You Are Facing Charges. How You Respond Is Everything.

The reality is that the Police Officer who arrested you believes everyone he arrests is guilty. The State Attorney who is prosecuting you wants to punish you so he can be seen as "tough on crime" and to deter others from committing crimes. The state of Florida also limits the power of the Judge in how he sentences you.
