Drug charges: Driver claims she was unaware of meth on front seat

A 22-year-old Florida woman was arrested when authorities pulled her vehicle over as she was on her way to fetch her boyfriend upon his release from jail. According to authorities, the woman was a known offender for driving with a revoked or suspended license. Law enforcement reportedly executed the traffic stop at around midnight on a recent Wednesday -- a stop that led to drug charges.

Even nonviolent offenses can lead to prison time

Sometimes, people in Florida and elsewhere do things without realizing that their actions could be deemed unlawful. One such case recently led to a judge sending a 39-year-old man to jail for contempt of court. The man has now filed an appeal, claiming his public criticism of a judge was nonviolent and within his First Amendment rights.

DUI manslaughter charges follows high speed rear-end crash

Driving under the influence of alcohol in Florida can have severe consequences. When an impaired driver causes an accident in which serious injuries occur, or lives are lost, the outlook may appear bleak. Facing DUI manslaughter charges is serious, and it is always a good idea for an accused driver to secure legal counsel to protect all applicable legal rights.

How should you defend yourself against manslaughter charges?

When you face criminal charges of any kind, you probably understand how important it is to take immediate action to start protecting your future. There is a lot at stake, particularly in cases that involve violence or the harm of another person. This includes manslaughter charges, involuntary or not.

The role of plea bargaining in defending juvenile crimes

Sometimes, teenagers in Florida commit crimes as the result of a dare or peer pressure, without realizing that the potential consequences could adversely affect the rest of their lives. Whether they are involved in underage drinking, drunk driving, or breaking and entering, they are committing juvenile crimes. If caught, they will have to answer for it, though an attorney who has experience in protecting the legal rights of juveniles may be able to limit the damage.
