Sexual assault and the effects of allegation

As law enforcement strives to cut down on the amount of violent crimes in the country—crimes such as homicide, domestic abuse and sexual assault—more and more people are being accused of crimes that they might not have committed. Sometimes even if the accused is acquitted, his or her life is never the same due to the media frenzy that can surround these cases. One of the best ways to avoid such an ordeal is to know what these violent crimes consist of and how best to defend yourself against false allegations.

An overview of drug arrests

Drug crimes have become increasingly notorious in the last few decades, perhaps most notably after President Nixon's "War on Drugs" began to gain momentum. While dangerous illegal drugs are a real concern for our country, the stigma around drug charges can be detrimental to reputations, and the zeal with which some law enforcement agencies go after drug offenses can sometimes lead to erroneous charges. This may be especially true in Florida, where drug trafficking seems to be a larger threat than in many other areas of the country.

Some Florida courts have banned breath tests

Drunk driving could not only result in serious injury or death, but a conviction could result in license suspension and even jail time. What you might not know is that there are regulations surrounding a drunk driving allegation. For example, police must have probable cause to pull you over, meaning they can’t simply decide to test any random driver for alcohol. They must also be sure to conduct field sobriety tests properly and take adequate care of their breath test machines.

Sex offenders are still human beings with rights

As far as public image is concerned, sex crimes are among the most destructive. Even if you’re acquitted from sex crime charges, the stigma could follow you around for quite some time. This is partially because our society has a bad habit of assuming blame on the accused before they are even brought to trial. Because of this, it can be very difficult for convicted sex criminals or even alleged sex criminals to live normal lives, but some in Collier County are seeking to remind everyone that sex criminals are people too, and they have rights.
