Sex crime arrests in 2015

If you or someone you are close to has been arrested for an alleged sex crime in Connecticut, you are understandably quite nervous about what to expect.

Examining the penalties associated with hacking

According to the United States Department of Justice, hacking charges can carry serious consequences for those accused, including prison time and stiff fines.
