Bank Robbery can lead to incarceration for life

When you are charged with robbing a bank, that is a federal crime. There is no way around it. All banks are federally insured, which means the perfectly planned bank heist can end up with the federal government and its agressive and skilled prosecutors gunning for you.

DUI manslaughter charges

When you have one too many and decide to go behind the wheel, you can easily take a life no matter how well you think you can handle your alcohol. 

Florida man faces DUI charges after hitting FHP vehicle

Being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence can lead to all kinds of problems. Aside from initial worries about convictions and criminal penalties, the arrest alone leaves a mark on your criminal record. In Florida, even if you are cleared of the charges that mark remains and is publicly accessible. For this reason, some people choose to apply for the expungement of such arrests from their records.

Inappropriate Behavior or a Sex Crime?

When you are a high school teacher you are dealing with impressional students day in, day out. There are some great days, like when you help a student achieve academic success. But there can be days that will make you want to bury your head under the covers and never come out. 

Can the Florida legal system learn from Colorado?

When Colorado made marijuana legal for recreational use, some believed that they were hoping up a "pandora's box" full of weed. What's been opened instead are less crimes for possession, prisons with less non-violent criminals and $14 million within the first month of legalization. Which added over $2 million of tax revenue into the state.

The Heartbreak of Child Neglect

There's no way to sugarcoat a story about child neglect. While defense attorneys must protect their clients from doing any prison time, when you hear a tale like this one, it makes the job at hand much more difficult. 

New legislation aims to reduce license suspensions in Florida

If you are suspected of driving under the influence, your first concern might be the possible criminal charges. However, you may also have your license revoked. For many, license suspension can be a huge problem, particularly if they need to drive to work or get their children to and from school. In Florida, a proposed transportation bill has been amended with the goal of helping certain categories of drivers acquire conditional licenses for necessary travel or to receive a reduced period of suspension.

Florida man refuses a breath test after being found unconscious

If you are suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol, you may be requested to take a breath test. Although this is optional, breath test refusal can lead to the automatic loss of your driving license. However, there are many reasons you might feel unwilling to take a breath test. Such was the case for one man in Florida recently.

Paranoia over Driving with a Suspended License

It's one of the most nerve-wracking life experiences. Seeing a police car pull up behind you, flashing their lights, blasting the siren. Even if you know you've done nothing illegal, you still feel like a criminal. 

Florida man found asleep at the wheel is charged with DUI

Different people react to alcohol in different ways, and the amount required to affect an individual's behavior varies from one person to the next. This can make it difficult to ascertain how much a person's judgment may have been impaired by intoxication. However, limits are enforced by law to discourage people from driving under the influence. In Florida, the legal limit for blood alcohol content is 0.08.

James Franco stars in "Age Of Consent: Sex Crimes Edition"

Celebrites don't want sex crimes attached to their name, just like the rest of us "normal" citizens. Especially if it means getting caught having sex with someone who is underaged. Just look at what almost happened to actor/writer/poet/student/professor James Franco.
