Factors that impact the accuracy of a breath test

If you find yourself pulled over on suspicion of drinking and driving in Florida, it can have a considerable impact on your life. Drinking and driving carries harsh, long-term penalties, and the law enforcement official who stops you will likely try to determine your level of impairment using a device called a Breathalyzer.

Were you charged with drunk driving after taking a breath test?

The thought of getting pulled over in Florida on suspicion of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated is enough to make anyone a bit anxious. Police officers often try to get motorists to admit to drunk driving even before a formal arrest has taken place. They may do this by asking questions regarding where a driver has been and what type of beverages they've consumed prior to getting behind the wheel. 

Drunk driving in Florida: obviously a serious matter

If your friends offer you alcohol while you're enjoying a night out together, you may be the one to politely decline if you also happen to be the one who will drive everyone home later. Perhaps you'll imbibe, but only a small glass of wine or a single beer because you don't want to get pulled over by police on suspicion of drunk driving. It's your choice, although you're likely among many in Florida whose parents raised them to believe that personal choices may affect others as well.

Woman waives hearing in connection with criminal defense

A woman being held in custody in a location outside of Florida will, in fact, be brought to this state to stand trial on federal charges. As part of her criminal defense, she recently waived an extradition hearing where it was thought she would fight against it. This is one of many types of situations that require decisions from defendants; most understand that it's often best to rely on experienced guidance as they navigate the criminal justice system.

Type of criminal defense presented may affect case outcome

One can only imagine what it would be like to be enjoying an evening in town with a loved one or friends only to have police storm through the door, instructing all patrons to pay their tabs and exit the premises. Needless to say, this would be quite an alarming way to wind down a social occasion. While it may not happen everyday in an average mom and pop local restaurant, it appears to be a rather common occurrence in a particular Florida strip club; in fact, a recent incident occurred that left several in need of criminal defense assistance.

Father of missing woman suspects man sentenced for heroin crime

A young woman has been missing in Florida since Aug. 2016. Recently, several people were sentenced with regard to heroin crimes in the area. One of those men was arrested at a residence the missing woman's father said she used to visit frequently. The father believes that the gang members recently sentenced might have information regarding his daughter's whereabouts.

Strong defense often required against Florida drug charges

Many Florida residents have experienced times in their lives when everything seemed to be going just fine, and an unexpected event occurred that turned their lives upside down. For instance, imagine you're relaxing at home and the next thing you know, police banging on your front door, asking to come in so they can take a look around. If this happens to you and you wind up being arrested on drug charges, the type of defense you present in court could affect your future.

Mixed signals on marijuana use

During the November 2016 election, Florida voters approved an amendment to the state constitution that legalizes medical marijuana beyond the therapeutic uses approved in 2014. Legalization for recreational marijuana has not yet passed, although there is an ongoing movement to make that happen. Meanwhile, it is still against the law in the Sunshine State to possess, distribute or cultivate marijuana for recreational use, and punishment can be severe.
