Naples is a small unincorporated community in Boundary County, Idaho, United States. It lies 11 miles (18 km) south of the city of Bonners Ferry on U.S. Routes 2/95. Naples is near the land features of Caribou Ridge and Ruby Creek. The Ruby Ridge conflict of 1992 happened nearby. Naples is a farming and logging community set in a tranquil valley 35 miles south of the U.S. -Canadian border. The area is teeming with wildlife, streams, and lakes. Hostelling International- Naples blends in with this fabulous wilderness setting. Built as a dance hall 50 years ago, the hostel even has its own old-fashioned general store and Laundromat. The Kootenia Wildlife Refuge, a 3,000-acre wilderness, is filled with bears, moose, coyotes, deer, and birds. Hike on its well-maintained foot trails along a river that provides breeding areas for migratory birds. Take a drive on the Big Moyie Canyon Bridge, high over the Moyie River Canyon and its scenic waterfalls. Ski the powdery slopes at Schweitzer in the Selkirk Mountains. Sail, windsurf, and fish at Pend Oreille and Lake Coeur d'Alene. The town of Naples originated as a natural creekside rest stop on the old Wild Horse Trail and later became a railroad station. It evolved into a rugged frontier village centered in a rich mining and timber country. Lumbering, farming, and tree nurseries now combine with tourism to support economic activity. Naples derives its name from the area in Italy which was home to many of the laborers who helped build the first rail line through the region around 1890. The majestic Roman Nose Mountain, rising just west in the Selkirks was probably also named by these early immigrants. This is a favorite entrance route into the awesome back country of trails and alpine lakes which are just a few miles away

What is criminal defense law?

In a criminal case, the state, through a prosecutor, initiates the suit, while in a civil case the victim brings the suit. Persons convicted of a crime may be incarcerated, fined, or both. Criminal defense attorneys represent clients who have been accused of committing a crime, and defend their rights at each stage of a misdemeanor or felony case -- from an arrest to an appeal after conviction. Criminal defense attorneys may be hired privately or provided by the government (called "public defenders").
