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.

Your concealed weapons permit might not keep you out of trouble

When you received your concealed weapons permit, did you read the fine print? Many circumstances exist that prohibit you from carrying a concealed weapon despite your permit. In addition, your permit doesn't necessarily give you the right to use your weapon without restriction.

Disorderly conduct: When your public actions become a crime

Most people are on their best behavior when out in public. However, sometimes, circumstances get out of hand, and someone complains about your behavior. In some instances, the police show up to reprimand you for your behavior. If things don't go well, you could end up with a citation for disorderly conduct, or worse, you could end up in jail.

Can Florida police search your car at a DUI checkpoint?

You're driving along on a beautiful, summer evening in Florida, and as you look ahead on the road, you realize there's only one thing keeping you from getting home from the nightclub: a police roadblock. You're unsure of the reason for the stop, but begin to feel nervous even before you come in contact with the officers at the checkpoint. Since the actually stop is still three or four vehicles ahead of yours, you conduct a quick check to make sure you have your driver's license and proof of vehicle registration and insurance.
