Two international tourists who say they came to Florida for a three-day visit were taken into custody on a recent Saturday. According to court documents, the arrest took place at the hotel where they were staying.

Police in Ocala became suspicious when four people suffered drug overdoses in a particular area.

Woman arrives at court for jury duty, leaves facing drug charges

Florida residents who are called for jury duty can visit a dedicated website for advice about what to wear. Although it warns people to limit the jewelry they plan to wear and not to have change in their pockets to avoid being stopped at the metal detectors, there is no advice about carrying drugs. Anyone who is in possession of illegal drugs when he or she arrives for jury duty might have to face drug charges instead.

Child neglect and drug charges filed against Florida mother

Facing charges of any crime will cause anxiety and concern, especially if there is a child involved. Being arrested on drug charges can jeopardize a Florida mother's parental rights. If the court suspects child neglect, the consequences can be severe, even if the mother is not convicted.

Florida man's 911 call for home invasion leads to drug charges

A Florida man's call to 911 recently led to his arrest. According to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, the man reported a home invasion at approximately 11 p.m. on a recent Monday. They say he claimed that there were people in his home and on his property. Deputies rushed to his address, and instead of home invaders, they claim to have found enough narcotics to justify an arrest on drug charges.

Man's arrest follows alleged use of recreational drugs

A man in Florida was taken into custody after reportedly committing a drug crime and neglecting a child. His arrest came after authorities said a toddler, 2, ended up testing positive for cocaine. However, anyone facing charges related to recreational drugs, such as cocaine, cannot be convicted unless prosecutors can prove these charges beyond a reasonable doubt.

Drug crimes: What constitutes an unlawful arrest?

Any person who is unfamiliar with criminal law procedures in Florida may not know his or her constitutional rights during a search or arrest. The criminal justice process usually starts with an arrest, whether for alleged drug crimes or other criminal offenses. This is the process that involves a police officer exercising his or her authority over a suspect, and that person's submission -- voluntary or involuntary.

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.

Drug crimes: 8-year-old found in company of alleged drug dealers

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. The severity of their drug crimes accusations is exacerbated by the fact that they had an 8-year-old child with them when they were allegedly involved in a drug transaction.

Florida man charged with possession of new or legend drug

Any person who is charged with drug crimes in Florida will likely grasp the seriousness of the situation. A criminal charge of possession of drugs is filed if a person is caught in possession of controlled substances or prescription drugs without the necessary prescription authorizing the person to have the drugs. Such charges could lead to harsh fines and possible jail time along with a reputation that is ruined.
