    WEIRD AND WACKY LAWS - The Sequel  © Cynthia Crofoot Rignanese                           
    This fun, 30-minute show will focus on the ridiculous, outdated and just almost-too-funny-to-be-true laws that exist in the US. Hear about fun legal trivia that’s perfect for a water-cooler conversation or to stump your friends!
    Find out what state these are true in:
    Boogers may not be flicked into the wind. Bear wrestling matches are prohibited. It is illegal to impersonate a person of the clergy. Putting salt on a railroad track may be punishable by death. It is legal to drive the wrong way down a one-way street if you have a lantern attached to the front of your automobile. It is considered an offense to open an umbrella on a street, for fear of spooking horses. It is illegal to sell peanuts after sundown on Wednesday. It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle. Dominoes may not be played on Sunday. It is illegal to wear a fake moustache that causes laughter in church. Keep in mind that this radio show is for entertainment... it is not advisable using the mentioned laws as evidence in court, unless you'd like the judge to laugh you into jail!

  • The Pennsylvania Justice Project - Did Tim McEnany Get a Fair Trial?

    in Legal

    It has been about 2 years now, since I began to research and review the facts in the Timothy McEnany case — one of the worst miscarriages of justice in PA history, in my opinion. 
    McEnany was accused of murdering a Hummelstown woman in March, 1993; and despite mishandling and tampering at the crime scene by the victim’s family, gross errors and misrepresentations of so-called “expert witnesses”, and a litany of inconsistencies longer than your arm, McEnany was tried and found guilty of the crime he didn’t commit. In this episode, we'll talk about the suspicious chain of events during and following Timothy McEnany's trial for the murder of Katherine Bishop, and we'll ask why the most likely suspect in the case was completely ignored.

  • Do Custodial Parents Ever Have to Pay Child Support?

    in Legal

    Most people are familiar with the concept of child support – that a parent without residential custody has to pay a parent with residential custody money to support his or her child. But a recent Illinois court ruling now provides that parents who have residential custody may have not pay child support to parents without residential custody, in some cases. This podcast with attorney Kristina Regal explores when this new case law applies to divorce cases, and when it doesn’t.
