THE BANGERTER CASE FILES

FROM THE DESK OF Matthew Bangerter

If you or someone you know has been charged with a DUI or other crime, you may feel lost or overwhelmed by the legal process.

I’ve written a free book answering some of the following common questions:

How do people unknowingly and unintentionally hurt themselves and their cases? What are the most common misconceptions about arrests in criminal cases?

The most beloved of all fictional detectives, Sherlock Holmes, celebrates his 164th birthday this month. It’s speculated that Holmes would have been born on Jan. 6 of 1854, and fans across the globe gather each year on this date to observe his “birth.” People don their pipes, top hats, and long coats and, with a chorus of “The game’s afoot,” settle down for a weekend marathon filled with novels, short stories, movies, and TV shows. The character Sherlock Holmes was created by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who finished his first novella in 1886, called “A Study in Scarlet.” Although Doyle is best known for his four novels and a handful of short stories about the private detective Holmes and Dr. John Watson, it wasn’t his life’s goal. Doyle wanted to become a historical novelist and wrote several novels of the genre which were admired in his time but did not receive the same attention as Holmes. The author became so disgruntled with Holmes and his popularity that he finally killed the beloved character in 1893. But due to the public’s overwhelming reaction, Doyle grudgingly brought him back in the early 1900s. One of the most noticeable characteristics of Holmes’ character is his ability to use observation to solve cases. Through reasoning and scrutiny of the people and areas around him, Holmes solves seemingly impossible mysteries. These characteristics were inspired by a professor Doyle met while attending medical school, Dr. Joseph Bell. The professor impressed on the students how important observation was when diagnosing a patient. Bell also enjoyed picking a student from his class and guessing their particular profession based only on observation and inductive and deductive reasoning.
