Does it matter where I was arrested, like near a school, in determining how I am charged?


Back to Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Frequently Asked Questions

Video Transcription

State legislatures, and the Federal Government have enacted many laws that state that penalties are enhanced if certain crimes, like for example, drug crimes are committed close to a church, close to a school. They want to do that to make the punishments even more severe. Of course, none of these laws are necessary because the punishments allow the statutory maximums as it’s called, are so severe in almost every case, that these laws are unnecessary. Laws are enacted because of lobbying. For example, certain crimes against the elderly are punished more severely just like crimes that take place by schools, by churches, etc.
