Prison releases begin under First Step Act

New Jersey residents may be interested to learn that over 3,100 people will soon be released from federal prisons as part of the implementation of a sentencing reform bill. The Bureau of Prisons will be releasing these individuals in compliance with the First Step Act, which was passed by Congress and signed by President Trump in 2018. The majority of the offenders being released were convicted on drug charges and many have already been living in halfway houses after they were identified for eligibility under the law. However, 900 of the people being released are still eligible for detention by immigration authorities or local officials.

Study reveals the most dangerous cities for drivers

It has long been speculated that certain cities are more dangerous to travel in than others. However, a recent report from Allstate specifically shows which cities are the most dangerous for drivers. While no New Jersey cities landed on the dreaded worst 15 list, none made the list of the 15 safest either.

The harsh consequences of moving violations

You may expect severe penalties for a DUI conviction or causing a serious accident. However, you may not give much thought to the penalties for traffic offenses, such as speeding, running a red light or tailgating. In fact, you may be like many who prefer to accept the charges, pay the fine and go on with life. However, paying a fine may not be the end of your penalties.
