Oviedo Criminal Defense
Central Florida Criminal Defense. Criminal Defense in Oviedo, and surrounding areas, and Seminole County Criminal Defense. Oviedo is a relatively small and older city in Seminole County just north of Orlando, Florida. Oviedo does not have the high crime rate that is present in Sanford, FL but Oviedo has a very high degree of property crimes. In addition to the Highway Patrol and Seminole County Sheriff's Office, Oviedo has its own police force, the Oviedo Police Department. Much of the city of modern day Oviedo, Florida was built on ancient Indian land. Because of this fact, Oviedo is a favorite location for ghost-hunting adventures for teenagers.
Because of the police presence, there are invariably a high amount of Oviedo arrests. The most common criminal offenses that we see in the city of Oviedo 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 Oviedo Police Department is a highly effective Law Enforcement Agency, so if you have been arrested by WSPD, 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 Oviedo 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.
If you have been arrested for a criminal offense in Oviedo, it is very important to invoke your legal rights and to reach out to an Oviedo Criminal Defense Lawyer as soon as possible.
