Felony drug charges made against veteran police officer

Like most people, individuals in Fort Lauderdale and the rest of Florida see a felony charge as no small matter. Felonies take up a certain amount of the Florida police force's time on a regular basis. The vast majority of law enforcement officers never become entangled in the crimes they investigate; however, a small number may stray over to the wrong side of the law for various reasons.

WPEC-Channel 12 man arrested for trying to meet juvenile for sex

The state of Florida has very strong laws to deter individuals from engaging in sexual activities with minors. In addition to criminal penalties, there is a strong social stigma attached to being convicted of sex crimes. Even those individuals who are in the midst of being prosecuted have a hard time fighting an implicit assumption that they are guilty. Boynton County police have recently arrested a 29-year-old man who works for WPEC-Channel 12 for allegedly enticing an underage boy to engage in illegal sexual activity.
