Petit theft charges and more: What you should know

Theft is a common crime, and it's something most people are familiar with from an early age. Children may steal from one another, or teens might try their hands at pick-pocketing people at the malls. Shoplifting, breaking into someone's home to steal items and other kinds of thefts are all under this general category of criminal acts.

Theft defenses: Avoiding a conviction

As someone who has been accused of stealing from another person, your first instinct may be to try to defend yourself. It's important that you take a step back and talk to your attorney before you do so. There is no urgency for you to try to explain yourself, and doing so could actually hurt your case.

Learn your options in a federal criminal justice case

Federal criminal charges have to be handled in a much different way than state level criminal charges. When you are dealing with the federal government, you are up against a prosecutor who has vast resources to investigate a crime. In almost every case, charges won't be levied until there is ample evidence.

Heroin laws are very harsh in Florida

Heroin is a highly addictive drug that is causing unnecessary deaths all across the country. Florida isn't any exception. The need to cut down on how many lives are claimed by this monster has led Florida to enact some pretty harsh laws when it comes to crimes related to heroin.

What is considered involuntary manslaughter in Florida?

A person can be charged with involuntary manslaughter for a host of reasons. Unlike a voluntary manslaughter charge, which requires that someone intended to kill another person, even if it was in the heat of passion, no such intent to harm or kill is required with involuntary manslaughter.

What is doctor shopping? Is it a felony?

It specifically refers to patients who go to various doctors to obtain prescriptions for the same drugs. Usually, those drugs are opiates or other narcotics.
