Criminal defense often next step after police show up at the door

It's not every day people dressed in Homeland Security shirts show up at a home in Florida. That's exactly what happened recently, however, when police and federal agents moved in on a private residence to conduct a search. Such situations often necessitate criminal defense assistance for those involved, which is likely what the woman who was taken into custody is pursuing.

The home in question is in Fort Myers.  Two men were apparently handcuffed to chairs in the yard while investigators and K-9 units searched the property and sniffed several cars that were there. When reporters approached authorities after the Wednesday raid, officials refused to speak about the incident, claiming they weren't at liberty to do so since it was part of an ongoing investigation.

A woman who happened to be in the home at the time was later seen being led away in police custody. It's not known whether she was charged with a crime. When police start rummaging about someone's home in plain sight, neighbors and other passersby may wonder what's going on. This can no doubt place a resident's reputation at risk even when all details are not known.

Being arrested or accused of a crime in Florida (or anywhere) does not constitute guilt. A person charged may request immediate criminal defense assistance; in fact, this can be done even before charges are filed if someone learns that he or she is subject of a law enforcement investigation. An experienced criminal lawyer is fully prepared to address any issues that arise in court and can often successfully combat tactics and strategies employed by prosecutors in their quests to obtain convictions.
