Ross W. Ulbricht, the founder of Silk Road, an online drug outlet for the sale of cocaine, heroin, LSD and various other illegal drugs, was hit hard in a lifetime sentence by U.S. District Court Justice Katherine B. Forrest. In 3 years of operation utilizing the virtual currency Bitcoin, Ulbricht made millions through approximately 1.5 million drug transactions with thousands of different seller accounts and more than 100,000 purchasers.  The prosecution of Ulbricht is groundbreaking in that he is considered to be the architect of a method of using the internet to "facilitate criminal transactions."
Mr. Ulbricht was sentenced to life in prison for his role as what prosecutors described as “the kingpin of a worldwide digital drug-trafficking enterprise.”

Refusing a chemical test as part of an arrest for a DWI related offense leads to an administrative hearing at the local DMV.  In Westchester County, it is now even a tougher decision to refuse as the DA's office has changed its policies with regard to refusals in DWI cases.

Rollover accidents are a particular hazard to truck drivers in the United States due to a combination of antiquated roadways, poor signage, major traffic congestion, distracted driving, overwork and inconsistent seat belt usage.

Bruce Jenner may not be facing criminal charges in the February 7th fatal crash he was involved in on the Pacific Coast Highway, but he may be looking at significant wrongful death and personal injury claims with reportedly inadequate insurance coverage to protect his assets.

2015 has been a very dangerous year for construction accidents in New York City.  Eight people have died in construction accidents this year, equaling the total of all such fatalities in 2014, and it was a true miracle that there were no fatalities when a 12 ton heating and air conditioner unit fell thirty stories on Madison Avenue on May 31, 2015.  One of the main reasons for the increased construction dangers is the building boom in NYC,  the likes of which hasn't been seen since 2008.
Eight people have died in construction-related accidents this year, as many as in all of 2014. Most in the industry agree that a simple equation is at work: The more construction, the more danger.

Texting infractions are way up in New York State, particularly in Westchester County, where there were 50% more texting tickets issued in 2014 than in 2013.  Penalties include 5 points on your driver's license and a $200.00 fine for first time violators, and much more severe penalties for youthful drivers younger than 21.

In light of the tragic Metro-North railroad crossing accident on February 3, 2015 in which a married mother of three and five train passengers were killed, some Westchester County towns, including the Town of New Castle, are making safety improvements without waiting for federal funding.

On February 27th, there was another in the long line of fatal wrong way crashes on Hudson Valley highways.  The crash, which killed 17 year NYPD veteran Paul Duncan, was at least the third on the Sprain/Taconic parkways in the last 5 1/2 years that have claimed 9 lives.

Mayor de Blasio has implemented the "Vision Zero" program to reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries in New York City.  As part of this program, the enhanced Failure to Yield law, which is resulting in the arrests of M.T.A. bus drivers involved in accidents with pedestrians, is facing opposition by transportation unions, who believe it is unfairly enforced in many situations that should not result in criminal charges.

I have known Joseph Villanueva for several years. He is an excellent and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer who is dedicated to obtaining the best results for his clients. I highly recommend him to anyone who has been charged with a crime or traffic infraction.
