LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Individuals who are not sure about the rights when interacting with police can now access a brand-new online resource by law aficionado Eric Wetlaufer that is designed to conveniently answer all of their questions.
The new website can be found at http://www.EricWetlaufer.com/.
According to Wetlaufer, today's climate is extremely hostile, so it is critical that people know their inalienable rights when dealing with law enforcement. Wetlaufer decided to launch his new website after discovering how little people know regarding their rights.
Wetlaufer is currently pursuing his dream of becoming a lawyer, either a state prosecutor or a criminal defense attorney. However, he is also greatly interested in criminal justice. His interest in both of these fields span back to high school, where he was an avid debater. During this time, he also enjoyed watching television shows such as Boston Legal, Night Court, The Practice, and Law and Order.
Since high school, Wetlaufer has come to the realization that the United States' far-reaching criminal justice system has its flaws. These flaws include people slipping through the cracks, as well as people being wrongly accused of crimes and thus sentenced to jail time for crimes they never committed. At the same time, criminals are walking free each day.
Wetlaufer said that the abovementioned injustices will not cease until all individuals fully understand their rights in the criminal justice system. For this reason, he looks forward to sharing the latest on legal matters, news related to the criminal justice system, and basic legal rights–related information.
For instance, visitors to Wetlaufer's website can find out what to do if police stop them on a sidewalk or knock on their doors. Eric Wetlaufer's ultimate goal is to help people to live confidently and as clear and free citizens both now and in the years ahead.
