UCF Student arrests

If you are a student at UCF and you have been arrested for anything you can be subject to school discipline and criminal charges that you have to go to court for. Do not go to court alone, hire a criminal defense attorney to help assist you.

If you leave the scene of the accident you can be charged with a criminal offense and arrested or given a notice to appear in court.

Concealed Firearm at Airport

Many people in Florida have concealed weapons permits and can legally carry a firearm in public but at times this could be a crime and you could be arrested if you are in the wrong location.   Even if you possess a valid concealed weapons permit it is still illegal in the state of Florida to carry a firearm at the airport.   For the most part you cannot be restricted or told where you can and cannot carry a firearm, however there are exceptions which include:

Surveillance cameras in Orlando make some citizens uncomfortable

Over the course of the past few years the city of Orlando has invested a large amount of taxpayer money in surveillance cameras that were placed throughout the city.
