Matt Bromund – Fighting For Your Future: Crimes And Time – How It Impacts You!

There is an immense amount of power in the hands of criminal prosecutors today.  You may ask how that impacts you.

We think we understand the law and most of us can rattle off the names of crimes without having to think about it:  murder, theft, battery, and rape, etc.

But what most people don’t understand is that laws that were regulatory have expanded.  Now people are very likely to break the law without knowing it!

Over the centuries, there has been an increasing scope of people who can be victims of crimes.  Way back during the Roman Empire, a Roman man, head of the household, would not be prosecuted if he were to beat his slaves, his children or his wife to death!

Property crimes were considered as bad or worse than crimes against people, i.e., horse thievery. This was because the laws were made to protect wealthy people.

As we have become more democratic, crimes against property became less serious than crimes against people.  Even then, old ways hung on: The concept of raping a spouse only became criminal in 1920!   

Furthermore, we have the legislature always working and making new laws.  As more people are charged and convicted with crimes, and as incarceration increases, legitimate options for convicted people have gotten smaller.  As jail sentences have gotten longer and judges are encouraged to give the harshest sentences, people are branded as ex-cons forever.  They have limited access to societal help.  The result is that we are creating more people who are incapable of reintegrating into society.

What are the consequences to you?

  • More people have to live outside the general society.  They have to engage in criminal activity because of lack of options.
  • Laws that used to be regulatory now can be a federal offense and this includes the act of filling out federal forms incorrectly!

Listen to Matt’s show and find out how to identify “hidden” pitfalls –  Find out how to avoid breaking the law without knowing it!

Matt Bromund – Fighting For Your Future: DACA Rollback – What DACA Recipients Need To Know!

Matt urges DACA recipients to renew their applications before October 7th!  They will be guaranteed up to 2 more years in the US.

Due to the phasing out of DACA by the new administration, Matt Bromund, Principal Attorney of the Bromund Law Group, dedicates this show to helping DACA recipients.

800,000 people are protected under DACA and need to move from where they are to something that will allow them to continue their lives in the United States.

Two and a half million children came into the country in recent years and have been here 5 to 20 years!

They “see themselves as vessels of the American Dream of their parents.” Known as Dreamers, their numbers include doctors, lawyers, fire fighters, paramedics, teachers, entrepreneurs, etc.  They don’t see themselves as immigrants at all but more like first generation Americans.

The Bromund Law Group wants to help Dreamers.  Matt urges DACA recipients not to wait and to find ways to remain in the country NOW.

Ways to Qualify For Entry Into The U.S.A. (“Easy” entry.)

  • Marry a United States Citizen
  • Become a person of exceptional value – a genius in what you do.

Other People Who Qualify for Entry Into the U.S.A. (Not as easy as the ways above.)

  • Someone who has a job waiting for them – a job that the employer is having a hard time filling with an American.
  • Someone who has money to invest to hire American workers
  • Someone who is a brother, sister, child or other relative of someone who is here legally.
  • Someone whose continued survival is at stake if they are not allowed into the U.S.A., i.e. Syrian and Venezuelan refugees.

There are millions of people who want to come to the United States but only a few hundred thousand legal entries are allowed each year.

Matt warns DACA recipients that prosecutorial focus has been on criminal aliens and it is important that DACA recipients do not contemplate breaking the law in any way.  If you are charged with a crime, you will not get the benefit of the doubt no matter how long you have been in the U.S.A.

Matt Bromund – Fighting For Your Future: What Constitutes A Criminal Act?

Matt Bromund, Principal Attorney of the Bromund Law Group
Specializing in Family, Immigration, and Criminal Law
(805) 650-1100

Matt’s show today is the first in a series of programs relating to comments of listeners like you!

More and more our world is becoming one governed by law.  What is necessary for something to be criminal?  What does it mean to comply with the law and what is it to commit a crime?

Mens rea is the intention to do something not good for society.

