Arkansas police officer accused of drug crimes, conduct violation

Everyone makes mistakes in life. For some, those mistakes could lead to criminal charges, and a person may find him or herself desperately wanting to find the best way to address those circumstances. When it comes to criminal allegations for drug crimes and other offenses, creating a meaningful defense is often a viable way to work toward rectifying a difficult situation.

One man in Arkansas will certainly want to make sure that he addresses his case in a meaningful way after recently being taken into custody. According to reports, the man is a police officer and was in charge of the criminal investigation division. Other officers apparently became suspicious of the man and believed that he was taking evidence from the evidence room. Officers allegedly caught the man on video entering the evidence room and putting items in his pants.

Delayed symptoms you may experience after a car accident

Hundreds of car accidents happen every day across Arkansas. 

Most of these auto accidents do not make the news because they are relatively minor in nature. However, even these minor collisions can still result in serious medical issues. You need to see a doctor within 24 hours of the initial crash to make sure everything is all right. It can take several days or weeks for the following symptoms to develop, and you want to get ahead of any potential health problems. 

Trademark infringement leads to lawsuit with Rihanna against dad

Trademarks can give business owners some peace of mind in knowing that they have taken steps to protect certain intellectual property. Still, a trademark may not physically stop another person or entity from using that property. However, it can allow the trademark owners to take legal action against those who commit trademark infringement.

Arkansas readers may be interested to know that singer Rihanna has recently filed this type of lawsuit against her father. With her full name being Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the singer started using the name Fenty in 2012 in association with her cosmetics brand, Fenty Beauty, and other businesses. At some point, she apparently obtained a trademark for the name Fenty. In 2017, her father, Ronald Fenty, began using the family name for his talent and production company, Fenty Entertainment.

Bob Marley family companies win breach of contract suit, appeal

Business owners and operators often want to take precautions to make sure that they do not put their companies at unnecessary risk for damages. These precautions often involve creating contracts and other agreements when they do business with another person or entity. Unfortunately, these precautions may not always protect the business as hoped if a breach of contract occurs.

Arkansas residents may be interested in a lawsuit that involved companies owned by the family of late musician Bob Marley. According to reports, Fifty-Six Hope Road and Hope Road Merchandising had entered into an agreement with a coffee company that allowed that company to use the musician's name and trademarked image for business purposes. The coffee company reportedly named a beverage after Marley.

Identifying issues, remaining fair may allow for amicable divorce

Though many Arkansas residents may believe that ending their marriages is the right step to take, they may worry about the contention of the dissolution proceedings. However, divorce does not have to be a complicated fight. Parties who want to make an effort to end their marriages amicably may want to consider ways in which they can help make that happen.

It is often easy to place blame during times when emotions run high, but refraining from doing so during divorce may help the situation. Parties can work to determine why the relationship did not work, which may go better if both individuals are willing to admit to their own part in the marital issues. Some people may wonder how this step could help with divorce, but when each party understands why the relationship ended, it could give a sense of closure that is often needed.

18-wheeler accidents: Multiple lives lost in Arkansas

When a driver loses control of a vehicle, it can be immensely difficult to get the vehicle back under control. A driver may begin to panic, which often does not help matters. Additionally, if a semitrailer is involved, the size of that vehicle can come into play. In such cases, it is likely that 18-wheeler accidents occur.

It was recently reported that an accident in Arkansas involved similar circumstances. Apparently, a truck driver was traveling north when that individual lost control of the truck. The truck then traveled into oncoming traffic where it collided with another commercial vehicle and a passenger vehicle. Another vehicle was also reportedly involved, but details were not given on what role it played in the accident.

Whose drugs are they?

Recreational possession and usage of any type of drug is illegal in Arkansas. In order to convict you of a drug crime, however, the prosecutor must first prove that you owned or controlled the drugs in question. Absent proof of that threshold issue, the prosecutor cannot convict you.

In this post, we will look at why it can be difficult to determine possession.

3 charged with violent crimes in Arkansas

When people are taken into police custody, it is easy for them to feel completely out of their element, especially if they have never been arrested before. They may wonder what will happen to them, what they need to do and what options they may have for getting out of the predicament. In relation to the last thought, obtaining legal information can often help them understand their defense options for accusations of violent crimes.

It was recently reported that three individuals in Arkansas were taken into custody on multiple charges. Apparently, the two men and one woman had been at a home when another man came to talk with the woman. For an unknown reason, according to the authorities, one of the other men pointed a shotgun at the visiting man, and the second man pointed a pistol at the visitor.

Project denials could lead to construction litigation

Because there are many facets involved with completing construction projects, it is easy for something to go wrong along the way. As a result, a company could have to deal with many hardships in order to complete a project. In some cases, a business may face problems before even obtaining a project, and construction litigation could take place.

Arkansas readers may be interested in a construction lawsuit that took place in another state. According to reports, a construction company filed suit against the county after not being chosen for three road construction projects. The company's bids for the projects were the lowest, but the county commission denied the company the opportunity to obtain the projects because of existing concerns regarding workmanship issues. The commission also stated that the company was involved in a dispute regarding a damaged utility line.

Alimony law changes may have some wanting to divorce quickly

Ending a marriage is a major life change, and with changes to certain divorce-related laws coming up soon, many Arkansas residents may be wondering how to best handle important choices in the near future. In particular, changes to alimony law will go into effect in just a couple of months. As a result, some individuals may want to put their divorce proceedings into the next gear.

If individuals already have their marriage dissolution proceedings underway, they may be able to finalize their divorces before the alimony changes go into effect. Many individuals want to avoid being affected by the change because the new law would result in the paying party remaining responsible for the tax obligations associated with spousal support. As a result, some people who may have been dragging their feet in regard to legal proceedings may find themselves wanting to speed things up.
