How does domestic violence or accusations affect children?

Domestic violence has a serious effect on children. Even more serious is the effect an unwarranted accusation of domestic violence could have on your life and your children. Imagine them being told that you've done horrible things to their other parent or that they themselves have been victimized without knowing it. Children are impressionable, and accusations could threaten your relationship with yours.

Plea bargains can help keep you out of prison

If you're facing trouble with the law, one thing you may want to know more about is a plea bargain. A plea bargain has benefits and downsides. In most cases, a defendant will end up having the opportunity to accept a plea deal; in over 90 percent of convictions, plea bargains were involved. That means that fewer than 10 percent of all charges end up at trial

Facing charges of stalking? You need a serious defense.

In Florida, accusations of stalking are quite serious. If you or a loved one is facing charges or is currently under investigation for this type of crime, you would be prudent to take quick action to defend yourself and your future interests. In many situations, stalking accusations are the result of simple disputes or misunderstandings, but regardless, you have the right to defend yourself.

Florida legislators seeking changes to drug laws

Legislators in Florida are calling for drug reform, and that reform could be positive for you if you face drug charges. There are bills seeking judicial discretion for mandatory minimum sentences, which would allow judges more leeway in deciding on a person's sentence. Along with this legislation, lawmakers also hope to increase the total funding for substance abuse treatment. They would like to add another $50 million to the budget for substance abuse treatment alone.

Double jeopardy protections prevent multiple trials against you

Double jeopardy protection is an important protection for people accused of crimes. This protection prevents you from facing trial twice for the same or similar charges based on the same facts following a conviction or acquittal. This right is given to individuals in the Fifth Amendment of the United States.
