Florida driver charged with DUI and child endangerment

Exposing children to the risks of being in a vehicle with an impaired driver could have severe consequences. Florida courts have no tolerance for adults who are arrested for endangering the lives of children. One such driver will likely be exploring his defense options after a recent arrest on charges that include DUI, child neglect, resisting arrest and some controlled substance-related charges.

Wire fraud charges filed against defamed ultramarathon runner

A 46-year-old man who reportedly moved from another state to Florida last year was recently arrested. His arrest arose from an investigation into alleged white-collar crimes committed from 2014 through 2018. The man was charged with multiple felonies, including theft and wire fraud.

DUI suspect dances through the field sobriety test

A Florida man was in the proverbial wrong place at the wrong time when he was recently arrested. Deputies say they came across a 33-year-old man who was sleeping in his pickup truck in Holiday. They allege they noticed the brake lights were on and found that the engine was running and the driver was asleep behind the wheel, but he had his foot on the brake. According to a police report, the DUI suspect thought he was in Clearwater, and he was under the impression that it was about 10 p.m. while the police report indicates that it was 2 a.m.

False arrest for drug crimes leaves man behind bars for 41 days

According to a Florida man, one of the worst things anyone could go through is to sit behind bars for a crime he or she did not commit. This happened to him after he was falsely arrested for drug crimes in December and was unable to pay the bond of half-a-million dollars. He now hopes that there will be some sort of restorative justice for the emotional distress experienced by him and his loved ones, especially because he had to spend Christmas in jail.
