Avoiding Severe Penalties

According to the law, numerous illegal acts are categorized as juvenile crimes in the state of Florida. When a minor has been charged with committing a juvenile crime, it is imperative that they consult a skilled attorney. Without proper legal defense, the prosecution will likely push to have the minor tried as an adult, especially if the crime is violent in nature. Being tried as an adult means much harsher sentencing and a stained criminal record for the rest of the defendant's life.

A lawyer can get involved from the onset of the legal process and provide insight and direction as the person’s case progresses. The sooner a criminal defense attorney can understand the details of the charges against the minor, the more he or she can do to provide reliable defense against the prosecution.

Additionally, a lawyer can negotiate with judges and prosecutors to possibly have the person’s criminal charges reduced, or in some cases, dismissed entirely. To learn more, contact our firm today.

Possession of Marijuana

All Charges Dropped

The client was discovered sleeping in the passenger seat of a vehicle during a traffic stop. The driver was arrested for DUI, and police found marijuana on the passenger side of the car. Our client was charged with the possession of that marijuana. To prove possession of drugs, the State must show both dominion and control and knowledge of the illegal drugs. We set the case for trial because our client was sleeping and there was no proof that our client had any knowledge that the drugs were in the vehicle. On the day of trial, the State dropped all charges.
