Can you be fired for a domestic violence charge?

If you are facing a domestic violence charge in Florida, your whole world may be turned upside down. You may wonder if everything in your life will be impacted, including your employment. Unfortunately, there is no clear answer. It depends a lot on your employer and equal employment laws.

How a Terry stop affects drug charges

Florida drivers who are pulled over by a law enforcement officer for a traffic violation, but also are charged with drug possession because the officer found drugs in the car when searching it, should be aware that searching their car may not be allowed during a traffic stop. As explained by the Legal Information Institute, a stop and frisk by a law enforcement officer is often called a Terry stop based on the landmark 1968 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Terry v. Ohio.

How long is a license suspension for a DUI?

If you have been pulled over for a DUI, your first thought may be about your driver's license. If you are convicted of a DUI in Florida, you will lose your license. How long the suspension is depends on whether you have prior DUIs on your record. The Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles notes the length of a driver's license suspension is longer for subsequent convictions and situations involving serious injuries or death.

Are you confused as to why you face drug possession charges?

Anytime a Florida resident faces criminal charges, he or she retains the right to challenge them. This goes for drug possession charges as well. If police placed you under arrest because they believe you were in possession of an illegal substance, it will be up to them and prosecutors to prove that was the case.

Florida's medical marijuana law

Florida is just one of many states across the nation to pass medical marijuana laws. While recreational use is still in the air in most states, medical use of the plant has seen great support from voters and those in government. In June 2017, an amendment was signed into law by the governor making medical marijuana more widely available to citizens, as reported by U.S. News & World Report.
