Florida Criminal Laws
If you were arrested in Florida, and charged with a crime you are probably
very nervous and confused. You may be asking yourself what do I do now? You need to find a creative, resourceful
and aggressive attorney to start to prepare your defense because the Police Department and the State Attorney's office
have already started to prepare the case against you.
This page, entitled Florida Criminal Laws, lists the Florida criminal statues. Below is a list of the Florida statutes dealing
with criminal laws. You can find the Florida statute number on the arrest affidavit or the criminal traffic citation that you received.
Then you can look below to find that statute number and click on the corresponding link to review that statute. Read the elements of the
crime, and see how the crime is classified.
Remember that there is no substitute for a consultation with a Florida
criminal defense attorney. An experienced criminal defense
attorney knows how the laws are applied,
and knows how to use the law to help defend you. It is important to retain a criminal defense lawyer as soon as
possible to ensure that your rights are protected at every step of the criminal process.
