Corrections officer faces drug charges

Law enforcement in Orlando keeps a close eye on potential legal violations with drugs. This can occur as part of an investigation into high-level sales and low-level drug possession and use. It runs the gamut in the types of drugs that can lead to an arrest. This includes legal prescription medications, drugs that are not considered that serious like marijuana, and all the way to cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. Regardless of the alleged drug crimes, those who are placed under arrest must make certain to understand what they are facing and take steps to formulate a strong defense.

What are amounts and penalties for cannabis drug trafficking?

The laws regarding marijuana use and possession are in flux throughout the U.S., but there are still laws against drug trafficking with it. Legally referred to as cannabis, Florida has certain laws and penalties linked to those laws for its sale, purchase, manufacture, delivery, or bringing it into the state. For those who are charged with these violations, it is essential to understand the law, the potentially serious consequences, and how to form a defense after the arrest. The amount is one of the key factors in such a case.

Retired MLB player pursued for delinquent child support

In Florida, whether a parent is involved in a child's life or not, there are still legal requirements for the child's financial needs that must be met. If it is a person is ordered to pay to support the child and does not do so, there can be a charge of failure to pay child support and a whole host of problems. Of course, it is preferable that a parent pay child support willingly, but unfortunately, that does not always happen. Custodial parents who are pursuing a supporting parent for payment should make certain that they understand the steps they need to take with help from a qualified attorney.

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.

Oversharing on social media can turn into self-incrimination

The International Association of Chiefs of Police reports that many law enforcement agencies are using social media to notify people of safety concerns. The organization surveyed over 500 agencies in 2016 to see how law enforcement was using social media. It also found that 76 percent of those agencies used social media to seek tips on crime and 70 percent used social media platforms as intelligence gathering for investigations.
