Man charged with weapons possession in New York

Reports indicate that a 41-year-old Brooklyn man has been charged with illegal possession of a weapon for allegedly being in possession of brass knuckles. Additionally, police say that they found a M72-LAW rocket launcher at the man's home on Knickerbocker Avenue on Jan. 16.

It is a common occurrence these days to be held up in the airport screening line because someone forgot to remove their water bottle or shampoo bottle or forgot to put their laptop in a separate container.

Man charged in violent assault of New York couple

New York residents might benefit from learning about the different classifications of homicide. In certain cases, homicide may be considered a legal act.

(Over) Prosecuting Insider Trading

Before Rudy Giuliani became the Mayor of New York City, he was the hard-charging U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Manhattan. His legacy as US Attorney continues to be his efforts to hold individuals responsible for crimes committed on Wall Street. He arrested and convicted many well-known traders and financiers of the time. In fact, by 1988, Giuliani had brought five times as many insider-trading cases as had ever been brought before in his district.
