Florida man charged with drug offenses after traffic stop

People in Florida know that the possession of drugs is illegal. For that reason, most people in the Sunshine State simply do not possess them. However, sometimes when a person is facing an arrest for allegedly possessing illegal drugs, he or she may make matters more complicated by attempting to flee from the authorities.

A strong defense for your federal criminal charge

When people find themselves accused of crimes in Florida, they are usually terrified of what the future may bring. When people find themselves charged with federal crimes, the level of terror increases because the potential penalties increase in severity. If you face a federal criminal charge, you may wish to consider contacting the attorneys at Escobar & Associates.

Death penalty decision could mean major changes in Florida

Six deaths, reportedly cold and calculated. Five children and their mother, the confessed killer's wife. If you have watched the news routinely in the past six years, you are probably familiar with hearing about the atrocity. It is almost impossible to wrap your mind around it, if what is reported has a semblance of truth behind it. Now, in one of many pretrial motions before the trial date is even set, prosecutors and the defense struggle to determine the best course of action given the likely preconception of guilt, largely as a result of media coverage.

Robin Hood crimes are tempting during the holidays

Over the holiday season, you can't turn around without seeing material items for sale, being bought or being given. Excessive purchases are loaded into trunks, and happy tunes assault the airways. To be without, or to know others who won't be receiving gifts makes the holiday a little unbearable and perhaps that is why the news is full of warnings about stolen packages and car thefts at this time of year. Sometimes the intention is not to deprive another; that is just a necessary evil of providing for another when you have little monetarily to assist.

Why estate planning can be a New Year's resolution

The end of the holiday season is drawing near. With that comes the first days of 2016 and the standard New Year’s resolutions that people make to begin the year strong. Some pledge to lose weight, others promise to stay in contact with loved ones. Other people may diligently plan for a career change.
