Pages Only Contain General Information
These pages provide general information, not legal advice. We do not provide legal advice, representation, or referrals, nor can we answer questions about individual cases. If you have an attorney, you should talk to your attorney about the law and your case and not rely on information found on these pages, but your attorney may be interested in information found on these pages and should be interested in books listed on these pages.
We do our best to provide useful and accurate information about the law; however, please remember that laws change. We do not have the resources to make changes to these pages every time the law changes, nor can we afford to contact defendants or respond to questions. If you use these pages, you should make sure that the law has not changed since the pages were created.
In addition, different people can have differing opinions as to the meaning of a law. If you have questions about the law and how laws may affect your case, ask an attorney who has expertise in criminal law. If you want legal advice about your case, hire a lawyer to address your specific legal issues. Don’t ask us. If you use these pages for any purpose, it is your responsibility to make sure that the law applies to your situation.
