Rick Cofer is a professional lawyer whose main focus is on criminal law. He has represented many clients over the years. As a result, he has a better understanding of criminal law. Recently, the issue of determinate sentences caught his attention. Although the debate about the matter has been theoretical, Rick Cofer and his counterparts are determined to find an amicable solution to the issue. Many clients are affected by determinate sentences, and they include people who have engaged in child sex crimes, among other offenses.
As a criminal defense lawyer who has been practicing for quite some time, Rick Cofer Law is confident that some of the tough cases to handle fall under the category of juvenile offenses. The main issue is that young people are in the developing stage. As a result, they cannot make purely mature decisions as compared to adults. The main issue is that the environment influences most of their choices. Moreover, the lack of life experience is a major challenge. Children cannot also possess the same maturity levels as adults.
When a young person is involved in a sex crime, many people will lose. Some people will be hurt by the incident. Others will judge harshly. There are different ways in which the society should address the victims and the accused individuals. The legal system will be tasked with ensuring the accused individual has been rehabilitated so that they may cease to be a danger to the community.
In this context, Rick Cofer law will enlighten people about determinate sentences as well as the best ways in which different goals can be achieved. Although there is a Determinative Sentence Act that is meant to make sure that people are rehabilitated, there is a lot of evidence that states that most of the offenders are being punished by being issued long sentences that may even last for decades. The sentences cannot also be reviewed by other agencies or even parole boards. When it comes to rehabilitation, it should be handled in a suitable manner. For instance, when a child is growing, they will have to adhere to different rules and regulations that have been set by their children and parents. If they fail to comply with the set rules, they will be punished accordingly. They may be grounded, and during this period, they will get to think about the repercussions of their actions, and they will be glad to change their ways. To know more about Cofer visit medium.com

Robert Redick, Gary Kisling, and Rob Nestico organized KNR Personal Injury Law Firm in 2005 and in a few years served local communities. The three lawyers found the firm in Akron, OH and received remarkable growth throughout the state with approximately 31 attorneys joining its legal team. Gary, Rob, and Robert formed the KNR Cares About Kids Campaign to focus on seeking ways to motivate and inspire children to reach their potential goals in life. With such growth within the firm, the legal team of attorneys and staff devote time to interact with these kids while donating money to different organizations and charities in Greater Ohio. They believe in hands-on involvement and their continuous support is visible at each monthly event held in designated locations.
To celebrate Kisling, Nestico & Redick Law Firm’s 12th anniversary, the attorneys made a commitment to give to charitable organizations each month in 2019.

When the new salary law was passed in January 2017 in Philadelphia, one of the top business lawyers in the municipality Karl Heideck followed the aftermath of the announcement and gave a detailed report on the case. According to Karl Heideck, the salary law that was passed prohibits employers from asking potential employees about their salary history. The reason this law was passed is to bring transparency in the hiring process which for a long time have been skewed to oppress the marginalized groups. When it was announced, the law caused major controversy in the municipality with employers seeing it as a move to limit them from access information regarding the people they were required to employ.
Karl Heideck took time to give his opinion about the law. He states that, according to him, the law was meant to close the gender pay gap that existed in the United States for a very long time. Historically, men are paid better than women even when the job description for both is the same. This culture had created room for employers to continue undermining the female gender, by offering them lower pay whenever they sought employment in new places. What happened in most cases is that employers are only willing to add a particular percentage to the salary one was earning in the previous job. So, when a woman goes to look for a new job, her salary is already low compared to that of the man when the employer goes ahead to add a particular fixed percentage to both, the salary of the man will still be more than that of the man.
What the legislators in the state of Philadelphia hoped for is that they could close this gap and have all people seeking a job irrespective of the gender have the platform to discuss their salaries. This could only be achieved by ensuring that the employer does not have access to the salary history of the employee. Before this law, it was suicidal for an employee to refuse to release his or her salary history as most employers would flatly reject their job proposals.
