Lake Helen Criminal Defense



Central Florida Criminal Defense.  Criminal Defense in Lake Helen, and surrounding areas, and Volusia County Criminal Defense. Lake Helen is a relatively small and rural city in Volusia County just east of Orlando, Florida. Lake Helen is ridden with a high drug crime rate, and because of this Lake Helen also has a high degree of theft and property crime.  Because of this, it is not uncommon that citizens will find themselves in need of a Lake Helen Drug Attorney or Volusia County Drug Attorney.  In addition to the Highway Patrol and Volusia County Sheriff's Office, Lake Helen has its own police force, the Lake Helen Police Department.


Because of the police presence, there are invariably a high amount of Lake Helen arrests.  The most common criminal offenses that we see in the city of Lake Helen are: driving with a suspended license, marijuana possession, possession of cocaine (frequently crack cocaine), drug dealing and drug trafficking offenses (mostly marijuana, cocaine, or molly), DUI, and gun charges.  The Lake Helen Police Department is a highly effective Law Enforcement Agency, so if you have been arrested by LHPD, it is highly important that you do not provide them with any additional evidence that they can use against you at trial. 


If you have been arrested by the Lake Helen Police Department you will most likely first be transported to one of three location: 1) The Volusia County Jail (for the vast majority of crimes, 2) The DUI breath center, or DUI mobile breath center (if you have been arrested for driving under the influence, or 3) An investigation station where the police will attempt to conduct an interrogation with you.  If the police are interested in conducting an interrogation of you, it is extremely important that you cooperate with any interview that they request, at this point you have already been arrested and any information that you may provide to them will lessen your legal defense at trial.  If you are arrested, and the police attempt to question you, invoke your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and ask for an attorney.  At this point all questioning of you should cease according to the law.


If you have been arrested for a criminal offense in Lake Helen, it is very important to invoke your legal rights and to reach out to a Lake Helen Criminal Defense Lawyer as soon as possible.  Whether your Lake Helen criminal offense is: a Lake Helen murder charge, Lake Helen driving with a suspended license, Lake Helen dui, Lake Helen robbery, Lake Helen theft, or any Lake Helen drug crimes, does not change the circumstances of your Volusia County Criminal Defense.  Contact Brian Byrd, at ByrdLaw, PA Criminal Defense for a free consultation in reference to your Lake Helen criminal offense.
