What are the rights of the US Customs and Border Protection?

There are many different federal law enforcement agencies. Each has its own specific jurisdiction. As a resident of Minnesota, you are always under the control of any government law enforcement because you are a U.S. citizen. One branch you may have contact with more than others, especially if you travel, is the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Many people in Minnesota are avid fans of professional or collegiate sports and many may even find the occasional bet on a game, meet or other event fun. While certainly this form of gambling can be enjoyable it may also prove lucrative depending on the amount of money a person bets. However, when it comes to betting on sports, this is currently not legally allowed in Minnesota but a case before the U.S. Supreme Court now may well change that.

Allegations of new phishing scheme

Minnesota residents who try and follow news about online safety and security know that this can be a very tricky area. While certainly there is a need to ensure that people's data and activity online are safe, it is also important to understand the difference between illegal activity and some type of bug in a computer system or even a standard marketing campaign. Many people may get annoyed at marketing emails and assume spam and phishing messages are the same.

How spam and phishing are different

If you have ever heard or read reports of people being charged with internet crimes in Minnesota, you might wonder just what is phishing and how is it different that other marketing emails that people might refer to as junk or spam. This is a legitimate question and the fact is that the two can sometimes seem similar but the law does distinguish between them in very clear ways. 

Most of woman's sentence to include home monitoring

Minnesota residents who are accused of white collar crimes like embezzlement, conspiracy and other offenses may well be nervous about the prospect of spending time in prison. The inability to keep working or maintain other parts of their lives can be seriously hampered which yields consequences that last much longer than a sentence on its own might.
