Your home is your castle! We all want to feel protected and safe in our homes. That is why we all are aware of importance to secure our private property. People have different views on property rights. Some don’t mind if people walk on their land, while others don’t want anyone on their property. Though, people are concerned about the trespassers, either they’re aware of theft and vandalism, or they want to avoid liability if a stranger is hurt while on their property. Yeah! Don’t be surprised! You may be taken to court if somebody was accidentally hurt on your property.
The common criminal law abolished by most states is defining illegal behavior depending on the severity of the crime. A criminal offense may be a felony, misdemeanor or an infraction. Let’s try to explain each type of the offense and make difference between them.
Felonies are considered to be the most serious class of offense throughout the United States because they typically violate the moral standards of the community. Felonies are usually punishable by fines, imprisonment in a state prison lasting more that one year or both. Felonies include:
- treason and others.
The modern media popularizes the life of reach and beautiful. Everyone would like to have a better live and sometimes the desire of having more money or goods may lead to unlawful criminal actions. Some people think that stealing is the easiest way to get richer and that is the reason why larceny or theft are committed so often.
Criminal law basically categorizes larceny as a form of theft that means taking of someone else’s property without using force from the location different from their home.
Larceny consists of unlawful taking of person’s property and carrying it away. In this case someone else’s property means that the larceny occurs when the property belongs to someone else. If the property is co-owned and it was stolen from the co-owners by another one, it is also larceny. Larceny occurs without the owner’s consent, what means that the owner didn’t give his approval to remove the property, and the taker’s intent is to permanently deprive the owner of use of his or her property.
Everybody understands that it is always wrong to leave an infant home alone while you are out. There is no way you can even do that. And it does not matter even if you out for a quick run, let us say, to the store. But how do we know when a child is old enough?
It’s already known that there aren’t many laws to guide parents who are unsure if their children are old enough to stay home alone. Just imagine! 15 million children in the United States are home alone after school every day…
State Laws on When a Child is Old Enough to be Alone
Some state laws vary quite a bit, some don’t. For example, Texas does not set a minimum age of a child to able to stay home alone. Others, such as Oregon, set a minimum age of 10 years. In Maryland it is not allowed to leave a child under the age of 8 alone at home or even in a car. There are also states where a minimum age is set for babysitters as well. Anyway, it is always better to contact the state department of health if you are not sure about the law in your state. By the way, it is always the right decision to contact the child services agency for information on that.
Parents Must Supervise Their Children
You are responsible for supervising your child. You cannot simply leave your child home alone. What if something happens, such as a fire or an injury? Of course, you might get a visit from the police. In many states, child neglect is a crime. Usually it is a misdemeanor. Guess what happens next? Right! You could even go to jail if you’re found guilty. So there’s always a way to solve the problem. Make sure that a child who is left home alone is prepared for emergencies.

In a bizarre set of circumstances involving the sale of a Pack N Play Placard on Craig’s List, a Boston Administrative Judge was arraigned on a misdemeanor charge of larceny by false pretenses for allegedly having sold the item without a vibrating pad. Apparently the buyer had inquired whether the item included the pad and was told that it would be included.
Administrative Judge Cheryl Ann Jacques is a former state senator and a former Assistant Attorney General.The Above the Law article written by Elie Mystal entitled:Misdemeanor Offense of the Day: Judicial Cribs. Like, Baby Cribs, Not Lawyerly Lair does an excellent of illustrating the absurd nature of the charges. Clearly taxpayer dollars could be put to much better use.
