Holidays & Shopping & Theft - Beware

Posted on December 8, 2016 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (1)
DECEMBER marks lots of holiday shopping. This holiday shopping can also make you vulnerable to theft. Theft seems to be on the rise around this time - whether it's packages being taken from your porch, car break ins, or simply crimes of opportunity. Be aware, be smart and be safe. Lock your doors. Be aware of your surroundings. Park in well lit areas. Cover your valuables when leaving them in your car. Use common sense and don't be lulled into believing we live in a small, safe community. Unfortunately, crime still occurs when you least expect it. So just be aware, smart and safe. Happy Holidays!

APRIL = DISTRACTED DRIVING MONTH

Posted on April 3, 2015 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Join me in "putting down the cell phone" when driving.  In this busy world, it's easy to forget the dangers of texting and driving.  It's easy to try and multi-task when you're driving from point A to point B.  However, the consequences of multi-tasking in the car can be deadly. 

In 2010, Calli Murray was a beautiful 2 year old with her entire life ahead of her.  She spent some time in the park with her mommy.  As they left the park, she held her mommy's hand and began walking across the crosswalk.  She was ripped from her mother's hand and killed instantly.  Her mother was severly injured as well.  The cause?  A distracted driver.  The driver?  A college student who was texting while driving. 

As a mother, my heart goes out to everyone who has lost a child to distracted driving.  As a former prosecutor, I have been to too many crime scenes where innocent lives were tragically taken at the hands of a distracted driver.  As an experienced criminal attorney, I understand the laws and consequences you may face if you text and drive and ultimately harm or kill someone.   

I think of Calli every time I am tempted to text and drive.  Join me in observing Distracted Driving Month and put down those cell phones when driving!

Hopefully you were smart and didn't drink and drive while celebrating into the New Year.  But if you did and now face criminal charges, seek the advice of an experienced attorney immediately.  Carrillo Law is open for business and ready to defend you.
