Acclaimed Criminal Attorney, Vince Imhoff, Examines What to Do if You Are Falsely Accused of a Crime

Vincent Imhoff

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Being accused of a crime that you haven’t committed can be downright terrifying, especially if the alleged victim appears to have a solid case. In an ideal world, it would be possible to just sit back and let your innocence speak for you. In reality, however, there are many things that you should and should not do to keep yourself, your reputation, and your freedom protected.

Start Collecting Evidence and Contact an Attorney:

The first and most important thing to do if you have been falsely accused of a crime is to align yourself with a good criminal defense lawyer. Although you are aware of your innocence, you’ll want to have a qualified legal professional on your side. This is someone who can guide you through conversations with law enforcement agencies, assist you in collecting evidence, and determine the best way to present your defense.

In addition to hiring a lawyer, you’ll also want to collect as much evidence as you can. The extra evidence may include:

-Receipts indicating where you were and what you were doing at the time of the alleged crime
-The clothing that you were wearing on the date of the event
-Video or photo evidence of your whereabouts.

You should additionally make a list of evidence from the scene of the crime. If there’s blood or other bodily fluids, bullet casings or other weapons, or anything else of significance, write these details down for your attorney.

When meeting with your lawyer, be as forthright as you possibly can. This includes being honest about any threats that were made in past conversations or anything else that might show you in a negative light. These are things that will likely be brought up during a trial, and it is vital for your lawyer to know about them beforehand.

If you feel like you have stumbled across something that might be falsely incriminating you while collecting evidence, be sure to retain it anyway. You can talk about these things with your attorney. Destroying anything that might be perceived as evidence could make prosecutors believe that you have something to hide. Moreover, purposeful destruction of evidence could lead to additional charges, despite your innocence.

Never Try to Work Things Out with Your Accuser:

People are often falsely accused of crimes by someone they know. Your first instinct may be to reach out to this person to try working things out. This is always a bad idea. The only person that you should discuss your case with is a defense attorney.

A single conversation could make things infinitely worse between you and your accuser. More importantly, you may be seen as attempting to intimidate the witness. If you have not been charged and arrested, be sure to keep as much distance between yourself and this individual as possible.

Don’t Readily Relay Evidence or Consent to DNA Testing:

Before taking any actions or making any statements, always be sure to consult with an attorney. Your lawyer can determine which forms of evidence should be passed over to law enforcement, when, and how. If officers show up at your door, demand that they return with a search warrant, and remember that you have the right to remain silent.

Your attorney should be present whenever you make a statement and when anything is being signed. You should also consult with this professional before consenting to any DNA testing or other similar examinations.

Consider Counter Suing for Defamation of Character:

Once your innocence has been proved, your lawyer can help you recoup the damages caused by having false charges levied against you. Depending upon the severity of the charges you’ve faced, pursuing defamation of character suit could be necessary for restoring your personal and professional reputation.

Conclusion:

Fighting against false criminal charges can be a nerve-wracking experience. Exercising your right to remain silent and availing yourself of a reputable defense attorney are two of the most important things that you can do to protect yourself and your reputation.

July: A Horrible Month for US Consumers

High Drug Prices Couple

July Drug Price Hikes Could Prove Lethal

CPPI Header

What Happens Every July: Big Pharma Uses Cover of Holiday to Raise Prices

Americans are dying due to high drug prices. July will likely usher in further profit-hungry drug price hikes. Congress must act now.”

— Jack Pfeiffer, Executive Director of CPPI

WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S.A., June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every year in the United States, drug manufacturers raise the price of brand-name prescription drugs in January and July. The Campaign for Personal Prescription Importation says Congress must take action now to ensure that imperiled Americans have access to affordable medications.

“Americans are dying unnecessarily due to grossly high prescription drug prices. July will likely mark another round of profit-hungry drug price hikes. Congress must act now to save lives and ensure Americans have access to affordable prescription drugs,” said Jack Pfeiffer, Executive Director of the Campaign for Personal Prescription Importation. “Americans importing their medication from licensed online Canadian pharmacies are saving 50 to 90 percent on brand name drugs. Expanding personal prescription importation access is a straightforward step to save lives.”

