Best Answer: booking is not charging.
Charging comes later. What you have at booking is what the guy was arrested for.
booking information gives the elements of the crime.
In most places where the system is computerized the arresting officer types in the number of the law and the computer generates the elements of the crime for a description.

In this case he was arrested for a sex related solicitation of a child, the child was not a prostitute (what the definition of a child is changes by state, some 13, some under 13 some 16 and under).
The case is a felony and the “crim agnst admin just” or crime against administration of justice is likely a technical term having to do with that state’s penal code name. The rest is that he resides in Minnesota and ( again likely) has no permission to have his residence in that state (he did not regiater which he has to do if he is already convicted of a sex offense).

Sound like a preferential predator. He likes kids (not co workers unless you are a single mom with a kid) and somehow contacted a kid (now a days likely on the internet but lots of other ways) and arranged to meet for sex with the kid.

How do criminal defense lawyers defend the worst scum without feeling bad?

How do criminal defense lawyers defend the worst scum without feeling bad?
I can see drug charges, property crimes, etc.

But I am talking about the real dirtbags. Serial rapists, repeat pedophiles, cold blooded killers. How do they do that,? with a victim and their family staring at them in the courtroom..getting off the guy that raped and murdered their child, etc.
I’m not saying the lawyers are bad, maybe just doing their job. But does their conscience ever bother them?

Best Answer: Well, the theory is that EVERYONE is entitled to the best possible legal representation they can get, but I, personally, couldn’t do it.

Good luck!… ☺

Answers:

Chris: Get a bachelors degree in undergrad college, Apply to a law school, take the LSAT (law school admission test), get in law school, do 3 years of law school and get your J.D law degree, take the bar in whatever state you want to practice law, then you will become an license attorney

Sherry: You only need a law degree which should enable you to pass the Bar exam and be a licensed attorney. This means you need to understand all the laws, such as business contracts, real estate etc. There is no specific degree for criminal law. After you can apply for a position as a Assistant DA or with a criminal defense law firm. There you would learn hands on criminal law practice. The point is after a law degree, you would have covered all the legal courses needed. So it would be pointless for a Lawyer to get a Criminal Justice Degree after being a lawyer already.

I am a Freshman in college, and I’m going to college to eventually become a Criminal Defense Attorney. In my Computers class, we have to give a presentation on how computers are used in our career field. I’m hoping some people, or even true lawyers, could give me some advice. Thanks!

Choosing a career is one of life’s most important decisions. If you possibly can, change your major asap.

The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don’t expect the situation to improve in the coming years…..

Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<

Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today’s graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the “Public” buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals – we have an absolute glut!! (“Legal Professionals” includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)

Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.

The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career – mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] – a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction – the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS – the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one’s ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities – the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).

Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.

Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.

Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <

Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival – they will tell students anything to get to the students’ money. (Which is why they won’t tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates………….Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES – their top concern is making money for themselves.

>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can’t stress this enough): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<

If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................

In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability….and scholarships.

Good luck.

Leah: Thats a loaded question. Lawyers use computers all the time for research, to communicate, to track cases and data. Also they use computers to have their own website to promote their firm. I’ll add an example link below.
