Entrapment Massage Video

Therapeutic massages offer people many benefits that can enhance their physical and mental health. While the majority of massage parlors are legitimate and offer services conducted by a licensed therapist, their reputations can be severely damaged by law enforcement stings that are often unwarranted and the result of negative reviews and false reports of wrong doing. Fortunately, you can protect your business by watching an entrapment massage video designed to keep massage businesses and their employees on the right side of the law.

Heroin ring busted in Orange County, drug agents say

The Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation is at it again. On November 20, 2013, the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation arrested sixteen (16) people for allegedly racketeering and trafficking heroin in the Central Florida area in an investigation known as "Operation Chupa Cabra." The Agents obtained arrest warrants for all of individuals and did a major round up of all of the players. An arrest warrant means that a Judge felt that there was at least probable cause to believe that these individuals were involved in this illegal activity. These arrest were in addition to four (4) other arrests, allegedly connected to the same ring, that were arrested earlier this year.

Zimmerman Arrested Again

George Zimmerman was arrested Monday, 11/16, on his second domestic violence charge in the past three months at the home of his girlfriend. The previous charge in August had been against his wife, and he was released. Law enforcement arrested Zimmerman, and he spent last night in the Seminole County jail with no bond. He goes to court Tuesday, 11/17, at 1:30 pm. Zimmerman was placed in a single cell for his own protection, but it must have been a long night for him. Early this afternoon, the judge will decide if there is enough evidence for him to remain in custody or if he should be released on bail. Deputies have received two conflicting reports on the activities that Monday, typical for a domestic violence case, but Zimmerman's story involves several inconsistencies that may difficult for him to explain. His new girlfriend, 27 year old Samantha Scheibe was renting the house in Topfield Court near Apopka where the incident occurred on Monday. 

To Talk or Not to Talk, That is the Question

talking-to-police.jpgIn my experience as a prosecutor and now at the conclusion of my first week as a criminal defense attorney a couple of common themes have arisen. First, regardless of how good you think your friend is or of how much they say they "owe you for protecting them", he or she will NEVER do time for you. Second, I have never seen a circumstance, in fourteen years of criminal law practice, where "talking to the police to give your side of the story" was ever something that helped the accused!

Federal Law Enforcement Uses Facebook to Arrest Fraud Suspects

Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation recently traveled to Orlando to arrest two individuals who were suspected of credit card fraud.

Arrested at Electric Daisy Carnival: Know that you have rights

Orlando is home to many attractions and events. This past weekend thousands of people converged on Orlando to attend the 2013 Electric Daisy Carnival. Unfortunately, at events such as this ordinary people are sometimes subjected to overreaching conduct on the part of law enforcement and security personal. Some of those encounters will inevitably result in arrests. Of those encounters that do result in arrests, many could be avoided by vocally asserting your constitutional rights in a respectful manner.

Orlando Backpage Police Stings

backpage-adult.jpgLike everything else, the sex trade has changed with the growth of the internet. But one thing has not changed. There are men willing to pay for sex, and women willing to take their money. Come to think of it, there is another thing that hasn't changed. In most of the U.S., selling or buying sexual services is illegal.

Talking to police leads to 7 felony and 1 misdemeanor charges

If you get pulled over by police, do you know what to do? Although no one should ever be disrespectful or problematic when dealing with police, all criminal defense lawyers will tell you to never talk to police without a lawyer present. Even if it seems like a relatively minor situation that is based purely on a misunderstanding, trying to clear up the situation without a lawyer is just welcoming trouble.
