A Spring Break Arrest Can Affect Your Future
Spring break brings many young people to Florida’s sunny beaches. Unfortunately, many law enforcement agencies use this annual event as an excuse to conduct mass arrests. Underage drinking is one of the most common charges, but there are many other crimes that can arise as the result of rowdy spring break celebrations. DUIs, disorderly conduct, possession of drugs and paraphernalia, assault, and many other criminal charges are common during the crowded and festive atmosphere of spring break.
It can be difficult for students and parents to know what to do after a spring break arrest. This is especially problematic for visiting students who do not live in Florida. If you are an out-of-state resident who is facing Florida criminal charges, it is essential to be represented by an experienced Miami criminal defense attorney. Criminal charges can carry consequences for your college career, professional licensures, future employability, and even access to housing and financial services.

Spring Break 2019 Arrests Have Already Began in Full Force
WKRG News 5 reports that 2019 spring break arrests are already off to an impressive start. The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office recently took to Facebook to brag about the 155 arrests it has already made this season for underage drinking. This doesn’t include other spring break arrests for DUI, disorderly conduct, and other related offenses. It is still early in the spring break season, and many more arrests are likely to be made in the coming weeks.
NWF Daily News took the time to remind readers of these other related offenses. They include Disorderly Intoxication (a violation of Section 856.011 of the Florida Statutes), hosting an open house party (a violation of Section 856.015, possessing alcohol in recreational areas (such as parks and beaches), and violations of local fire ordinances (which often prohibit bonfires on the beach, possession of fireworks, and other dangerous activities). Other local ordinances govern where dogs may be lawfully present, whether you can have glass containers on the beach, and other minute issues that could lead to misdemeanor charges. It is important to fairly resolve all charges – even minor misdemeanors or petty offenses. An unpaid fine or failure to appear in court could lead to an outstanding warrant. It is much easier to resolve the issue quickly and as soon as possible. An experienced local attorney can help ensure that your case is handled properly and does not result in problems down the road.
