Mitch Jackson, an award-winning trial attorney (Orange County “Trial Lawyer of the Year” in 2009, and the California Lawyer Attorneys of the Year (CLAY) Award for litigation in 2013), nationally-recognized speaker, and social media influencer joins The #Hashtag Show host, Dr. Michelle Drouin in a lively discussion about legal issues that are topping the media headlines:
- Distracted Driving
- Revengeporn and Sextortion
Did you know that there are three types of distracted driving? Or that the number of people killed each year from distracted driving is the equivalence of a jumbo jet crashing and killing everyone on board every month? In the first part of the segment, Mitch gives critical advice to listeners about how to limit their own distracted driving and what to do if they see others on the road who are engaging in this dangerous practice.
Next, we talk about what to do if you or someone you love is being cyberbullied. Should you go to the police? Should you get an attorney? Mitch outlines the basics of what you need to do, from who you need to contact first to what types of evidence you should gather.
Finally, Mitch and I engage in a lively discussion on revengeporn and sextortion. These crimes are becoming more and more popular across the country, and the perpetrators range from jilted ex-lovers to skilled criminals, depending on the crime. Don’t know the difference between the two? Tune in to find out how they differ and what you should do if you find yourself a victim of either.
