Traffic ViolationsThis week I ran across some different but interesting topics in the news. First, red light cameras in Fort Lauderdale have stopped working due to a class action law suite. Red light cameras automatically capture pictures of the license plate of a car, which has run a red light. It was found that a private company was giving and mailing out these tickets rather than law enforcement, which violates a state statute. It is wrong for a private company to make money off of city and state traffic violations and it is not allowed.

White Collar Crimes
MisdemeanorsViolation of probation occurs when a condition of probation is broken. General conditions of all probation (whether it is straight probation, deferred sentence probation or suspended sentence probation) are to “keep the peace and be of good behavior”. There may also be special conditions, such as continuing to be employed, abstaining from alcoholic beverages, living in a halfway house or participating in some rehabilitative or counseling program. If the prosecution believes the terms of probation have been broken, it will charge the defendant with a violation of probation. S/he will be brought to court, usually under arrest, and given a hearing on whether the conditions of probation were violated. This hearing will be in front of a judge, not a jury, whether the original offense was a misdemeanor or felony, whether the conviction occurred in District or Superior Court.
EmbezzlementTypical white – collar crimes include fraud, bribery, Ponzi schemes, insider trading, embezzlement, cybercrime, copyright infringement, money laundering, identity theft, and forgery.
Drug CrimesFederal and state drug possession laws make it a crime to willfully possess illegal controlled substances such as marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, LSD, “club drugs,” and heroin. These laws also criminalize the possession of “precursor” chemicals used in drug cultivation and manufacturing, as well as certain accessories related to drug use. Drug possession laws vary according to drug type, amount, and geographic area of the offense. Possession of small quantities may be deemed “simple” possession, while possession of large amounts may result in a charge of presumed “possession with intent to distribute.” – See more at: http://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/drug-possession-overview.html#sthash.nPsrD6of.dpuf
AssaultCharge: Our client was charged with Aggravated Assault with a Firearm, punishable by five (5) years in state prison with a mandatory minimum of three (3) years.
MurderThis week in the news a few topics circulating around the internet. The first has to do with the Aaron Hernandez case, which I think is turning out to be an interesting trial. The jury was able to go to the former Patriots star’s home so that attorneys for both stars could show off his high tech security system and map out where the security footage was taken. Another development this week is that his fiancée and the mother of his child was offered immunity by the state. This could severely hurt his case if the she testifies for the state. The prosecution has a video where they state that they can see the murder weapon. They also claim that his fiancée was the one who disposed of the weapon, and that he told her exactly what happened the night of the murder. This whole case could circle around her testimony.
Identity TheftCharge: Charged with violation of probation on a felony drug charge due to an Alabama felony charged of Identity Theft and Exploration of the Elderly.
ArsonCharge: A 50-year old wife and mother, our client was charged with Arson, a first-degree felony punishable by thirty (30) years in prison, Criminal Mischief, punishable by five (5) years in prison and Domestic Violence, a first degree misdemeanorpunishable by up to one (1) year in the county jail.
ForgeryFlorida laws are organized into chapters, which act as categories for each type of crime. The chapters make it easier to keep similar crimes grouped into their own group. For instance, burglary and tresspassing laws are related – they are under Chapter 810 – because typically one must tresspass in order to commit a burglary, among other reasons. Forgery and counterfeiting are grouped together, in Chapter 831, as they are similar in nature.
KidnappingCharge: The Defendant was charged with Count I, Kidnapping, which is a first (1st) degree felony; Count II, Neglect Child without Great Bodily Harm which is a third (3rd) degree felony; and Count III, Touch or Strike/Battery/Domestic Violence.
ManslaughterDisposition: 2 1/2 years later defendant pled to a reduced charge of Accessory to Manslaughter and was sentenced to 3 years’ probation along with a Withhold of adjudication.