Today Matt focuses on the 2nd component of criminal law:  Actus reus. “Action or conduct that is a constituent element of a crime.”

What sort of acts form the basis of a criminal violation?

  • A thing we do that just affects ourselves.
  • A thing we do that affects people close around us.
  • Acts that affect the broader town we work in:  When you steal something, or deface something  – that affects society. Graffiti is an example of this act.
  • Acts that harm greater society’s ability to relate to each other.  Examples: Spreading lies about someone else or destroying a bridge.
  • Acts that harm a structure or system that is harmful for society as a whole:  Examples: Treason, assassination, terrorism.

Each category has a different history determining how much one can do without it being criminal.

Listen into Matt’s fascinating show and find out more details and the history on what determines a violation of the law and how that relates to you, your family, and your community.

Matt and the Bromund Law Group are proud to represent people on an individual basis, case by case.

Matt Bromund – Fighting For Your Future: How Is It That Good People Get Charged With Crimes?

Today, Matt Bromund dissects the law for our benefit!  From the 10 commandments to the 21st Century!  How come  it is so easy for the everyday person to break the law nowadays?

The answer is easy:  There is so much more law.  Living as a law-abiding citizen is more complicated!

In ancient times, it was hard to chisel words on stone and this physically encouraged simplicity and brevity – “Thou shalt not kill.”   Today, billions of words are analyzed, honed to their exact meanings, and stored in huge data bases by legislative bodies.

Politics also comes into the equation, Matt says. Legislators write laws or eliminate laws to make a difference – to make the world a better place.  The law writers want to make sure that their individual ideas get stamped on the law.  Legislatures don’t think about how their proposals affect other laws that are in effect.

The result is that everybody has an incentive to make more law. And so the body of law grows.

Important Question:  Who is left out of the situation?  Answer: The ordinary person.  Now laws are supported by more laws, rules, and regulations. The result is that it is easy to break the law.  For instance, it is the law that you must have a front license plate on your car.  Specifically, in California, you can get a ticket for not having it affixed at a certain height and in a specific way.

Listen to Matt’s show and find out how you may be at risk for breaking the law and how most Californians are committing 1-5 misdemeanors a week!

If you find yourself unwittingly on the wrong side of the law, call Matt at the Bromund Law Group (805) 650-1100.

Matt Bromund – Fighting For Your Future: You Have The Right To Remain Silent – Will You Have The Ability?

 Matt Bromund, Principal Attorney of the Bromund Law Group
Specializing in Family, Immigration, and Criminal Law
(805) 650-1100

gavel_borderIn his fascinating show, Matt Bromund, Principal Attorney of the Bromund Law Group, examines the 1st and 5th amendments of the Constitution.

Matt maintains that the 5th amendment, specifically – your right to remain silent –  is one of your most important constitutional rights.

Since the 1950s, “You have the right to remain silent” has a been a stock phrase.  It’s in books, TV shows and the movies.  We the people are very familiar with it – it means “You are under arrest.”

What most of us don’t know, Matt says, is that this right does not only come into play when people are under arrest.  It is ALWAYS important and comes into play when anyone is dealing with the government from a police officer to a dog catcher!

The Founding Fathers knew that the right to remain silent is critical to being a sovereign and free person.  This is because the government has a lot of power.  They can physically take you and hold you, take your land, your property and confiscate your things.  They can put you to work without pay if you are convicted of a crime.  They can even take your life.

We have been brought up to tell the truth and be honest; We find it difficult to NOT say anything.    This can work against us in dealing with the government.

From over a decade of experience, Matt says that, overwhelmingly, the greatest source of evidence used to convict people wrongly of a crime is their own statements!

Listen to this fact-filled, informative show  and find out how to protect yourself and your life.  Learn about your right to remain silent  and how it is essential to preserving your status as a free person.

You have the right to remain silent, but will you have the ability to do so?  Ask Matt Bromund.  He is there to help. Call the Bromund Law Group  (805) 650-1100.