Historic Drug Price Hikes
Drug manufactures have sped the pace of price increases during the COVID-19 pandemic.

– In January 2021, drugmakers increased more brand name drug list prices than any other January in the last decade.
– Over 900 drugs increased in price by an average of 5.1% in January 2021, compared to 639 drug price increases at an average of 5.2% in January 2020, reports Brooklyn46 Research.
– July 2020 price increases on 67 drugs by an average of 3.1% eclipsed increases of July 2019 on 37 drugs at an average 4.3%, reports GoodRx.
– Brand name drug prices have increased an average of 276.8% between 2006 and 2020, compared to the cumulative general inflation rate of 32% during the same period, reports AARP Research.

Personal Prescription Importation Solution
Two bills presently before Congress could immediately expand American patients’ access to affordable prescription drugs and curtail the deadly impacts of rising U.S. drug prices. The Safe and Affordable Drugs from Canada Act of 2021 (S.259, H.R.832) and The Affordable and Safe Prescription Drug Importation Act of 2021 (S.920, H.R. 2181) would expand support for prescription importation and fully codify individuals’ rights to safely import prescription drugs from Canada.

– Americans report saving an average of $2,736 a year on personally imported prescription drugs from certified online Canadian pharmacies compared to costs in the U.S.
– Campaign for Personal Prescription Importation price comparisons find that online Canadian pharmacy prices are 50% to 90% more affordable than prices at AmazonPharmacy, GoodRx, and leading U.S. pharmacy competitors like Walmart and CVS.

– The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that prescription drug importation could deliver $7 billion in federal savings over 10 years.

“The time to take action against rising U.S. prescription drug prices is now. American lives depend on it,” reiterated Pfeiffer.

Price Hikes Lethal Implications
Millions of Americans struggling to afford medications are facing lethal consequences as rising prices put necessary prescription drugs out of reach.

– More than 1.1 million Medicare patients could die over the next decade because they cannot afford to pay for their prescription medications, reports West Health.
– Even small increases in out-of-pocket prices can correlate with a 32.7% increase in monthly mortality, reports the National Bureau of Economic Research.
– Drug price increases lead to much higher outpatient costs and decrease appropriate drug treatment due to access issues, reports a JAMA Network study of over 45,485 patients.
– 89 percent of Americans over 65 take prescription medications, with one in four struggling to afford drug costs, reports the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Price Hike Impacts on Seniors, Medicaid & Medicare
While uninsured, underinsured, and patients with chronic conditions are dramatically impacted by rising prescription drug prices, the toll hits seniors particularly hard, even those covered by Medicaid and Medicare.

– The January 2021 price increases will add over $2.3 billion in pre-rebate spending to Medicare Part D. Beneficiaries pay roughly 25% of a drug’s pre-rebate cost before they get to catastrophic coverage; after which, taxpayers pay 80% of the pre-rebate costs, estimates 46Brooklyn Research.
– An older American who uses brand-name prescription drugs is likely to have experienced an average annual retail cost of drug therapy of more than $31,000 in 2020, exceeding the median annual income for individual Medicare beneficiaries of $29,650, reports AARP Research.
– Out-of-pocket prescription drug costs have risen faster than any other senior expense, 252% since 2000 to over $3,875. Over the same time, average Medicare Part B premiums have been the second fastest-rising cost, climbing 218% to $144.60, reports the Senior Citizens League.
– List price increases on relatively high-cost drugs such as Eliquis (used for blood clots), Symbicort (a treatment for asthma and lung disease), Revlimid (a cancer medication), have translated directly to higher Medicare and Medicare enrollee costs, reports Kaiser Family Foundation.

Reps. Titus & Mace Applauded by Agriculture & Animal Welfare Leaders for Introducing OFF Act to Reform USDA Checkoffs

The USDA’s Checkoff Program was supposed to ensure American farmers of all sizes could promote their products across the nation and across the globe.”

