A closer look at plea bargains and why they exist

If there was a formal trial for every single criminal in Oregon who was ever accused of committing a crime, there would be too much work and not enough professionals to take care of the job. As such, it is imperative that legal professionals find alternative means to leveling just punishments on those who have broken the law, without wasting time and resources in time-consuming negotiations about a criminal's proposed punishment.

Why do judges make mistakes?

Receiving an unfair verdict in an Oregon courtroom may result from a lack of evidence, or from a false witness. However, it is possible that the judge in your case made a mistake. How does this happen?

Why is attention to detail so important when filing an appeal?

Going through a criminal trial in Oregon has been emotionally and mentally challenging. If an issue arose with the presentation of evidence, you may have felt devastated as you watched your case fall apart. In this case, you may naturally believe that if your trial had been fair, you would have prevailed, and so you prepare to file an appeal with the Oregon Court of Appeals.

A prosecutor's mistakes led to a successful appeal

A driver in Oregon who receives a DUI conviction may want a new trial, but unless there was a legal error made during the first one, there may not be grounds to appeal the judge's decision. FindLaw points out that the error is not typically a mistaken fact, but an error in procedure or a suppression of evidence.

What information should be in an appellate brief

You are unhappy with the verdict of your Oregon criminal trial, which came about because the judge allowed the prosecution to present evidence that should have been suppressed, because your attorney was not allowed to provide important evidence to the jury, or due to some other reason. The legal team at the law office of David J. Celuch has helped many people to create and file an appellate brief to take the case before the Oregon Court of Appeals.

An off-campus brawl and the fear of Measure 11 sentencing

Fights that break out among college students are not unusual. There could be a tussle among the members of competitive fraternities after a baseball game, or a brawl that breaks out at an off-campus bar. However, if the fight becomes vicious or weapons are used, the resulting assault charges could be serious.

Immigration consequences of a criminal conviction

President Trump's immigration ban was big news in the early days of the new administration. This news story was more prominent than another executive order also signed in the first few weeks of the new presidency. This order expanded the population of immigrants which could be picked up for deportation. According to U.S. immigration authorities, raids are now targeting undocumented immigrants with criminal records, but those without criminal records can be deported. However, even lawful permanent residents have reason to be concerned, especially if they have a criminal conviction on their record.
