Heroin Use Surges: How Families, Arizona & the Nation Respond 

Signs that a loved one may be using heroin. 

+Sandro O. Monteblanco Thank-you sincerely for sharing this article and your extraordinary comments. 

Please review this insightful, eye-opening and educational article on this troubling epidemic. You will be shocked to learn the intricacies of this disease, the numbers involved but what the Attorney General is doing about it. Yet another solid hit by Counsel +James Novak originally shared to Plus Attorneys and Attorneys & Friends (Criminal - DUI Law ):
 
Heroin’s Death Row: How Families, Arizona, & the Nation are dealing with Fatalities in Epidemic Proportions

How to identify signs and symptoms of use and abuse; New National CDC statistics; Causes of Resurgence; Narcan lifesaving drug legislation; Arizona heroin laws, penalties, and criminal defense.

A big thanks goes out to +Lori Combs  Clinical and Forensic Nurse Consultant for her valuable contributions to this article. 

A 23-year-old suspect stood before a district court judge after his first arrest the night before, on heroin possession charges.

The young man made an impression on the judge that he would not soon forget.

The suspect was a respectful, polite, and receptive to the court’s orders. The judge looked at him and said firmly, “This drug wants to kill you”.  

He told the suspect that his desk was stacked with death certificates of defendants who died as a result of heroin or other opiates. The youth stood there listening intently with tears in his eyes. The judge assigned him an attorney, ordered random drug testing. The suspect thanked the judge on the way out. 

Two days later, the suspect died of a heroin overdose.

Article Overview 

In this article we discuss the families’, states, government, law enforcement, and legislative responses to the insurgence of heroin use, abuse, and addiction.   We outline alarming new statistics just released by the National Centers for Disease Control which reveal that use, abuse, and fatalities have risen what is being referred to as epidemic proportions throughout the USA. 

Article Features
 
In this article you will find the following features: 

• Tragedy Strikes Home:  A testimonial from a father aggrieved beyond words, at the loss of their beloved son to heroin; 

• Third Heroin Epidemic – New National CDC Statistics: heroin’s third epidemic; 

• Immediate Adverse Effects of Heroin Use and Overdose; 

• Long –Term and Other Effects of Heroin;

Questions for Discussion 

Do you think more lives would be saved if victim’ families, friends, or witnesses did not fear criminal arrest or prosecution if they called for help in an overdose situation?

Do you think more victims would seek substance abuse counseling and treatment and reach out to parents and guardians if they were granted immunity from disciplinary consequences, or fear of criminal prosecution?

What do you think are the primary factors that lead a person to begin using heroin, and how can they be addressed; and how much impact do you think family, friends, and educators have on a heroin user’s choices? 

How effective do you think criminal penalties are, on heroin use, possession and similar convictions?

Bank Customers May Get their Day in Court

+Donald Petersen Shared this update and curation about 
forced arbitration clauses. 

The only entity that benefits from them are the businesses. It circumvents...ignores rather, the consumer's right to trial in a dispute where an acceptable negotiation can't be reached. 

#ConsumerDebtAttorneyOrlandoFL  
 
One of the biggest benefits to the financial "services" industry derived from #forcredarbitration  is the ban on #classactions  included in most of these agreements.  

The consumers' odds on prevailing in an arbitration forum on a
$ 1,000 claim (typical of many statutory damage cases) is extremely low.

No wonder the banks force arbitration on their customers.

H/T to +Cathy Moran for sharing.

Workers Compensation Hearings La Plata Maryland 

+Laurie Robbins +Robbins & Associates PC; Law Firm Shared this by +Tucker Clagett +Andrews Bongar Gormley & Clagett 

+Tucker Clagett provides an inside look into what a claimant can expect at their Worker's Compensation Hearing in Southern Maryland and how to prepare for it.  
 
La Plata Maryland Workers' Comp Hearings

Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission hearings are located at regional hearing sites. They are not held at the Courthouse.  The one I usually go to is the Southern Maryland Regional Site in La Plata. Hearings held here are for people living in Charles County, St. Mary’s County, Calvert County, southern Prince George’s County, and even southern Anne Arundel County (for reasons that make no sense). 
The La Plata site is located in the building right next to Casey Jones Restaurant & Bar, which is a good local landmark. It is very close to the railroad tracks on Rte 6 in downtown La Plata. While the building it is located in sits directly on Route 6, the actual entrance is on the back side of the building, so it can be a little hard to find. Park in the large parking lot behind Casey Jones. Then look for the long wooden wheelchair ramp on the building to the left (west) of Casey Jones. It leads right into the hearing site.  For more on preparing for your hearing and a link to directions to the other WCC hearing sites in Maryland click below.
This article explains what happens at a Maryland Workers Compensation Commission Hearing, and how you can prepare for it. Please read it over now so you know what is going to happen at your hearing. Then read it over again right before your hearing so it is fresh in your mind. My office will automatically […]

Featuring Attorney +Steven M. Cron +Cron, Israels & Stark 

+Steven M. Cron Criminal Defense and DUI attorney in Santa Monica, CA is one of only 300 Certified Specialists in the states. He has over 40 years of experience defending the rights of clients and their charges.   

