What do I do if I am placed under arrest?
You have the legal right not to say anything and to speak with an attorney before you speak to the police. You need not tell the police anything except your name and address. You can decide what you want to say when you go to court based upon what your lawyer recommends and you both agree on. If you have an attorney, request to see him/her immediately. If you can't afford one request a Public Defender. If you are being coerced into signing anything, do not do so and tell your attorney what occurred.

What happens if the police do not read me my rights?
If you are questioned while you are in custody without being read your rights, whatever statements that you make are not allowed to be used as evidence. Also, any evidence that would not have been found without your statement may not be used as evidence. Not being able to use this evidence may result in the charges being dismissed. If you believe your rights have been violated, you need to contact an attorney right away.

How does drug court differ from criminal court?
Drug court is a combination of the criminal justice system and medical treatment to manage drug crimes. Often sending a drug offender to jail is not effective. This is especially true for first time offenders. The focus of drug court is the rehabilitation of the individual. It is an option in which the prosecutor, defendant and the court work together to try to achieve an outcome that results in the greatest good for all parties. Once the drug court program has been successfully completed charges or sentences are often reduced or dismissed entirely.

How is a grand jury used in a drug case?
Both the state of Florida and the federal government use grand juries. It is a group of people that a prosecutor brings together for the purpose of gathering and reviewing information when criminal activity is suspected. Evidence is examined and witnesses testify. When this process is completed the grand jury decides if there is enough envied to warrant charging the defendant with drug crimes.
