Fort Lauderdale Violent Crimes Attorney
Are you facing possible conviction for a violent crime?
According to the Florida Law Enforcement Agency Uniform Crime Report, there were 113,541 violent crimes in Florida last year, which is down from the prior year’s statistic of 126,260. Though the numbers have dropped significantly, if you have been accused of committing one of these violent crimes, this good news probably gives you little solace. Most violent crimes are felonies. If you end up being convicted, you will be facing severe penalties.
Florida is one of the states in the U.S. that enforces the “three strikes law”. It also enforces the death penalty. If you are convicted of a violent crime, your life as you know it may be over, possibly causing much emotional and financial hardship for your family. Florida state attorneys are known to be zealous about prosecuting violent crimes. The public is unsympathetic to violent crime, and jurors are part of the “public”. If you end up having to go to trial you may have a difficult task ahead of you.