— U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC)

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, the Organization for Competitive Markets (OCM), Animal Wellness Action (AWA), Animal Wellness Foundation (AWF), and National Dairy Producers Organization (NDPO) applauded U.S. Reps. Dina Titus, D-Nev., and Nancy Mace, R-S.C. for introducing the Opportunities for Fairness in Farming (OFF) Act, designed to reform and bring accountability and transparency to reform the USDA’s Commodity Checkoff Programs that have long been plagued by scandal after scandal for misappropriation of funds, lack of transparency, and misusing farmer and rancher tax dollars against the best interests of the producers to further the agenda of industrial agriculture.

“This legislation will bring much-needed accountability and transparency to USDA’s checkoff programs which have operated without sufficient oversight for far too long,” said Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev. “Family farmers should not be forced to pay into organizations that sometimes lobby against their interests and threaten animal welfare.”

“The USDA’s Checkoff Program was supposed to ensure American farmers of all sizes could promote their products across the nation and across the globe,” said Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C. “For years now, small farmers have seen their hard-earned money used to fund the lobbying efforts of massive, multi-billion-dollar agriculture conglomerates. This program has devolved from producing ‘Got milk?’ ads to creating taxpayer-funded lobbying firms, and it needs to stop.”

“USDA’s runaway checkoff programs must be held accountable, and family farmers have a right to know where their hard-earned tax dollars are being spent,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action, and a member of the board of directors at the Organization for Competitive Markets. “The checkoffs remain under fire because of their lack of transparency, misuse of funds, and damaging anti-competitive practices that have bankrupted millions of American farmers, and harmed billions of animals.”

“The checkoff is an example of how farmers lost their voice,” said Mike Eby, executive director at the Organization for Competitive Markets and chairman of the National Dairy Producers Organization. “We are disappointed that historically, the USDA and Congress appear to have little regard for the millions of farmer dollars that are being used for purposes that are not being made public."

“OCM stands firmly in support of putting more farmers back on the land and reigning in the egregious and illegal activities National Cattlemen’s Beef Association continues to engage in,” said Vaughn Meyer, president of the Organization for Competitive Markets and a lifelong cattle producer from Reva, South Dakota. “The OFF Act is proudly supported by more than 250,000 farmers nationwide and the U.S. House should swiftly hold a hearing to address checkoff reform.”

Background:

The OFF Act would amend the authorizing checkoff laws to ensure the programs cannot contract with organizations that engage in lobbying, conflicts of interest, or anticompetitive activities that harm other commodities. It would also require that they publish all budgets and disbursements of funds for the purposes of public inspection and submit to periodic audits by the USDA Inspector General. The measure is supported by more than 250,000 farmers and ranchers across America in an unlikely coalition of allies that include OCM, AWA, AWF, NDPO, the American Grass-fed Association, the National Taxpayers Union, and the National Farmers Union to name a few.

Commodity checkoff programs (“checkoff programs”) were established to serve as mechanisms by which agricultural industries pool money for common commodity-specific promotional and research purposes. Fees are mandatory, from the smallest local farmer to the largest factory operation. Checkoff dollars go to federal, industry-specific boards, which are required by law to use these funds for mutually beneficial advertising campaigns and research.

Under federal law, farmers of certain commodities (including pork, eggs, beef, and corn) are required to pay a portion of their sales into checkoff programs. These mandatory fees are intended to be used by the U.S. government to research and market those commodities. Well-known examples of past checkoff-funded advertising campaigns are “Got Milk,” “Pork. The Other White Meat,” “The Incredible, Edible Egg,” and “Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner.” Checkoff programs collect over $850 million from America’s farmers and ranchers every year. In 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that checkoff activities and speech are those of the federal government.

Despite the limited purpose of the checkoffs, checkoff programs have repeatedly acted beyond the scope of their statutory mandate. Lax oversight by the USDA has resulted in collusive and illegal relationships between checkoff boards and lobbying organizations, both of which have repeatedly used checkoff funds to influence legislation and government action despite a broad statutory prohibition. Such advocacy efforts have an anticompetitive effect and are forcing traditional family farmers to pay into a system that actively works against them.

