2 South Florida men facing stolen property charges

Two Florida men were recently arrested in connection with the alleged theft of a number of vehicles in Stuart and Palm Beach counties. The case is especially interesting because one of the defendants appears to have never been told that he was involved in theft, though according to the arrest reports, he did say that he suspected he was dealing in stolen property.

Pompano Beach man says Broward deputies were wrong to shoot him

We've discussed previously how police officers sometimes use questionable tactics that result in criminal charges being reduced or dismissed. Authorities in Broward County and throughout the country have obligations to conduct any arrest or investigation in accordance with the law, and one young man from Pompano Beach says the officers who arrested him failed to uphold those standards. The police, however, tell a different story.

Domestic dispute leads to battery charge for Deerfield Beach man

Not everyone who is accused of a violent crime is guilty of the charges. Sometimes, and especially with claims of domestic violence, emotions between individuals run high, and police officers end up filing charges that may not really fit a particular situation. In other instances, when an individual is accused of domestic violence, a significant reduction of charges -- not necessarily an acquittal -- is the best option available. Sentencing can also be mitigated after a careful look at the circumstances of the incident in question.
