Florida residents may be familiar with a popular television series that gives viewers a first-person view of police officers on duty. Viewers tune in each week to see officers respond to calls, enforce the law and help people in need. Though certainly, police officers are often the first representatives of law enforcement, officers themselves are not immune from prosecution. One officer who appears on such a show is being fired amid allegations of DUI.
Florida parents may understand the heartache that can come when parents who do not share a household argue over custody. Sometimes, it can be difficult for a parent to obey a child custody order that limits or prohibits the individual from spending time with his or her children. Parents should be aware, however, that when it comes to matters of child custody, it is against the law to take matters into one's own hands, and if such an order is found to have been violated, a parent can face serious criminal charges.
Most Floridians are well aware of the serious consequences associated with a DUI conviction. One Florida resident went so far as to jump into the ocean to escape from law enforcement although the police eventually apprehended him.
