Our Criminal Lawyers in Fort Lauderdale have been actively involved in both litigating and reporting on bullying cases in South Florida. This has been quite a serious topic following the tragic suicide of Rebecca Sedwick, a victim of cyber bullying and bullying in her school, Florida lawmakers are planning to make bullying and Cyber-Bullying in Broward County a criminal offense.
Domestic violence in Broward County has long been considered to be an offense that is fueled by private industry and the emotions of South Florida residents. Our Criminal Lawyers know this and factor that in outlining an appropriate defense strategy.
In the past 17 years as a Domestic Violence Attorney in Broward County Florida, I have been actively involved in the defense of hundreds of these cases and witness to thousands. One issue that comes up time and time again is that of the prosecutions moving forward despite the fact that they lack of cooperation from the alleged victim. I think that most local criminal defense attorneys understand that the elected state attorney and staff at the prosecutor’s office would rather not be credited with dropping a domestic violence charge in Broward County as this by nature goes against what they are geared to do. That is to seek convictions.
