When a person is accused of committing a crime, the individual might fear the possibility of being convicted. This is because those who have committed drug offenses and other crimes in Florida may face penalties such as time behind bars and/or hefty fines. However, the person has the legal right to aggressively defend himself or herself against the accusations. One man in our state -- a deputy -- currently faces drug charges after police said he removed drugs from a crash scene.
According to police, the deputy responded to a traffic accident back in January. The accident reportedly involved a train that struck and killed a pedestrian. The deputy, said to be 40, responded to the accident scene, police said.