The OFF Act was first introduced in the 115th Congress by Rep. Titus and former Rep. Dave Brat, R-Virg., in the U.S. House and Senators Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Cory Booker, D-N.J. in the U.S. Senate and a 2018 Farm Bill amendment that mirrored the OFF Act was one of only three amendments afforded a vote in the U.S. Senate, but the measure was not included in the final farm bill signed into law. Lee and Booker have since been joined by Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. in the effort for checkoff reform and the Senators plan to reintroduce the measure in the Senate in 2021.

A copy of the legislation can be found here.

Organization for Competitive Markets (OCM) is a membership-based research and advocacy organization working to expose and break the stranglehold of corporate consolidation in our food and agricultural economy. Headquartered in Lincoln, Nebraska, OCM was founded in 1998 by farmers, ranchers, attorneys, agricultural economists, rural sociologists and state legislators to challenge the growing income power disparities between agricultural producers and agribusinesses in the food system. OCM was founded on the premise that independent farmers and ranchers must ultimately survive and prosper by receiving fair and adequate compensation for their products through the marketplace.

National Dairy Producers Organization (NDPO): "We Dairy Farmers pledge to thoroughly and immediately review and study each of the issues that impact the price of milk paid to producers in order to determine and facilitate needed changes that may be required to reach our stated purpose of producer profitability, for now and in the future.”

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies, and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

The Animal Wellness Foundation (Foundation) is a Los Angeles-based private charitable organization with a mission of helping animals by making veterinary care available to everyone with a pet, regardless of economic ability. We organize rescue efforts and medical services for dogs and cats in need and help homeless pets find a loving caregiver. We are advocates for getting veterinarians to the front lines of the animal welfare movement; promoting responsible pet ownership; and vaccinating animals against infectious diseases such as distemper. We also support policies that prevent animal cruelty and that alleviate suffering. We believe helping animals helps us all.

California Congressional Candidate Ronda Kennedy LEADS the Fight Against Voter Fraud

" I am not just complaining about election fraud. I am fighting in court to assure our elections are fair."

VENTURA, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — California 26th Congressional District candidate Ronda Kennedy, a Republican civil rights attorney running against Julia Brownly, issued a statement vowing to restore election integrity in her district before voters go to the polls in 2022.

Kennedy defeated her Democrat opponent by 3-1 at the voting booth in the November 2020 election, but like Democrats across the country, Brownly was fraudulently reelected after receiving an overwhelming majority (94 percent) of the mail-in ballots in the district where only 55 percent of voters are registered Democrats.

In January, Kennedy joined forces with the Election Integrity Project and nine other candidates and filed a federal lawsuit, EIPCa, et al. v. Weber, et al., challenging California’s unconstitutional election process for future elections. Kennedy and the plaintiffs are seeking Declaratory and Injunctive Relief following rampant irregularities in the 2020 general election in California.

The 9th Circuit Court of appeals is reviewing the case that will likely be adjudicated in the Supreme Court, setting precedence for other states in the union, Kennedy contends:

“I am not just complaining about election fraud. I am fighting in court to assure our elections are free, fair and every American vote counts. My campaign represents the seventy-four-plus million Americans who were defrauded and are not gonna shut up – who refuse to step past the illegitimate elections as if nothing happened. If we allow the fraudulence to go unchecked, we have stepped from what was America into tyranny.

It’s time for photo-voter ID law. The absence of voter ID is a recipe for fraud waiting to happen. A photo ID is required for everything we do in this country. Eighty percent of Americans support voter ID laws. Yet, Democrats connivingly attempt to persuade voters into believing that verifying your identity to vote is a racist ploy and vote against Voter ID legislation. As a result, people can vote multiple times. The dead vote. Illegal immigrants vote.

It’s time we get rid of mail-in ballots. The enemies of freedom exploited a manufactured COVID pandemic in 2020 to rig the election with an unprecedented mail-in-ballot election for the express purpose of electing Democrats. In court, we will irrefutably prove that our electoral system is broken. California laws like ballot harvesting and mail-in ballots disadvantage minority groups who prefer to vote at the ballot box than by mail. We cannot dwell on the past. I am fighting for future elections. I expect that my 2022 election results will be fair.”

