Can You Record Police Officers in North Carolina?

Since smartphones emerged and started playing an active role in our everyday lives, most Americans carry a recording device in their pockets wherever they go.

You Have the Right to Remain Informed: Miranda Rights in NC

Miranda Rights are some of the most crucial legal protections we have as American citizens. While their name and basic information seem to be well-known, (thanks to police and detective films), the purpose and intended use of these rights are still widely unknown to the average citizen - primarily those who have never been detained by law enforcement. At the Gross Law Group, we believe it's crucial for all North Carolinians to know and exercise the laws that protect them during an arrest. Throughout this article, we'll review the origin [...]

The Salem Witch Trials

In 1692, an overwhelming fear of the devil spread through the town of Salem, a seaside village located in modern-day Danvers, Massachusetts. For the next year, ordinary people-primarily women- were accused, tried, and killed in the name of "committing witchcraft" and "consorting with the devil." The events that took place in Salem would later cement themselves in American history as an ominous example of how fear of the unknown, and lack of a fair trial, can lead to immense injustice and disaster. From Whence The Witches Came To better understand [...]

The Devil Made Him Do It: The Arne Johnson Case

On February 16, 1981, Alan Bono was found stabbed to death on the floor of a dog kennel facility - a gruesome murder committed under the most vexing and terrifying of circumstances. This was the first homicide to occur in Brookfield, Connecticut's 193-year history. The perpetrator, 19-year-old Arne Cheyenne Johnson, was arrested by local police shortly following the murder. Although the crime appeared out-of-character for Johnson, who had no prior criminal record or history of violence, law enforcement viewed the attack as a cut-and-dry homicide case - a landlord and [...]

The Hammersmith Ghost: A Case of Murder

When Thomas Milwood stepped into the bitter cold air one evening in January 1804, he had a few thoughts on his mind: the events of his work day, his wife, tomorrow's to-do list, etc... The thought that tonight would be his last, however, was not one of them. His wife was a few streets away, finishing her work as a laundress. Thomas planned to take a brisk stroll, enjoying the peacefulness of a winter walk, before meeting his wife and returning home. He left his London flat wearing traditional garb [...]

Let's first begin our tale by touching on the bizarre circumstances of Estefania's passing. On a brisk spring [...]
