Creating a criminal defense will likely help Florida man

Some actions can sometimes make a situation worse, but that does not mean that those actions cannot be explained and possibly rectified later. For instance, some people may think that fleeing from police will work in their best interests, but this idea often stems from fear or anxiety. Still, it can lead to additional charges for a person who may already be in need of a criminal defense.

One man in Florida will certainly want to make sure that he understands his legal options for addressing the predicament he currently faces after recently being charged. Reports indicated that authorities were called to a location after the man allegedly attempted to use a fraudulent check. Police purportedly approached the man while he was inside a vehicle, but the man drove away instead of getting out. This action allegedly resulted in the vehicle hitting one of the officers.

Police began a pursuit of the man's vehicle, which went through multiple surrounding areas. The vehicle eventually came to a stop, and officers took both the man and his passenger into custody. The man is now facing charges for assault on a law enforcement officer and possibly other allegations. The passenger was apparently not formally charged in relation to the event.

Crimes against police officers are taken very seriously. Though the report stated that the man has a criminal history, it may still prove useful to him to understand the predicament he currently faces. Entering into the Florida legal proceedings without knowing what to expect may make the situation more difficult than it has to be. Information on criminal defense options and the allegations that have been brought against him could give him the opportunity to better address his case.
