Are you being accused of stalking? It could just be a misunderstanding that's gotten out of control, and that's why you need an attorney experienced with stalking and aggravated stalking cases to defend your rights.
In the state of Florida, stalking is considered to be a first degree misdemeanor and can end up getting you in jail for a year. It can also result in fines ranging up to $1,000. If the stalking charges include "credible threat of death or injury" to the victim, the penalties are more severe, possibly resulting in 5 years in a state prison and fines up to $5,000. Furthermore, in certain cases a restraining order may be placed on you, which means you must stay a certain distance from the victim at all times.
Attorney Williams can help you contest restraining orders and defend you from stalking charges. Contact him now to get your free legal evaluation.
An aggravated assault is a serious type of threat that is usually made using a deadly weapon with the intent to rape, maim or murder. It's important to note that not all jurisdictions actually use the term "aggravated assault" but for the most part, assault with a firearm (as opposed to a stick or fist) will always have more severe consequences. Even if no injury is inflicted on the victim, it is still considered a crime, so you need to speak with an attorney now about how best to defend your rights.
In Florida, many weapons offenses are considered felonies and can easily result in large fines and jail time. Even just the possession of a concealed weapon is considered a crime (misdemeanor), but the use of a deadly weapon is always considered a felony. This is why you're going to need solid representation from a skilled and experienced weapons offense attorney.

By definition, a firearm is considered "concealed" if it is hidden from the sight of another person. This can mean it is hidden in a pocket, belt, jacket, or under any type of clothing. It is also considered to be concealed if it is in a purse or bag carried by the individual.
Concealed weapon charges are serious, and can result in convictions lasting 5 years and fines over $5,000. However, there are certain circumstances where an individual can legally carry a firearm, including if an individual has a license for the weapon. Furthermore, the laws do not apply to self-defense devices, which can include stun guns or pepper spray.
