Early Intervention can be Important for You
Just because someone is arrested, it does not mean they will be charged with a crime. The State Attorney must file a formal charge. They do this with a document called an Information or by seeking an Indictment from a Grand Jury. It is important to contact an attorney early. Early intervention by an experienced attorney and one familiar with the processes can make the difference on whether or not your case is filed, dropped to a lesser defense, dismissed, or in what type of charge may be filed. Once a charge is filed by the State Attorney, it may be more difficult to get it reduced or dropped. The fact that Larry Sandefer is a former Division Director, and Lead Trial Attorney while a prosecutor ensures the experience and credibility necessary to represent your interests effectively before the State Attorney’s Office and the Court.
In the Bay Area, including Pinellas County, Hillsborough County, and Pasco County, law enforcement takes an aggressive stance regarding DUI investigations, drug trafficking, domestic violence, sex crimes, and Internet crimes. They are also aggressive towards many other charges including lewd and lascivious behavior, false or forged prescriptions, doctor shopping, child abuse, elderly abuse, consumer crimes, white collar crime, home invasion, weapons offenses and other ‘target’ crimes. You should select an attorney experienced in handling these matters.
