Florida teen needs criminal defense after having BB gun at school

These days, it seems like there is an incident regarding weapons on school grounds far too often. Unfortunately, some teens may make threatening statements or bring weapons onto school property without fully thinking through their actions. Still, they can wind up facing serious charges and needing a criminal defense even if they think their actions were a joke.

12 indicted on drug trafficking charges in Florida

Investigations into drug-related activity can often result in numerous arrests. As a result, cases can become complicated and can take a substantial amount of time to move through the criminal justice system. Of course, each person accused of drug trafficking has the ability to handle his or her defense as each sees fit.

Man hits police car with lawnmower, faces drunk driving charge

Criminal charges can result from a variety of situations, including those that seem a bit ridiculous. Of course, ridiculous-seeming or not, if an event warrants criminal allegations, it becomes one that should be taken seriously. For instance, if a person is charged for drunk driving on a lawnmower, he or she may find it useful to prepare for the pending legal proceedings.

Assault, battery charges stem from altercation with officer

The repercussions of criminal charges can vary depending on the circumstances. Some people may not see much impact beyond the allegations themselves, and others could end up losing their jobs because accusations have come against them. Cases of assault can have the latter outcome, especially for individuals who hold certain occupations.

The complicated debate over life sentences for juveniles

Florida has spent the better part of a decade discussing whether juveniles should receive automatic life sentences for violent crimes like murder. Real change occurred in 2014 when lawmakers changed state law to allow a sentence review for people sentenced to life imprisonment as juveniles. This differs from parole, in which an inmate’s release from prison is conditional under supervision before the end of their sentence. After the inmate’s sentencing hearing, a court would decide whether rehabilitation had occurred or if they would serve the rest of their sentence in prison.

Florida man faces charges for drug-related offenses

A man who found himself at the site of a drug bust has been arrested, according to local sources. The 42-year-old is facing charges for drug-related offenses after Florida authorities say he was found on the scene with drugs on his person. As the man was not involved in the circumstances of the existing drug bust, his case will be handled separately by the court.
