Florida man arrested, accused of grand theft

Being accused of theft or robbery can lead to serious consequences, including damage to one's reputation. Some people accused of theft are arrested for stealing cars or other property. As one case in Florida recently showed, in the eyes of the law, stealing property, no matter how strange or unusual, can lead to serious legal issues.

Officers' response to domestic violence call under investigation

Sometimes arguments between couples get out of control and lead to one partner assaulting the other. When this occurs in Florida, officers must follow specific procedures when responding to domestic violence complaints. This is for the protection of everyone involved in the situation, including the person facing allegations of assault. If the accusations of domestic violence are false, the defendant could use the police reports as part of his or her criminal defense.

Florida woman convicted of multiple murders

A felony conviction can seriously impact a person's future. A felony charge is typically reserved for serious crimes of significant magnitude. If such serious charges are brought against an individual, the judge may opt to hold the person in jail without bail. The more felonies a person racks up, the more complicated and lengthy legal proceedings can become.

Shoplifting charges brought against 80-year-old woman

Workers at a Target in Davie, Florida, claim that they saw an 80-year-old woman attempting to steal merchandise from the store. The woman later claimed health issues led to her actions. It's important for the woman accused of this crime to understand her legal rights. Anyone in the Fort Lauderdale area accused of a misdemeanor or felony theft because of shoplifting may benefit from doing the same.
