Defend yourself from violent crime accusations

Often when people think of violent crimes, they think of crimes involving the death of another human, such as homicide or manslaughter. While these may be the most notorious violent crimes, they are certainly not the only violent crimes. Most crimes involving a weapon, such as aggravated assault and armed robbery, make up other violent crimes, as well as domestic violence and mistreatment of a child either through battery or neglect.

Not even deputies are above drunk driving charges

Drunk driving is a serious crime with heft penalties, and a conviction can change your life. This is not without good reason, since drunk drivers can pose serious risks to themselves as well as others on the road. With this in mind, it is no surprise that Florida's law enforcement officials treat potential drunk driving cases so seriously. Nobody is beyond drunk driving charges because the ramifications are so serious.

If a victim doesn't say no, can it still be called rape?

For the most part, rape is a pretty cut-and-try criminal offense. If any form of sexual intercourse is attempted or performed by one part on another party without one party's consent, regardless of the genders of the aggressor and the victim, then it is considered rape. In most states, it does not matter if the parties are married or if force is exercised; nonconsensual sexual intercourse is considered rape.

You must defend yourself from criminal charges

If you have been accused of a crime, no matter how severe, the most important thing for you to focus on is your defense. The unfortunate truth is that our country's justice system is not perfect, and innocent people sometimes do get convicted. You are innocent until proven guilty, but courts can only make the best determination of guilt based on the information and evidence that is presented to them, so it is imperative that you build a solid defense case that proves your innocence.

What you need to know about hit-and-run in Florida

Lengthy investigation ends in multiple drug crime arrests

Authorities in Florida do not shirk their duties when it comes to drug crimes. They will take as much time as they need to investigate accusations and suspicions of a drug crime, and when they feel that they have all the evidence they need, your life could be turned upside down in an instant. Whether you are accused of drug trafficking, drug possession or any other such crime, it may prove to be in your best interests to meet with a defense attorney immediately. The consequences of a conviction could be catastrophic.
