On drug possession charges and the details you need to know

To some people, drug possession is a simple criminal charge: the police catch someone carrying an illegal substance and they arrest and charge that person for their criminal offense. It seems pretty cut-and-dried, right? However, that supposedly simple drug possession charge has a few intricate legal details working in the background.

Fight for the best resolution to white collar crime charges

When Florida residents are charged with a crime, it can be a shock to the system. After all, the vast majority of Americans are law-abiding citizens who will never have any interaction with the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, dozens of people are arrested in the Pensacola area every day. However, it is the people who are arrested for white collar crimes, such as tax fraud, who may be facing the most concern.

Experienced legal help necessary after a DUI charge

In our last post on drunk driving charges, we talked about refusing to take a breath test. This is a bad idea, and if you refuse to take a breath test, you will be subject to a separate criminal charge in addition to your DUI charge. You will also be subject to additional consequences.

What happens when you refuse a breath test?

Before we even address the question in the title, it is important for us to say that no one should get behind the wheel of a vehicle when they have consumed alcohol or used drugs. Having said that, if you do get behind the wheel of a vehicle while you are intoxicated and you see the flashing lights of a police car in your rearview mirror, your thoughts will immediately scramble to try and find a way out of the situation.
