State and Federal Constitutions give rights to individuals; and the same Constitution limits what Government may do and in fact restrains the Government and not the people.  

“The Constitution is much like a mountain. I see it as such, with me on one side and the government on the other. I must protect that mountain, because I’m not just protecting the rights of the accused charged with the crime, but I’m protecting all the rights, the mountain of rights, of all Floridians.”

If you or a loved one are being investigated, have been arrested or indicted on State or Federal criminal charges, Andrew D. Stine can help protect your rights with his knowledge, experience and passion to protect people from unwarranted criminal charges. Contact his office today. Call 561-880-4300.

Epic Fails: When Healthy New Year’s Resolutions Go Wrong

2016_Healthy_Resolutions.jpg

Addison, Texas, 12/28/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Nearly 90 percent of Americans who make New Year’s resolutions will fail. (Washington Post) As a leader in women’s health and wellness, Solis Mammography took a look at five of the biggest New Year’s resolution fails, with suggestions for ways to overcome bars set a bit too high.

For example, weight loss tops out the list. The problem is that, like men, women pledge dramatic changes instead of gradual habits that will stick. For instance, someone will fail with a month-long juice fast, where they might succeed if they cut back on dessert.

“Health and wellness resolutions are really about making important changes that affect your physical, mental and social well-being,” says Connie Oliver, vice president of marketing and client relations for Solis Mammography. “It’s not so much about shedding the muffin top, as it is cutting back on the muffins for breakfast and deciding oatmeal will fuel your day better. It’s about making long-term adjustments to how we live, so we can get more out of life.”

But people tend to set unreasonable goals and make absolute statements to motivate themselves, which has the opposite affect when you, say, break open a bag of chips when your resolution was NO CHIPS (Huffington Post). Here are five epic health and wellness resolution fails, and how you can stick to your resolutions:

1.    Fitting into your skinny jeans. According to statisicbrain.com, 38 percent of all New Year’s resolutions focus on weight loss. Unfortunately, women tend to unrealistically restrict themselves, quickly falling off the horse.

Instead, make healthier food choices; substitute water for soda, and start using a calorie counting program like Weight Watchers or My Fitness Pal to better understand the calories you are actually consuming. Many women underestimate the calories they put in their mouths.

2.    Run a half-marathon. Fitness goals are good, but unless you’ve successfully run a 10K, focusing on a half-marathon probably isn’t the best place to start.

Instead, work up to exercise. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends activity for at least 2.5 hours a week. Many women think “gym,” but starting with a walk outdoors is usually a good first step. Recruit a buddy who will hold you accountable. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. And make sure you talk to your doctor before starting anything strenuous.

3.    Conquering your to-do list by sacrificing sleep. Many women try to accomplish more with late nights and early mornings. But insufficient sleep is associated with a number of chronic diseases and conditions (CDC).

Instead, remove TVs and gadgets from your bedroom, create a quiet relaxing environment, and try to schedule your sleep. Adults need 7-8 hours. And remember – sleep is a necessity, not a luxury.

4.    Stop drinking. For some, the need to stop drinking is life or death. Others realize they overindulge and decide to quit cold turkey. You’ll need to inventory your lifestyle, and talk to your doctor to decide which category you’re in. Studies show that if you can consistently drink two drinks without needing anymore alcohol, you are in a safe zone. But if two drinks consistently trigger the need for more, you might have a problem.

Instead of going it alone, if you fall into the latter category, get help. Alcohol is a real addiction, and a resolution to abruptly stop isn’t going to work. There are a lot of organizations to help.

5.    An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Only go to the doctor when you spike a fever? No news is good news, right? Wrong!

Instead, keeping up with regular doctor visits and tests can help you live longer and healthier (WebMD). For example, twice a year dental visits, annual pap smears, vaccines, blood pressure, mammograms starting at 40 and colonoscopies starting at 50 are examples of things you should schedule regularly.

“Screenings are important for early detection, so if an issue is discovered, treatment is easier,” says Oliver. “And with technology constantly advancing, many screenings are much more accurate and sometimes easier than they used to be. For example, 2D mammograms are the standard, but newer 3D mammograms – also known as tomosynthesis – take a much more detailed view of the breast and have been shown to significantly reduce the number of false positives and recalls for additional testing.”

