There is a wide variety of behavior or conduct that can lead to Florida residents facing criminal charges. From drug charges and allegations of violent crimes to drunk driving charges and weapons possession cases, each year thousands of Florida residents will find themselves standing in front of a judge with their freedom on the line. Any arrestee needs to be prepared to develop a criminal defense strategy.
In drug cases, for example, our readers can expect to face a fierce effort from law enforcement officials and prosecutors. Unlike some other states that are focusing on treating substance abuse and dealing with the societal challenges that may lead people toward illegal drugs, Florida still maintains a heavy focus on prosecuting and jailing those who are found guilty of drug crimes. In these cases, the criminal defense strategy may be to attempt to suppress evidence, or maybe even to work toward a favorable plea bargain.
In sex crimes cases, the allegations alone can be enough to ruin a person’s life. Such a highly-charged section of crimes like these make many employers and others want to maintain their distance, even if the charge is ultimately dropped or reduced. Fighting these types of charges from the start can be a difficult burden for a criminal defendant.
