Will a court uphold a DUI for riding a horse while intoxicated?

You know that you can get a DUI if you drive a vehicle while you're intoxicated with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher. What you may not know are all the different things that are considered to be vehicles. A bicycle might be considered to be a vehicle, and so is a truck or car. In this case, a woman faced a DUI because she allegedly rode a horse while intoxicated.

Man pleads guilty to 4 killings on witness stand

An ex-Parkland student is facing the death penalty after being found guilty of four deaths in Florida. According to the story from Nov. 17, the man described how he killed four people in 2014. One of them was his ex-girlfriend, who he shot to death. He also was found guilty of killing her new boyfriend, her father and her mother.

How are crimes investigated when the police are involved?

The police investigate crimes after one is committed. Whether it's a drunk driver hitting another person or someone opening fire in a crowded room, the police have a hard job. They have to find out who committed a crime and if they already know, they need to find as much evidence as possible at the scene.

Is a misdemeanor a serious charge?

If you think a misdemeanor is no big deal, you couldn't be more incorrect. While you're not likely to head to prison and may not face the largest of fines, convictions affect you in other ways, too. Even if the penalties for your misdemeanor seem minor, they can affect your everyday life. How? They hurt your reputation.

What should you know about accomplice liability?

If you've been charged with complicity, that means the police believe that you somehow aided a criminal act. No matter how small you think your part in the crime actually was, accomplice liability is no small issue -- you can end up doing just as much time behind bars as the person who actually committed the crime.

What type of conduct is considered disorderly?

You've likely heard it said that what goes on behind closed doors isn't anyone's business. The same can't be said for public behavior, however. In Florida or anywhere you go throughout the United States, there are laws to define what are acceptable public displays of behavior. Above and beyond that, there are also laws that clearly state that certain types of behavior are not only unacceptable but unlawful as well. The trick to staying out of trouble, then, is knowing the difference.

Pointing a finger gun at an officer could earn Florida man jail

Finger guns, the kind you make with your first two fingers and your thumb, are generally the sort of thing that you would expect only grade-school kids to take seriously -- unless you happen to point one at an officer of the law and make a little threat while you're doing it.
