Florida is a hot bed of drug use and distribution, as its location makes it easier to import a variety of illegal substances, with cocaine being a popular one. If you face a drug charge, whether it be possession, manufacturing, distribution or trafficking, you may think a conviction means automatic jail time. However, you may be able to avoid jail if your attorney is able to come up with a good defense, and even with a conviction jail is not necessarily the route you will have to take.
You must protect your rights when facing drug charges. One of the best ways to do this is to know what you could encounter in an investigation. Understanding how Florida police will investigate your case can give you the advantage.
When you think of domestic abuse in Florida, you may imagine physical violence. This is one form that abuse may take, and unfortunately, it often does. However, domestic violence is not limited to physical forms of abuse. A family member or significant other may abuse you psychologically and/or emotionally without ever raising a hand against you. One of the most specific and frightening of these nonviolent forms of abuse is gaslighting.
