We question field sobriety tests in our DWI cases

A previous post on this blog discussed how field sobriety tests, which many in the Tampa metro area now see as part of the police's standard routine when they are stopping a Florida motorist on suspicion of drunk driving, can in fact be an unreliable indicator of whether a person is intoxicated.

Drug trafficking is not treated lightly in Florida

The transportation of illegal drugs through the state has been a major issue in Florida for a long time. Those caught allegedly participating in this type of activity could face significant consequences if convicted in criminal court. Facing a drug trafficking charge? Let an attorney help you navigate your case.

Can a plea negotiation keep me from going to jail?

When a Florida resident is arrested for committing a crime, they will generally be arraigned in court. During their arraignment, the court will inquire as to what plea the individual will offer and although there can be alternate pleas offered individuals generally either claim to be guilty or not guilty. While an outright admission of guilt may preclude the need for a trial and may send a person to the punishment phase of their criminal processing, a not guilty plea may set them up for a longer endeavor into the criminal justice system.
