Walking is a healthy, economical, eco-friendly form of transportation, but not always safe for the walkers. On October 10, 2019, a 22-year-old woman was fatally injured while crossing the street at the intersection of 36th Street and Burlingame Avenue in Wyoming, Michigan.
Two cars collided in the intersection and one of them spun out of control, hitting Catherine Fenner at approximately 6:34 p.m. Ms. Fenner was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died from her injuries. The cause of the crash was still under investigation at the time of the report.
Possession of a small amount of a controlled substance in Wyoming is charged as a misdemeanor. Upon conviction, this crime carries penalties that may include up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, or both. Possession with intent to sell is a serious crime that is charged as a felony, with penalties that are much more severe.
If you are facing criminal charges, or under investigation, it is possible for your social media presence to work against you. Your posts, including comments, images, or video, can be used as evidence in court. Police investigators will harvest information from all your social media accounts, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc., to find evidence to support the prosecution’s case against you.
Fall is here, and along with it, comes rain and slick roads. Driving safely during rainy weather takes a different skill set, which, unfortunately, not all drivers have. During heavy rain, the risk of a serious or deadly accident increases dramatically. Even if you are a careful driver, you can’t control the actions of other drivers who are sharing the streets, roads, or highways.
During the fall months, driving becomes more hazardous. Rainstorms, wind events, and flooding can affect driving conditions. The risk of a vehicle accident increases in bad weather. Leaves accumulate on the streets and roads, a danger to cyclists, and fallen leaves may cover road markings. School is in – and many more drivers are transporting their children to and from school, slowing traffic.
Wyoming roadways are becoming more dangerous, with the number of fatal accidents on a sharp increase, as reported by the Buffalo Bulletin. The number of highway deaths has almost doubled in a single year – the question is, why?
If you have been convicted of a crime, and have spent weeks or months awaiting sentencing, you are not alone. The average time a person spends waiting for sentencing in Wyoming is 57 days, and is often far longer, usually months. It has been proposed that the law be rewritten so that a prisoner can apply the days spent waiting for sentencing or a transfer to prison be taken off his or her sentence as “time served.”
Hospitals are not transparent by nature. They don’t share their safety records with the public, and they do not like to admit it when they make mistakes. They’re businesses, and while we hope they have good motives, we know the administrators make a lot of money.
Summer is finally here, and now we can enjoy all the benefits the sunny and warm season has to offer. The kids are out of school, and people are taking trips to the lake, having pool parties, barbecues, picnics, and more! Though these activities are a great way to take a load off and spend much-needed quality time with friends and family, many summer activities also involve alcohol consumption.
Every once in a while, giving away money can be more fun than making it. Especially when that money is going to a good cause, like the college education of a deserving Wyoming student! For that reason, we at Steven Titus & Associates, P.C., are delighted to tell you that we’ve chosen a winner for our Find Your Path Scholarship 2019.
