False positive cocaine analysis lands man in jail for 90 days

Sometimes, a mere traffic stop turns into a much more serious situation when Florida police officers suspect illegal activity on the driver's part. For instance, a man was stopped for driving without his headlights on and wound up getting arrested on the spot. Authorities say the man happened to be on probation at the time and was out past his curfew. Accusations involving cocaine and other drugs followed as well.

Florida’s drug offenders need treatment, not incarceration

Regardless of whether you have ever spent any time behind bars in Florida, you probably know that the state’s jails and prisons are full of prisoners serving time for drug-related offenses, many they committed to help feed their addictions.

Drug charges not the only problems these 5 people are facing

Marijuana still not legalized for recreational use in Florida

What does a 2,000 ft. tunnel and drug charges have in common?

Another criminal defense situation for Nick Gordon in Florida

Several years ago, Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was found unconscious in a bathroom. Sadly, she died approximately six months later. Nick Gordon, her boyfriend at the time, was later ordered to pay tens of millions for her wrongful death even though authorities never determined if she took her own life, was murdered or suffered from an accident. (An autopsy had revealed many drugs in her body.) Gordon, who lives in Florida, has recently found himself in another criminal defense situation involving the young lady he is now dating.

Who knows why people choose to post questionable videos of themselves on Facebook or other live action networks. Some may do it because it gives them a thrill.

One man in Florida was waving wads of money around on film one moment and then facing serious drug charges the next.

Knowing where to turn for support and to seek clarification of the laws that govern such matters may help you avoid serious problems if you're arrested on suspicion of intoxicated driving.
