Being charged with a serious crime may cause a person to feel hopeless, as if there is no way he or she can avoid being convicted. However, a person who's been charged with a felony in Florida, such as murder, will always be deemed innocent unless prosecutors can adequately prove that he or she committed the crime for which he or she is charged. It is the job of the criminal defense to ensure that the accused person's rights are never violated during the criminal proceeding.
One man in Florida was recently arrested on charges of murder in the first degree. The 44-year-old man allegedly picked up one woman, said to be 24, and then killed her. Police said he then transported the woman's body to a river and hid her there. The next day, a kayaker discovered her, authorities reported.
