You can't let a past legal incident effect your future employment, or your education and licensing opportunities. There are proper steps to take in order to remove this legal nightmare for good.
Talk about a close shave! The owner of a Pine Hills barber shop turned his establishment into an illegal strip club, which included some dancers who were minors. Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation agents raided the business early Sunday morning, arresting the owner and a 17-year old girl "working" there as a stripper. Arrest warrants have also been issued for two other girls accused of being strippers. Authorities are checking out their ages as well.
We can forget the past, but sometimes the past won't forget us. I came across a recent story that reminded me of this.
Did you know that exploding fireworks are illegal? Yup, just in time for the 4th of July.
When citizens of Orlando head out to downtown for the night they usually just want to drink a little, eat some good food, unwind with some close friends, etc. Far too often, crimes are committed by the end of what was supposed to be a fun night out.
No matter how much it may ruin you, you must always tell the truth to the authorities. Case in point...
It's bad enough you lose your freedom when you are sentenced to some lengthy jail time, but losing all hope when it comes to finding work, after prison, is just as awful. When you have a criminal record it is not easy to find a job. Even if the charges are dropped or dismissed, the arrest can still show up.
Coming to the "Sunshine State" means a vacation full of fun. Of course, nothing ruins a FL vacation like being arrested. Forget about having to spend your free time dealing with the police and making bail, you also have to worry about taking additional time off from work to return to Florida to attend a criminal hearing. That's worse than laying out in the sun for too long!
We live in a very gun-aware society. So while this story doesn't sound too serious, you must remember the kind of world we live in today.
When you are in legal hot water you want the best defense possible. That sometimes means having to pay a hefty price for your freedom. A top notch defense lawyer isn't cheap, but it's for a good reason.