Reuters report states that the Justice for Victims of the 1988 Massacre in Iran welcomed Rehman’s call, saying that a U.N. investigation into the extrajudicial executions was 'long overdue'”

— NCRI

PARIS, FRANCE, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In an interview on Monday with Reuters, Javaid Rehman, the United Nations special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, urged the Human Rights Council and other relevant bodies to launch a formal investigation of an overlooked crime against humanity that Iranian authorities carried out more than 30 years ago.

His latest remarks on the subject come several months after Rehman and several other UN human rights experts sent a letter to the Iranian regime demanding an end to its cover-up of the incident and emphasizing that if Tehran failed to hold its own officials accountable, the responsibility would fall to the international community. https://twitter.com/i/status/1410219738085609472

Rehman made reference to that letter in his recent interview, noting that it was motivated in large part by “concerns that there is again a policy… to destroy evidence of mass graves.” The graves in question may hold the remains of more than 30,000 individuals, all of whom were killed over the course of just a few months in 1988.

That summer, panels of judiciary and intelligence officials, known as “death commissions” interrogated political prisoners throughout Iran and ordered the summary execution of all those who failed to demonstrate fealty to the theocratic system. Many were sent to the gallows after “trials” lasting just a few minutes, during which they refused to disavow their support to the leading pro-democracy opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

Reuters report states that in a statement, the Justice for Victims of the 1988 Massacre in Iran welcomed Rehman’s call, saying that a U.N. investigation into the extrajudicial executions was “long overdue. “

It is highly significant that the MEK was the prime target of the 1988 massacre, especially given that the architects of that massacre definitively failed in their goal of stamping out organized opposition against the clerical regime. While it was ongoing, the massacre was a clear sign of the extent to which Iranian authorities felt threatened by that opposition. Since then, it has served as a perennial reminder of the depths those authorities are willing to sink to when trying to suppress dissent.

The massacre was prompted by a fatwa from the regime’s founder, Ruhollah Khomeini, which declared that the MEK and affiliated groups were guilty of “enmity against God” and should consequently be killed.

The threat of similar reprisals has only intensified in recent years, as Tehran has struggled to restore order in the wake of multiple, widespread uprisings that demonstrated the MEK’s breadth of social influence.

In his interview on Monday, Javaid Rehman highlighted the role that Ebrahim Raisi is believed to have played in the 1988 massacre and also in the 2019 crackdown, which took place after he had been appointed as head of the judiciary by the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. That appointment seemed to clear the way for Raisi to run effectively unopposed in Iran’s June presidential campaign. His victory was confirmed on June 18, and critics promptly began warning of the potential for Iran’s human rights record to grow even worse in the Raisi era.

Rehman correctly indicated that Raisi’s status as president-elect greatly increases the urgency of an international investigation into his role in crimes against humanity, both historical and recent. The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), went further by emphasizing the need for multilateral sanctions, diplomatic isolation, and other assertive measures as a means of deterring Iranian authorities from stepping up their crackdowns on dissent.

That message will no doubt be reiterated before an international audience between July 10 and 12, when the annual live-streamed gathering of Iranian expatriates, the “Free Iran World Summit.” takes place. The event is expected to connect tens of thousands of expatriate activists through a number of simultaneous gatherings and will also feature speeches from hundreds of European and American dignitaries and lawmakers.

The event will certainly feature testimony from survivors of the 1988 massacre and from the families of its victims, as well as presenting clear evidence of Raisi’s high-level involvement in the farcical trials and resulting death sentences in the nation’s capital.

Proper investigations will certainly help to confront the Iranian regime’s culture of impunity regarding this and other crimes against humanity. But to prevent the escalation of human rights abuses, Western powers and the United Nations will have to make concerted efforts to stay ahead of the regime’s growing desperation in the face of organized and widespread unrest.

If Raisi still faces no accountability for the 1988 massacre when he takes office in August, it is easy to imagine that the regime will be encouraged to further crackdowns on the opposition and the people at home and more malign activities abroad.
