Not a good idea to smoke marijuana before drunk driving hearing

If a person is called before a Florida criminal judge with the possibility of obtaining a plea agreement in a very serious situation, it's logical to assume that person would do everything in his or her power to gain the court's favor. It's also safe to assume it would not be in a defendant's best interests to participate in any activity leading up to a particular hearing that could possibly compromise one's case. A woman charged with drunk driving after a pedestrian collision in 2016 appears to have learned a tough lesson when the judge holding the power to grant or refuse a plea agreement in her case decided to rescind the offer when she tested positive for marijuana.

Aggressive criminal defense often averts lengthy sentences

A man was recently sentenced in a Florida court to 30 years in prison. Even after he fulfills his sentence, he will remain under supervision for the rest of his life. The man has been officially listed as a habitual felony offender. Situations like this one are examples of why it is so crucial to secure experienced and aggressive criminal defense assistance before heading to court.

Clearing up confusion on Florida's marijuana laws

As many states begin to make changes to marijuana laws, it can be difficult to keep track. Different states have decided to decriminalize or legalize marijuana use according to varying circumstances and conditions.
