In 2015, Oregon became the latest state, and the first state bordering California, to legalize recreational marijuana. Nevada may soon follow. If you are visiting Oregon - or Washington state or Colorado - and buy some pot, you are well within your legal rights to do so. If you bring some of your pot home with you to California, however, you can face both state and federal criminal charges.

You may have heard of people being hit with California felony penalties for shoplifting items from a store--and may have wondered if this can really happen.

The mistakes made when we're young can have lasting consequences long after we've grown up. Many juvenile convictions can in fact be counted later in life as one of the “three strikes” that can lead to some of the most severe penalties available under California's Penal Code.

Having to register as a sex offender after a conviction is a punishment that can weigh on you and limit your future long after you've served your time behind bars. But what crimes will get you on the Sex Offender Registry?

You may not be aware of it, but when you obtained your California driver's license or when you drive on California's roads and highways, you have given your “implied consent” to submit to a breathalyzer test if you are lawfully arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

If you or someone you know is a “hoarder,” criminal charges can be added to the pile of problems created by this challenging mental illness.
