Sociology experts, victims’ rights groups, and criminal defense attorneys are all interested in learning what factors contribute to incidents of crime in any given community.

Criminal accusations in sports

Thousands of people throughout the state of Connecticut play sports on the recreational, semi-professional or professional level. And the majority of athletes may agree that practically any sport is associated with a degree of danger.
