Getting Arrested

In Florida all of the above can result in arrest, prosecution,  jail, and even prison. For example, some people are under the mistaken impression that possession of cannabis in Florida is LEGAL. It’s NOT! And in some areas of Florida, like ST. LUCIE COUNTY, simple possession of even pitifully small amounts of weed, e.g., 1-5 grams, routinely results in arrest, $$$ spent bonding out of jail, lengthy criminal prosecution, and if convicted, sentences ranging from probation with drug-reporting, drug treatment, and drug testing requirements and even  jail sentences up to one (1) year.

Harshest Penalties in Florida

Recent studies conclusively demonstrate that ST. LUCIE COUNTY, and in fact  the  entire “TREASURE COAST”, including MARTIN, INDIAN RIVER and OKEECHOBEE Counties, consistently have some of  the State’s highest rates of incarceration and the longest jail sentences of any of  Florida’s twenty (20) Judicial Circuits. This Circuit is not Miami-Dade, folks…. wake up and smell the coffee.  It’s not Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando or Tampa either. This is the infamous 19th Judicial Circuit, where “old school” ideas about narcotics use are not the ‘exception,’  but rather ‘The Rule,’ —a rule followed by prosecutors and Judges alike throughout the Circuit. Violating the terms of a probationary sentence, even in the most minor, technical way, e.g., failing to file a report on time, in nearly all cases  in this Circuit results in the Court issuing a “no-bond” arrest warrant, with the probationer  jailed—and  no way to bond out!

Drug use and abuse is pervasive in our culture. Despite the protections of the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights, and the liberty interests underlying formation of our republic in the Declaration of Independence, our government has elected to regulate and criminalize what we put into our own bodies, even in the privacy of our homes.

    Jonathan “Jay” Kirschner helped my family deal with a number of legal challenges in the Treasure Coast and Fort Pierce areas. Jay is diligent, tenacious, firm, understanding and transparent. We’ve found him to be more in the nature of a very high-priced, boutique, full-service criminal law firm and much more honest than other attorneys we’ve spoken to over the years. Don’t laugh, there are honest and fair attorneys — not many — but Jay is definitely one! Jay is available 24/7.

    Stephanie is the best lawyer I can recommend for your needs. She helped defend me in the most professional way I could ever imagine. She was subject to many scathing emails, and resistance at every angle from the opposition, and she acted with the utmost integrity every single time. She and her entire office staff were fully invested in my case and gave several hours to make sure the results came in my favor and justice prevailed. I would use Stephanie McEnery again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to everyone who needs to win a case.

    After I was falsely accused of a crime, I contacted Stephanie McEnery, Esq. Stephanie McEnery was a true professional from the moment we met. She listened carefully to my situation, assessed, gather evidence and took action. No charges were filed against me due to Stephanie McEnery’s proactive approach to defending me. Further, Stephanie McEnery understood what my family had been going through for many years and protected my family when we filed and received an injunction for protection. If you need a defense attorney, I highly recommend a consultation with Stephanie McEnery today!

    When I look back to how desperate I was for help with my case, I’m more than grateful to have had Stephanie work with me. She showed great consideration for the situation and kept me up to date with everything. Most importantly, she always responded right away to phone calls and emails. I highly recommend hiring Stephanie to defend you; the professionalism, experience, and the compassion she had for my family were all there.
