Drug trafficking investigations often involve law enforcement agencies from multiple jurisdictions, including local police and federal authorities such as the DEA and Homeland Security. By the time a person is arrested on federal drug charges, you can be certain that authorities have gathered significant evidence.
If you have been accused of domestic violence, then you may be facing serious consequences beyond a criminal conviction. Such cases are very complicated -- more complicated than a prosecutor is likely to admit -- and matters of family law, employment and personal reputation can quickly become intertwined with a domestic violence allegation.
Each year people who have been convicted of violent crimes are exonerated after having served years in prison. These are tragic cases, and according to the National Registry of Exonerations, Florida has one of the highest rates of exoneration among all of the states. So far this year, 81 people have been exonerated nationwide, and since 1989 (which is as far back as the national registry goes), 1,467 individuals have been exonerated.
