Teenagers might be lured into a swatting prank

Teenagers spend a great deal of time interacting on social media or playing online games. This is normal for Colorado kids these days, but it might give you cause for concern about your children becoming addicted to the screen or falling prey to internet predators. As a conscientious parent, you may address these issues by limiting your kids' screen time and talking to them about online activity that is appropriate and what is not allowed. You should also know about a common prank that occurs often in the online gaming world, which can result in serious criminal charges even for minors.

Were you arrested and accused of a crime unfairly?

Being arrested and accused of a crime can be a demoralizing experience, and some arrests and crimes are worse than others. If you were innocent of the crime, you will be left to try and explain your circumstances to family, friends and coworkers -- and your reputation could be permanently damaged.

Don't talk about your criminal case with family or friends

After an arrest, your stress, anxiety, and frustration can negatively affect your emotional state. To deal with this situation, many people who are awaiting trial or out on bail find it comforting to unburden themselves in conversations with family members or friends. Some people who are free on bail may use Facebook or other social media connect with family members or friends.
