Medicaid fraud, computer analytics and false allegations

Medicaid fraud is, essentially, the illegal practice of seeking payment from the Medicaid system. The Obama Administration aimed to reduce Medicaid fraud throughout the country. Although a noble goal, there are concerns that the methods used could result in false allegations of fraudulent practices by medical professionals.

Avoidance versus evasion: When are tax reduction practices illegal?

Dealing with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) likely falls within the top three when making a list of things you would like to avoid. Unfortunately, 2,400 citizens of the United States will probably soon find agents of the IRS knocking on their door as a result of the Panama Paper fiasco.

Most of New York's drug laws still carry stiff penalties

During the 1970s and 1980s, U.S. politicians at the federal and state level took action to pass harsh drug laws that called for mandatory minimum sentences for even minor offenses. In the years that followed, incarceration rates throughout the U.S. skyrocketed leading to the widespread overcrowding of prisons and jails and billions of dollars in increased government and tax spending.

Why eyewitness suspect identifications cannot be trusted

Anyone who has ever been involved in an accident or witnessed a crime may have been asked to describe what happened as well as who or what they saw. Unfortunately, the human brain is remarkably inaccurate at capturing and retaining information and details that may be helpful in these types of situations. This appears to be especially true with regard to eyewitnesses to crimes as "eyewitness misidentification was a factor in more than 70 percent of post-conviction DNA exoneration cases."
