Spring break is typically a time when students can put down the books, take a break from the stressful assignments and projects, relax and recharge their batteries.
Unfortunately, we have seen many spring break vacations quickly turn into a legal nightmare when criminal charges are alleged.
While our criminal defense lawyers do help students and others from out of state that are facing criminal charges in Monroe County and in the Florida Keys, we prefer your spring break be a relaxing, fun and stress-free time.
The Law Offices of Samuel J. Kaufman, PA urge parents to discuss spring break plans with your children. Speak to them about the laws and remind them that most of these crimes are avoidable with a small amount of planning.
Do speak with your children about marijuana. Remind them that it is not legal in any amount, in the State of Florida, yet (not even medicinally).
Remind them that they have options not to drink and drive; to plan ahead a have a designated driver, or call a cab. Let them know if they do get a DUI while on spring break, it will negatively impact them even if they live in a different state. The record will still be transmitted to their state of residence and put on their driving record there and will follow them all the way back to school and for the rest of their lives. It’s much better to bring back a different kind of souvenir.
