If a Florida police officer stopped and arrested you for possession of a controlled substance, it means that he or she recognizes you did not intend to distribute, sell or manufacture the substance. Rather, it was obvious to the arresting officer you intended to use the drug for personal use. That said, does that mean you are off the hook? Not by a long shot.
If you are like many people in Florida, you have likely heard or read reports about someone being arrested for and charged with domestic violence. However, you may not really understand what this type of charge might entail. Understanding this is important as the definitions related to these types of offenses may be broader than what you would have suspected on your own.
