What would you do if you were arrested and "Wrongly Charged" with a crime?  Best selling author David Merkatz had such an experience.  He was inspired this new book, Wrongly Charged A Look At The Legal System.  Merkatz has been a guest on over 35 radio stations, and has upcoming TV appearances.

Merkatz, a locksmith, was arrested in South Florida after he hit upon a business strategy of creating a series of locksmith company names that were similar to names of existing companies. He says his method of siphoning off his competitors’ business “might not have been nice,” but his attorney assured him it was legal.

After all, the service he was offering was not a scam. Customers who called would get a real locksmith to their house who would do the work and charge a fair price, he says.

The worst that could happen, Merkatz figured, was that his competitors might file civil claims against him over trademark infringement. Criminal complaints shouldn’t have been a possibility.

But one of the “victims” had ties to local government. Merkatz says that’s how he and two other locksmiths ended up in jail, charged with a host of crimes ranging from money laundering to petty theft. Eventually, the charges were dropped, but Merkatz says he was damaged in many ways by the ordeal.

An eye opening analysis of injustices in the legal system
By Cynthia on May 14, 2015

This was a fascinating look at injustices in the legal system. It focused primarily on a case from Florida that involved the author, which I particularly enjoyed as I live in central florida these days. It was particularly intriguing as Merkatz talks the reader through his own unjust legal charges - while I would normally be skeptical of anyone who write a book claiming they were falsely charged, Merkatz provides some compelling evidence that makes me really side with him. I have never had a brush with the law, so all of my knowledge of it is mainly from crime TV shows. It was eye opening to see the anecdotes of the author and the disparities between what is portrayed and what can actually happen. I would love to see more from this author!
