Drug cases are common in Florida. Local law enforcement agencies, state police and federal agencies work hard to prevent the distribution of prohibited drugs into and around the state. Officials use various methods, such as traffic stops to nab individuals who might be trafficking in drugs, or even just using recreational drugs.

Theft - taking someone else's money or property - is often a betrayal of personal trust. As is the case with many state laws, Florida law distinguishes theft as petty or grand based on the amount involved and the way it was taken.

Beyond the criminal penalties, however, social stigma is often attached to someone who has betrayed the trust of others.

A person accused of a crime will need to present a strong defense to avoid the serious repercussions of a conviction.
