The former manager of Opa-locka has been sentenced as the result of a years-long federal corruption case.

A 46-year-old Florida man is facing two charges of bribery and one charge of official misconduct.

Florida construction company faces white collar crime charges

A Florida construction company has been hit with a lawsuit after a recent ongoing Fort Lauderdale dispute.

The suit was recently filed in Broward County Circuit Court and involves a $4.75 million construction contract.

Florida will extradite man accused of white collar crime

When authorities pull someone over in a traffic stop, they often run a background check using that person's identification information.

The crimes the man is said to have committed include stolen money and illicit use of another individual's personal identity information.

A man in Florida recently faced charges related to his deceased mother. The 56-year-old man may face up to more than a decade behind bars if things don't go his way at his sentencing hearing.

Federal drug trafficking problematic in some Florida areas

The beautiful state of Florida is known for many things, including its beautiful shores, popular tourist attractions, and, unfortunately, drug-related crimes. Interstate 95 is an apparently commonly traveled route for those who take part in federal drug trafficking schemes. The government takes such crimes very seriously, and prosecution tends to be quite aggressive; therefore, if one charged with such crimes hopes to obtain any sort of positive outcome, it is crucial to employ the best possible defense strategies.
