Teen accused of juvenile crimes after threats to shoot up school

The texted threats sent on a group chat recently were the fourth such incidents in Florida within one month. A 16-year-old girl is being held in a facility for those suspected of juvenile crimes. According to the arrest record, a high school student threatened to shoot up a Catholic School where her younger sister goes. Reportedly, she used her sister's phone and did not realize that she sent the text out on a group chat.

Understanding Florida’s ignition interlock device laws

If Florida authorities stop you and suspect you have been drinking, they will likely ask you to take a breath test. The results of that breath test may lead to a driving under the influence charge and, ultimately, a conviction. A Florida DUI can bring with it substantial penalties. One such penalty may involve having to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle for a predetermined period.

Drug charges and other crimes filed after gang-related arrests

The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the U.S. Marshals Service led an operation along with Lee County Sheriff's Office and the police departments of Fort Myers and Cape Coral in an effort to reduce gang-related violence. They called it Operation Triple Beam, and after three months, it led to the arrest of 120 individuals. Along with drug charges, other charges were filed for a range of high-profile crimes.

However, exceptions exist, and prosecutors are allowed to charge minors in adult court under circumstances that involve specific felonies.

Fraud allegations lead to investigation of roofing company

Individuals and business owners in Florida who learn that they are being investigated might be unsure of how to proceed without jeopardizing their rights. A judgment error or being misled by another person might lead to allegations of fraud. The circumstances could even involve false accusations, and the investigation might lead to an arrest. For this reason, criminal defense counsel from the outset is crucial.
