Have you been arrested and taken to jail? Well if you ever find yourself arrested and taken to jail, you may find this handy. You typically get one call when you're arrested and they let you out of the cell to make it. Only these days, some penitentiaries might use phone monitoring computers apps to record the phone call in entirety. Some systems might tell you, some might not alert you to this fact-- it depends! So this means that most places are going to record your phone call and it will be handed right over to either a prosecutor handling your case or law enforcement. Even if they don't actively record everything, they might be able to eavesdrop on your phone call at the touch of a button and what you can [...]

Has your child committed a crime and you don't know what to do? It's not that uncommon for minors to commit crimes.

When it comes to the phone and hitting the road, the two don't go together. What does go together, no matter how experienced you are, is paying attention to the road while you're operating a motor vehicle. If your focus is distracted, even for a few seconds, you could end up getting into an accident. In general, when you are driving a motor vehicle you should always try and keep your focus on the road. Cars move so quickly and cover so much ground in mere seconds that even a few moments of not paying attention could be deadly. Drivers who are using their phones while operating their vehicles are likely to take their eyes off the road for three seconds or more-- more than enough time in which to cause a horrible [...]

When it comes to your medical history, are you eligible for damages in a court of law when it comes to medical malpractice? Medical malpractice unfortunately is more common than you think. You are actually probably just as likely to get into a car accident as you are to experience malpractice as a patient when you are sick. Don't think that the numbers when it comes to injury and death from malpractice are that high? Up to 98,000 deaths of individuals were caused as a direct result of medical errors. This comes according to research published by the Institute for Medicine in 1999. These errors were common and routine enough to cause over a million injuries in the U.S. every single year. Yes, you heard that right. Over a million injuries. So if [...]

If you are using a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle, are you also prone to engage in other risky behaviors? Think about it-- would someone who is taking one risk be more likely to take others? According to a new study by researchers at MIT, the answer is yes. Drivers who use cell phones are far more likely to display other risky behaviors while on the road. The study was conducted by researchers at MIT who studies the behavior of 108 drivers in greater Boston. Half of them admitted to using their cell phones frequently while driving, while others said they 'rarely' were on the phone behind the wheel. Researchers found that the drivers who did engage in more frequent cell phone use were higher-risk drivers... even when not on the [...]

Arrested & Taken To Jail: Your Phone Call Is Being Recorded

2017-11-07T22:30:58+00:00August 28th, 2015|Categories: Criminal Lawyer|

Some penitentiaries are known to make use of sophisticated phone monitoring computer applications that automatically record the conversations an inmate has. Given, some of these systems do alert the inmate of this fact, but normally such individuals never fully grasp what this means. In essence, everything you talk about over the phone is recorded, and ultimately handed over to law enforcement agencies or even the prosecutor that may be handling your case. At a tap of a button, these authorities can conveniently eavesdrop on your conversation, and what might seem like innocuous assertions can be converted into potent evidence against you. An individual who has been apprehended, particularly for the very first time, is usually extremely flustered. They talk about issues they wouldn’t ordinarily do, and it is up to their criminal defense [...]
