White collar crimes: 70-year-old man pleads guilty to fraud

Along with 11 others, a Florida man pleaded guilty in federal court to his role in a $63 million fraud scheme. Authorities say these white collar crimes were conducted between Jan. 2006 and June 2012. The scheme involved a mental health clinic in Miami that no longer exists.

Burglar arrested for the credit card fraud he reported

A twisted tale was unraveled after Florida police arrested a suspected burglar in Fort Lauderdale recently. What started as a burglary investigation led to credit card fraud charges against a man and a woman. According to a police report, the man said he saw evidence of credit card manufacturing at a home he had allegedly broken into.

DUI charges filed against Florida woman on horse back

An unusual case is unfolding in Florida that involves a Polk County horse owner. According to the sheriff's office, a call came in to report a horse with a seemingly confused rider on a busy road in Lakeland on a recent Thursday afternoon. Deputies responded and pulled over the horse rider. She was arrested for DUI, and she is also facing a misdemeanor charge of animal neglect.

Seniors face higher risk of receiving of DUI charges

There is a common misconception that older people do not have to worry about DUIs because they do not drink as much alcohol as younger motorists. Unfortunately, seniors in the Fort Myers and Cape Cod areas and across the country are just as likely to receive DUI charges. They may have more driving experience and cause fewer accidents, but their age makes it easier for alcohol to remain in their bodies longer, increasing the risk of them driving while impaired. 

Possession and other charges filed against mother, 2 daughters

Florida law enforcement in Charlotte County recently executed a search warrant at a residence in Port Charlotte. The circumstances that led to obtaining the warrant are unknown. A report by the sheriff's office indicates that upon entering the home, detectives found a 23-year-old mother in bed along with two young children. A body search purportedly yielded some Dilaudid pills and a syringe in her possession. More syringes, opiate residue coated spoons, a rope along with a small quantity of marijuana were allegedly found in her bedroom as well.

Juvenile crimes: Civil citations underutilized

Lawmakers in Florida and across the country believe that prison and the company of adult criminals are not the best places for children. Their opinion is that aberrant behavior in most minors can be rehabilitated if caught at a young age. For that reason, accusations of juvenile crimes are treated in a different way than charges for adults under the criminal justice system.
