Resisting and other Law Enforcement-Related Offenses
Central Florida Criminal Defense. Criminal defense in Orlando, and surrounding areas. The State Attorney's Office and Law Enforcement have a very special relationship. Law enforcement investigates possible crime, and then hands over their case to the Office of the State Attorney who then aggressively prosecutes these criminal cases in a Courtroom. This type of close working relationship fosters goodwill and favoritism towards Law Enforcement and the prosecuting authority. It is for this reason that you can be almost certain that the State Attorney's Office will aggresively prosecute your case if you are charged with a criminal offense against Law Enforcement.
The most common crime that we see of this kind in Orlando, Orange County, Osceola County, Seminole County, Volusia County, or Brevard County Florida is the criminal offense of Resisting without Violence and Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer. Resisting without violence can be frequently confusing to citizens because they do not equate what they did as criminal activity. Legally, there is a very fine line between disagreement with a Law Enforcement Officer and Resisting without violence. There are several potential legal or factual defenses to these crimes, however. Below is a list of the frequently charged and prosecuted law enforcement related criminal offenses.
