Were you visiting the Florida Keys, and Key West, over Fantasy Fest weekend and arrested for a crime? If so, there is a chance that your 4th Amendment Rights to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures were violated by Monroe County Sheriff Deputies or members of the Florida Highway Patrol. Each years, hundreds of tourists visit the Florida Keys and Key West for Fantasy Fest and are wrongfully arrested for crimes they may not have committed. Just because you were in the wrong place at the wrong time does not mean that your constitutional rights should not be vigorously defended.
For example, if you were arrested on suspicion of DUI, did the officer have probable cause to request that you submit to a breathalyzer test? If you were arrested for assault and battery, were you justified in using self defense, or coming to the defense of another? If you were arrested for possession of marijuana, cocaine or a narcotic without a prescription, did you have possession or construction possession within the meaning of the law? These are just a few of the questions that must be investigated fully in the event you were arrested while on vacation in Key West and the Florida Keys.
