The criminal justice system can be extremely complex and overwhelming. Furthermore, if you are convicted of a crime, specifically a felony, the consequences can be dire. Did you know that the incarceration rate in the United States is much higher than that of many other countries? Prison sentences are getting longer and more frequent. Because sentences are becoming more stringent, it is important to understand your rights if confronted with a charge. A local story discusses a teen that will have to challenge felonious accusations.
At 17, a Florida teen allegedly posed as a physician's assistant and provided patients with regular care at a local medical facility. A recent article explains that this same teen, now 18, has experienced another run-in with the law. Recently, he was arrested for posing as an Osceola police officer.
