It is also recommended to use night lights, motion sensors and to have an alarm installed. When leaving on vacation or plan to be away from your home have neighbors or family check your home and collect your mail.
Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is a mere allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
