Mistakes can be made. The majority of mistakes are minor and can easily be corrected. Other times, the mistakes are major ones and can leave lasting damage to property, individuals and/or an individual's reputation. In fact, Florida law enforcement officers are not above making mistakes; unfortunately, when they do, and one is wrongly accused of drug possession, the results can be damaging to an individual.
There are some actions that are almost certain to gain the attention of Florida law enforcement officers. Running a stop sign and speeding are two such actions. Thus, if one is stopped after committing one of these actions, it should come as no surprise. Furthermore, if one may have something to hide, these actions might need to be avoided as officers may take the opportunity to search for possible drug possession.
Charges are filed and the handcuffs are in place. Florida law enforcement officers have determined that an individual has been engaged in drug trafficking activity and should therefore be placed under arrest. While this may sound like an evening drama, it is real life that is played out on a regular basis throughout the state. Perhaps the most important question, though, is whether the accused individual is actually guilty of the charges.
Not all drug crimes are as obvious as others. Sometimes Florida law enforcement officers work for years to investigation a prescription drug trafficking case. Many times, more than just prescription drugs are involved, and officers spend a considerable amount of time and effort sorting through all the alleged details.
