If you’ve been thinking that you’ve been having a bad week and someone tells you that at least you aren’t in court for a crime you didn’t commit, you might want to take them seriously and thank them for the comfort. You’ll be surprised at how many times people end up in difficult situations with the law because they were at the wrong place at the wrong time. Sometimes people are wrongfully accused of a crime and since the authorities are slow to judge and faster to arrest, there might be some trouble you didn’t deserve before you’re let go.