When the media needs a statement they often look to +Steven M. Cron of +Cron, Israels & Stark  for his opinion, because he is respected and knowledgeable, and people in the news want to know Steve's opinions about current legal cases.

#CertifiedSpecialistCriminalDefenseAttorneySantaMonicaCA  
 
Steve Cron, Esq. - Los Angeles Criminal Attorney on Justia

For 40 years, Steve has been in private practice in Santa Monica, representing those accused of criminal acts. He alone represents each of his clients, and he maintains personal relationships with the clients while representing them, and often, for many years after the attorney/client relationship has ended. When clients hire Steve, they know they will get his undivided attention, and that their case will not be handed off to another lawyer with less experience.

An arrest is often the result of recurring negative behavior, and sometimes such an experience can cause someone to reevaluate their lives and change negative behavior. For example, someone arrested for a DUI might come to realize that they have been drinking too much and take steps to curtail their drinking, or a domestic violence arrest might cause someone to begin anger management classes which help to save a relationship. 

Steve Cron has been certified as a Criminal Law Specialist by the State Board of Legal Specialization since 1984. There are only about 300 lawyers in the entire state who can call themselves Certified Criminal Law Specialists. HeÃâs also been recognized by his peers every year since the inception in Los Angeles Magazine's annual poll of Super Lawyers in Criminal Defense. Steve is an Adjunct Professor at the Pepperdine University School of Law, and head's a regular legal commentator for CNN, Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, and many other national and local magazines and newspapers. They ask Steve for his opinion, because he is respected and knowledgeable, and people in the news want to know Steve's opinions about current legal cases.

New Regulations Mandate Proximity Detectors for Continuous Mining Machines

+Jeffery Robinette +Robinette Legal Group, PLLC provides this very informative and timely update about new safety regulations that will help detect how close mining machines are to workers. 

+Jeffery Robinette outlines a lawsuit recently filed by a coal miner who suffered a tragic injury as a result of being trapped between two machines.  

Thank-you for this informative and timely article. +Robinette Legal Group, PLLC 
#PersonalInjuryAttorneyMorganTownWV  
 
In February 2015, a lawsuit was filed by an Ohio man who is now a partial amputee as a result of a continuous mining accident in 2013. The injured former coal miner contends the defendant intentionally exposed him to hazardous working conditions by disregarding safety regulations, failing to adequately train personnel and disregarding proper industry standards and policies.

The suit also states the three individual defendants were working while under the influence of alcohol and their employer had knowledge of their intoxication.  He is now suing the coal mining company and three of its workers. The suit alleges negligence, and a reckless disregard of, and failure to follow, safety regulations.

According to the complaint, the miner was working as a continuous miner operator side bolter at a coal mine facility when he was pinned between machine parts, suffering a crushed right arm that required amputation above the elbow.

The mine was cited by the Mine Safety and Health Administration for failure to comply with procedure.

Law Enforcement and Stingray Non-disclosure Agreements 

+Donald Petersen +Law Office of Donald E Petersen provides an update, and an excellent discussion about the massive Stingray cell phone tower survellance systems.  They gather information about accused suspects, as well as those not accused of a crime. Rather than disclosing their sources, prosecutors have been dismissing cases, and handing out reduced sentencing.

Thank-you for this post +Donald Petersen +Law Office of Donald E Petersen 

#ConsumerDebtAttorneyOrlandoFL   
 
Local "law enforcement" agencies have written non-disclosure agreements with Harris Corp. (the manufacturer of "Stingray" systems) and any "Alphabet Soup" agencies that help supply such mass surveillance equipment.

In a Tallahassee, FL case which attracted considerable attention because the Court ordered the local law enforcement to produce its documents concerning Stingray, the prosecutors reduced sentences to six months probation although the crime carried a four year mandatory minimum.  Defendants who had already plead guilty were released on probation.

No matter how adamantly law enforcement agencies deny it, Stingray appears to be a massive warrantless surveillance program.

I highly recommend obtaining discovery about the State's use of Stingray!    I believe that Stingray will become standard discovery in many cases.  Many of you may disagree.  If so, I'd like to hear from you.

What say you?  +The Law Office of James E. Novak +Kimberly Diego +Cron, Israels & Stark +David Cmelik +Mary Frances Prevost

I have gotten to know Mr. Novak in a professional capacity, and I must say as a veteran criminal defense attorney myself, he is one of the best I've seen. His trial experience as a former prosecutor in Maricopa county is evident, as he is is both knowledgeable as well as proficient in a courtroom. I have seen him defend clients quite aggressively in situations where he was protecting them from abuses of the system, as well as cordial and and amiable in negotiations where trial was not the best option. If you have been charged with a criminal offense or DWI/DUI in the Tempe area, contact attorney Novak, I couldn't recommend him more highly.

James… Read More > I had a very bad string of events happen to me from the result of an addiction to prescription pain killers. I had three different serious felony cases against me and the prosecutor wanted me to do 5 years in prison. James worked hard to have me serve less than three months and got some of the other charges dismissed. He aggressively negotiated with the prosecutor for probation in my case and saved me from the slammer. I would highly recommend James for anyone who is facing serious charges...I now have my life on track and back to normal. Thank you James for your most professional assistance!!!
