If you have been arrested, charged or believe that you are under investigation by a local police department, County Sheriff or Florida Highway Patrol, you will most likely be prosecuted in a Florida state court for the county where the alleged offense took place. These offenses are referred to as state crimes which are violations of state and local statutes or ordinances. They are prosecuted in either county or circuit courts in the county in which the charges are filed, by the state attorney. In some cases, early intervention by an experienced criminal defense attorney can even prevent an arrest or even prosecution.
