The holiday season is an enjoyable time of the year for many people. It
is a time when most of us focus only on the good times, such as gift-giving
and spending time with family and loved ones. It can be very easy to let
one’s guard down because people become so wrapped up with holiday
planning and shopping. Someone can reluctantly become the victim of a
crime or even falsely accused of a crime.
The Most Common Holiday Criminal Arrests
One study from Allstate Insurance Company revealed that the rate of crime
tends to increase during the holidays. Theft crimes are one of the most
common, and it can be caused by many factors. A package is delivered to

As the founding attorney of the
Law Office of John L. Venza Jr., have seen a wide range of offenses go through the criminal process each

former prosecutor for more than five years and as a criminal defense attorney. I recognize that many people are put
on the hook for a crime for many circumstances that are beyond their control.
This time of year is busy for everyone, but what is true is that you do
deserve the right to protect your integrity and your rights.
When dealing with criminal accusations, it is important to pay close attention
