Rape laws in Florida

Unlike some states, Florida law does not recognize rape as its own criminal offense. Instead, rape is included as an additional type of sexual battery offense. As such, the prosecution must prove that sexual battery occurred, or that elements of a sexual battery existed, in order to prove an accusation of rape.

Legal defense against criminal charges in Florida

There are an incredibly large number of different criminal charges that an individual could face, and even though some crimes are more serious than others, there are no instances in which being convicted of a crime is ideal. Like many states, Florida law classifies different crimes based on their severity, with minor crimes such as trespassing or shoplifting being considered misdemeanors, and more serious crimes such as homicide or rape as felonies.

What are Florida's laws regarding heroin?

There are an unbelievable amount of drugs circulating throughout the state of Florida, ranging from legal, prescription drugs to illegal drugs used for recreation or to satisfy an addiction. Many of these drugs are unknown to most people because it would be extremely difficult to keep up with all of the different names for all of the different drugs. However, there are some drugs that are notorious enough to be household names all across the country, let alone in Florida. One such drug is cocaine, and another is heroin.

Drunk driving is no minor traffic violation

If you have been pulled over and charged with drunk driving, you may think that it is not a serious issue, that it is like any other traffic violation such as speeding or running a red light, especially if there was no accident and nobody got hurt. However, this is not the case. In fact, drunk driving charges are serious criminal charges, and you could be facing more than some minor fines and a defensive driving course if you are convicted.
