Woman won't get plea deal in DUI case because of court behavior

If you are accused of a serious crime, you may be offered a plea deal. Although it is likely that a plea deal will be accepted by the judge, your actions can affect it. That's why you should listen to your attorney and what he or she says is appropriate when you're in the courtroom. This woman did not, and now she faces up to seven years in prison.

What are violent crimes, and how are they penalized?

There are many different kinds of crimes that a person can commit, but none are quite as severe as violent crimes. These crimes, which include rape, assault, domestic violence and other forms of violence, are committed to threaten or injure another person. That's what makes them particularly heinous. As a result, those convicted of violent crimes are punished harshly.

Do not underestimate the penalties for white collar crimes

Facing criminal charges of any kind is a threat to your future and your freedom as a Florida resident. Regardless of the type of charges you are currently facing, you would be wise to take direct action to protect your interests in every way possible. This is particularly true if you are facing federal charges, such as any charge related to white collar crime. 

A theft charge: The penalties you may face for theft convictions

Theft is a charge that ranges in severity depending on a number of factors. For example, if you steal a candy bar, you shouldn't face the same charges as someone who steals a car. Sentencing ranges from repaying what you owe to facing time in prison.
