Criminal defense will likely be central focus of developing story

A recent weekend in Florida included a major police operation that authorities say led to a take down of an active drug and prostitution ring. Police arrested 15 people -- 14 women and one man -- in the raid. Ages of those arrested range from 20 to 40. As in all such situations, each person charged with illegal drug or prostitution activity will be afforded an opportunity to seek criminal defense guidance before heading to court.

Even though all 15 people were arrested in relation to a single investigation, the outcome of each situation may not necessarily be the same. Various factors impact criminal trials, including, but not limited, to a person's criminal history record. The type of defense presented in court is also typically a key factor in the end result.

Charges filed against the 15 people vary. Some are facing illegal drug possession charges. Others are accused of violating their paroles. Charges have also been filed for theft, property damage and prostitution.

A Florida sheriff's department conducted the undercover operation that led to the arrests. One of the first things a criminal defense lawyer can do for a defendant is investigate the arrest process to determine whether any Constitutional rights violations occurred. If an unlawful search or seizure took place, or any breach of protocol occurred during an arrest or booking process, an experienced attorney can use that information to challenge any or all evidence prosecutors try to present in court. In fact, challenges of this nature sometimes convince the court to dismiss a case altogether.
