In Florida, criminal traffic offenses are charged as misdemeanors or felonies, leading to a permanent criminal record for the alleged or convicted offender. These crimes are punishable according to the extent of injuries, death, or property damage caused by a driver’s negligent or malicious intent. The consequences for habitual traffic offenders are heightened and can be quite severe. A criminal conviction can mean jail time, incarceration, probation, fines, using an ignition interlock device, license suspension, or revocation. In addition, a conviction will increase motor vehicle insurance premiums and damage the offender’s reputation.

Challenging Evidence and Witnesses
A key aspect of an aggressive defense is challenging the evidence presented by the prosecution. As a former prosecutor, Attorney David Webster knows how to examine and question the evidence, including police reports, witness statements, and any forensic or scientific data. He can identify weaknesses, inconsistencies, or potential rights violations in a prosecutor’s case. Additionally, cross-examining witnesses exposes any inconsistencies or biases that may weaken their credibility. By effectively challenging the evidence and witnesses, our defense team can strengthen your case and create reasonable doubt in the minds of the judge or jury.
In some cases, negotiating with the prosecution may be the best course of action. Our law firm excels at skillful negotiation, advocating for reduced charges or alternative sentencing options.
