Criminal defense: 1 man charged with assault

A man in the Bronx is facing serious charges after the body of a deceased man was found in his apartment. New York authorities found the body in the 37-year-old man's apartment in the Bronx on Sept. 13. While the man insists he had nothing to do with the death, he has been charged with several crimes, including assault and concealment of a human body. When his court date is announced, he will face these charges with criminal defense representation by his side. 

According to the unusual report, neighbors complaining of a foul smell reminiscent of "very bad garbage" emanating from the man's apartment eventually called 911. Officers reported to the scene and found an unidentified man dead in the apartment. He was bound from his hand to his ankles with duct tape, and police discovered slash marks on his chest and wrists. It is unclear how long he had been dead by the time he was discovered, but there was some degree of decomposition. 

Building a strong defense strategy

Facing arrest for a crime can be one of the most unsettling experiences in a person's life. Even if this is not your first time wearing handcuffs in the back of a police car, you may still be dealing with feelings of confusion and uncertainty.

Every case is different, but there are limited options for the course of action you may take when prosecutors file charges against you. You will want to discuss the matter carefully with your attorney before making any decisions or taking any drastic steps. Making a hasty move can leave you with negative consequences that could follow you the rest of your life.

Protecting the rights of college students accused of crimes

While college students are adults, many of them are young, inexperienced and unsure of how to protect their rights in the event that they find themselves in trouble with the law. If you are preparing to head off to college or you are under investigation for an on-campus incident, you will find it beneficial to learn more about your rights as a student. When you understand your rights, you can better protect yourself. 

One important thing to understand is the role and authority of campus police at your school. These are men and women who are there to protect you and maintain order on campus. However, there is a point when their authority ends and your rights begin, and you will want to know where this line is.