3DR-RothmanLogo.jpg

Philadelphia, PA, 12/22/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Journal of Arthroplasty Study Finds Rothman Institute Most Published Orthopaedic Practice in the Country on Hip and Knee Replacement

Ranked First in Top Three Major Orthopaedic Journals

December 21, 2015Rothman Institute is the most widely published orthopaedic practice on hip and knee replacement, according to a recent study in the Journal of Arthroplasty. The study, authored by physicians at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, assigned points based on the first and last authors of the study, the institution and the level of evidence in three major orthopaedic journals. During the last five years Rothman Institute published the most studies in all three peer-reviewed publications, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Clinical Orthopaedic and Related Research, and Journal of Arthroplasty. In total, Rothman Institute had 44 more authorships on studies than the next highest group.

“This is a really special recognition for our joint team and research department,” said Alexander R. Vaccaro, M.D., Ph.D., MBA, President of Rothman Institute. “Their dedication to the advancement of the literature and their patients is unparalleled. I’m sure this acknowledgement will only spur them on to do even more in the future.”

“From its founding, Rothman Institute has been an academically oriented organization with a deep commitment to research,” said Matthew S. Austin, M.D., Director of Joint Replacement Services, Rothman Institute. “Our practice takes great pride in publishing the latest evidence-based medicine and the trickle-down effect it has on our fellowship program is substantial. The unique research opportunities available here attract an elite pool of fellowship candidates each year. Residents applying for fellowship in adult joint reconstruction understand we have the key infrastructure in place to conduct high-level research and publish it. We couldn’t be prouder that our hard work in the area of research was recognized by an independent third party.”

As the population continues to age, initial hip and knee replacements, and subsequent revisions will continue to increase, necessitating not only the need for care of this population, but also research advancing the proven science on the subject. Orthopaedic practices offering the opportunities to pursue this research can often be a deciding factor for fellowship candidates who become the attending surgeons of tomorrow.

The authors note, “this study is the first that we are aware of to evaluate academic productivity of attending surgeons associated with adult reconstruction fellowships.”

Rothman Institute was first in authorship analysis in all three journals surveyed (879 articles):

  • Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery
  • Rothman Institute                             18
  • Mayo Clinic                                         14

“Conducting high-level research is a time-consuming process, requiring strict dedication, but is very rewarding in the sense it is the apex of medical education and drives improvements in the sub-specialty of adult hip and knee reconstruction, which is then translated to our patients” said Javad Parvizi, M.D., Director of Clinical Research, Rothman Institute. “As an organization we have made it a priority to invest significant resources and infrastructure into our research endeavors. Evidence-based medicine, what we can prove is best and safest for our patients, is our goal. This relentless pursuit of knowledge directly impacts patient care and provides our fellows with invaluable experience that they can apply to their own practice following fellowship.”

Newly Released Distance To Heaven Calculated In Miles Takes Logical Look at Merry Christmas, Christianity, Heaven…

Amid times when religion is being drawn out of public affairs, schools, and everyday life, author Gordon Speahl offers fresh perspective on heaven…

RICHARDSON, TX, DECEMBER 18, 2015 – Gordon Speahl is pleased to announce the launch of his new book, “Distance To Heaven Calculated in Miles: 333: A Biblically Derived Theory“. The book, which is now exclusively available on Amazon, shows readers the facts of both research and biblical truths, offering clarity in a time when religion is being highly scrutinized.

While Speahl says that his book is for audiences ages 18 years old and older, Distance To Heaven Calculated in Miles has been written in clear, concise language that anyone can understand. Speahl offers compelling and thought-provoking conclusions based on logical reasoning while offering a puzzling presentation that keeps readers engaged.

During a time when companies and big-name figures are openly denouncing Christianity, and society substitutes “Merry Christmas” for “Happy Holidays”, Speahl hopes that his book will offer answers for the truth-seekers. More information can be found at http://goo.gl/VvmnHP
