Types of Criminal Charges

No matter the nature of your charge, you will need to retain experienced counsel to protect your future. Violent crimes such as battery and assault are often charged as felonies, and even simple marijuana possession may ultimately cost you your freedom if you are convicted.

While the court will consider many factors for sentencing – including your past criminal record – a serious first-time conviction can still land you in prison. Florida prosecutors are also known for being particularly aggressive with drug crimes, as the state is often viewed as a “gateway” for international drug traffickers.

Here are a few of the case types we can take at Owenby Law, P.A.:

  • Drug crimes
  • First-time and felony DUI
  • Juvenile/minor crimes
  • Commercial traffic violations
  • Assault and battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Theft
  • Violations of probation

Florida Criminal Defense FAQs

Do I Need to Talk to the Police After an Arrest?

You have the right to remain silent under the United States Constitution, and this applies during and after your arrest. While you should cooperate with directions from law enforcement, do not volunteer any information (aside from basic facts like your name and address) or answer questions without an attorney present. As soon as you request a lawyer, all police questioning must stop until your counsel arrives.

What If I Was Falsely Accused?

False accusations happen all the time, but that doesn’t mean the justice system will automatically release the innocent. In 2016, more than 166 wrongly-convicted people were declared innocent in the United States alone. While it’s difficult to get the exact statistics on false imprisonment, experts currently believe that as many as 4% of the people on death row may be innocent. This is just one of the reasons it’s imperative to hire skilled counsel on your criminal case.

Will I Have to Go to Court?

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to avoid the courtroom altogether and have the charges dismissed. However, without a qualified attorney, your chances of going to trial will be significantly increased.

Let us provide the representation you need. Don’t hesitate to contact our Fleming Island defense team if you’re facing a serious criminal charge.
