If you are a golf fan, Florida resident or even just someone who reads the news, chances are you heard about the recent arrest of golfing legend Tiger Woods. Woods was arrested in Florida after police found him behind the wheel of his running car in the middle of the night.
Most people have a false sense of security when they are online. This includes people who give out their financial information without hesitancy and people who engage in criminal conduct. In either case, there are ways to get information you think you are keeping hidden.
If you have recently been charged with a drug offense, there is a very high chance that your arrest began as a traffic stop. Traffic stops give police an opportunity to talk to drivers and look around the cars for signs of drug possession or impairment.
In some cases, all it takes is an accusation of wrongdoing to place an individual in legal hot water. Perhaps you borrowed something from a neighbor, or even from your place of employment, and next thing you know, you are riding in the back of a police cruiser. Although the situation may be embarrassing at the time, what comes next might be significantly more stressful and intimidating.
Criminal charges can result from situations that may not have started as criminal offenses. Simple interactions can spiral out of control and before you know it, you could be handcuffed and in the back of a police car, facing serious penalties.
An arrest is a scary thing for any person unlucky enough to be in that situation. Between the intimidating interactions with police and the fear of a criminal conviction, any person accused of criminal conduct can be eager to just put the entire situation behind them.
