Lake Mary Criminal Defense
Central Florida Criminal Defense. Criminal Defense in Lake Mary, and surrounding areas, and Seminole County Criminal Defense. Lake Mary is a relatively small and very wealthy city in Seminole County just north of Orlando, Florida. Lake Mary historically has a very low crime rate, but Lake Mary has a very high degree of property crimes and drug/alcohol offenses. In addition to the Highway Patrol and Seminole County Sheriff's Office, Lake Mary has its own police force, the Lake Mary Police Department.
Because of the police presence, there are invariably a high amount of Lake Mary arrests. The most common criminal offenses that we see in the city of Lake Mary 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 Mary Police Department is a highly effective Law Enforcement Agency, so if you have been arrested by LMPD, 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 Mary Police Department you will most likely first be transported to one of three location: 1) The Seminole 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.
