Convictions on any charges in Florida can have a severe impact on any person's life. If they are convicted, this might also be the case for a man and woman who were arrested on a recent Saturday night.

Florida named one of the worst states for drug arrestees

Being arrested for drug crimes has consequences in every state, but Florida residents may find that their penalties are worse than those of neighboring communities. While each state government is given the authority to select and enforce the punishments for lawbreakers, you may be among those who are concerned about the harsh consequences that are inflicted in courtrooms across the state. We at the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey are committed to fighting for your right to fair treatment if you are accused of a Florida drug crime.

Florida drug crimes suspects arrested in predawn raids

According to Fort Myers law enforcement officials and others, police often serve warrants early in the morning because most people are asleep then. It makes it easier for officers to make arrests when suspects are sleepy. Officials find that in predawn raids, there is typically less resistance than in operations carried out later in the day.

Drug-trafficking fueling boom in Florida money-laundering?

It is said to be Florida's fastest growing suburb, adding residents to its sun-soaked streets faster than any other in the state. Just a two-hour drive southeast of Fort Myers, the booming town of Doral is known for growth, warmth and a bustling money-laundering industry fueled by illicit gains from the drug trade, a recent article in USA Today states.

Three-year investigation results in federal drug charges

A three-year federal investigation ran the length of America's eastern seaboard: from Florida up through Massachusetts and into Maine.

What is the crime of drug paraphernalia possession?

Many people would be surprised to learn they risk getting accused of drug paraphernalia possession if law enforcement agents search their car or house. Florida law defines drug paraphernalia as any object that can be used to ingest, make, transport or package drugs. This is an extremely wide category, as many such objects are not specialized equipment that clearly point to drug involvement. The statute itself lists common household objects like scales, duct tape and plastic bags.
