Can you go to jail for tax evasion?

If you are currently facing charges related to tax evasion, you may have concerns about the potential penalties you may face and whether you may have to spend time behind bars. Maybe you honestly forgot to file taxes one year and your finances have spiraled in the time since, or perhaps you understated the amount you owe, and you are wondering whether it will come back to haunt you. While tax crimes are undeniably serious in nature, in reality, the chance of you having to serve time for tax evasion are relatively slim.

Eyewitness errors involved in wrongful convictions

For many people in Pennsylvania who maintain their innocence despite being convicted of a crime, mistaken identity and wrongful identification could be a critical issue. DNA testing has helped to prove the innocence of a number of people across the country who were convicted of serious crimes like rape and murder in which modern-day technologies have allowed new discoveries to be made in old cases. In a number of the convictions overturned through DNA tests, eyewitness misidentification of the person responsible has been a significant factor.

Federal law applies serious penalties to carjacking crimes

Motorists in Pennsylvania typically watch out for traffic hazards, but sometimes a thief directly tries to steal a vehicle from a driver. The thief usually uses some type of weapon to intimidate the driver into giving up the vehicle. Since 1992, federal criminal law has established potentially harsh penalties for people convicted of this form of automobile theft known as carjacking.
