FILING OF FORMAL CHARGES
As previously mentioned, the Office of the State Attorney will determine which, if any, criminal charges should be filed against the arrestee. Criminal Defense Attorney Andrew D. Stine will proactively put together a pre-filing package to help determine if the accused should have charges file against him or her.
Remember, the Law Office of Andrew D. Stine prides itself on helping individuals who have been formally arrested by Law Enforcement, but not yet had criminal charges filed against the individual by the Office of the State Attorney. As a criminal defense lawyer, serving all of Florida, I try to educate the Office of the State Attorney handling the criminal accusation on facts about the case and the defendant that the Law Enforcement Officer will not mention. In other words, Andrew D. Stine will provide the prosecuting attorney with exculpatory evidence, like a sworn statement from the alleged victim in a Felony Battery or Domestic Battery case that the victim was not touched against their will by the defendant, or that the victim wishes not to prosecute, or that the victim was the actual aggressor.
In drug cases such as, Trafficking in Oxycodone, or Possession of Marijuana with Intent to sell, or Possession of Xanax with intent to sell, or any other crime, the law office immediately picks through the evidence with a fine tooth comb to ascertain whether or not the evidence was gathered legally. More times than not the Arresting Officers violate the individual’s 4th Amendment Right when they obtain the contraband through an illegal search and seizure. If this is the issue in your criminal case, then Criminal Defense Attorney Andrew D. Stine will provide these facts to the filing prosecutor of the State Attorney’s Office which can result in the charges being reduced or dismissed all together.
Understand that when you hire the Law Office of Andrew D. Stine you may just provide yourself with a ticket to freedom through Mr. Stine’s proactive stance in handling your criminal matter before actual charges are filed by the State of Florida
