While Katie Hill was not a nationally recognized name a few months ago, most people who follow the news know that the former California representative recently resigned over allegations of an affair. The story made waves, in part due to leaked, private photographs of the representative.

More charges in college bribery schemes

By now most people have heard about the college admissions scandal where wealthy parents were buying their kids' way into school. While several parents have already been convicted, the federal government is still bringing more charges in the case. For those who haven't pleaded guilty, the government just announced additional charges of conspiracy to commit federal program bribery.

Supreme Court upholds double-jeopardy exception: What it means for Trump associates

The double jeopardy clause is one of the foundations of our criminal justice system. The Fifth Amendment guarantees that you can't be prosecuted twice for the same offense. If you're charged with a crime and a jury finds you not guilty, the prosecution doesn't get another shot. Without this protection, the prosecution could simply keep coming after you, and your right to a fair trial would be rendered worthless.

Tekashi69 quietly takes plea deal in exchange for cooperating

It's no secret that rapper Daniel Hernandez, aka Tekashi69, has found himself deep in troubled legal waters. Last November, he and several associates were arrested and hit with numerous federal felony charges in connection with the Nine Trey Gang, a violent sect of the Bloods. A conviction on all counts could have landed him in prison for life; at minimum, he faced nearly 50 years behind bars.

She's faced charges ranging from theft and disorderly conduct to forgery, battery and hijacking (of a bus, apparently). One of her daughters was even born in jail.

Rapper Cardi B faces misdemeanor charges, potential prison after strip-club fight

Cardi B, the "Bodack Yellow" rapper known for her aggressive, in-your-face style, is apparently aggressive in her personal life, too. She turned herself in to the NYPD on Monday for charges stemming from a violent altercation at a Queens strip club last August.

Manafort trial: Is analyzing jury questions just guesswork?

Last Wednesday, a jury found former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort guilty of eight federal charges involving bank fraud and tax evasion. Yet jurors were unable to reach a consensus on the remaining ten counts, leading the judge to declare a mistrial on those charges.
