What is a plea negotiation?

Facing criminal allegations is more than enduring the possibility of penalties. It is also the process that the accused must go through, dealing with the possibility that their best criminal defense strategy is not one that could clear his or her name, but rather one that could reduce the consequences involved. Although it is ideal to assert a strong defense in order to have the charges dismissed or obtain a not guilty verdict, it can sometimes be more advantageous for a defendant to make a plea.

Understanding the serious nature of assault and battery charges

Assault charges and battery charges are serious criminal charges it is important for accused individuals to understand. Assault and battery charges are oftentimes referred to together or sometimes referred to interchangeably but they are two separate charges which can result in serious penalties and consequences to accused individuals.

When could a plea bargain be an option?

Although a majority of Americans, including those from Orlando, Florida and the surrounding area, are well-intentioned and try to adhere to the laws governing our land, people are human, and sometimes humans make mistakes. While most mistakes are minor in nature, there are situations where a mistake is not so minor, and it could lead to someone facing criminal charges.

Deputy faces criminal charge for alleged domestic dispute

In Orlando and throughout Florida, when law enforcement is called to investigate allegations that a domestic assault has taken place, the last thing they expect to find is that another member of law enforcement is the accused. However, it does happen. This shows that there can be a domestic incident with anyone at any time. Another fact about these cases is that people who are arrested on these charges have the right to a strong criminal defense.

Man faces assault charges after brandishing gun in road incident

Not all Florida arrests are obvious with a person committing illegal acts and getting caught during the course of them. There are times when circumstances arise and a person who would normally not have any contact with the police in a criminal case are in the middle of one and find themselves placed under arrest. One such circumstance is if there is a road rage incident. People can lose their tempers on the road and make mistakes that result in legal trouble. In these cases, a sound plan for a criminal defense is essential to achieving a positive outcome.

Don't let nerves make you chatty following a Florida arrest

For many people, an arrest or criminal charge are things only seen, whether on the streets or on TV. These things don't happen to them -- until they do. Anyone can be charged with a crime in Orlando. Everyone needs to be careful about their actions following an arrest and/or charge in order to best protect their rights and freedom.
