Legal Assistance from a Tampa Criminal Defense Attorney

As Tampa criminal defense attorneys, we can help build a strong defense to your case. This is a complex situation to handle, especially without the legal defense of an attorney from our firm. It is important to remember that the consent of the individual or organization is not a valid defense for the offender. With a comprehensive and educated knowledge of the Florida hazing laws, one of our lawyers from Thomas & Paulk can assist your family through this difficult legal battle. Hazing is listed in the Florida Statute under Title XLVIII, Chapter 1006.63.

If you or your child is charged with hazing, it is important to obtain the legal defense you need. The state of Florida has a distinct definition of hazing that is classified as the action of intentionally endangering the mental or physical health of a student for the purpose of initiation.

Hazing may include several actions, including:

  • Coercing a student into violating a law
  • Any brutality with a physical and violent nature
  • Forcing extreme mental stress
  • Forced activity that affects mental health
  • Forced sleep deprivation or exclusion

Hazing is a criminal offense that must be handled with careful attention to the details of the event. At Thomas & Paulk, we can help you examine the evidence against you and begin to develop a strong defense. The attorney you choose to represent your case can have a large role in the outcome of your case. For that reason, it is essential to choose a dedicated and qualified attorney from our firm.
