TAMPA HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY DEFENSES

johnbackground2In addition to your theory of defense, there are several standard defenses available to anyone charged with a crime in Florida. Where appropriate, Judges must inform the jury of these defenses. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Insanity
  • Voluntary Intoxication
  • Justifiable Use of Non-Deadly Force
  • Justifiable Use of Deadly Force
  • Alibi
  • Entrapment
  • Duress or Necessity
  • Independent Act

An experienced Tampa criminal defense attorney should know to assert these defenses in your case at the appropriate time. Strategically, it might be in your best interests to assert a defense early on, or may be required by Florida Statute or else the defense will be considered waived. Our Tampa criminal defense attorneys can file motions to dismiss based on these defenses far in advance of trial.

Did You Know?

Your lawyer cannot disclose what you tell them – even if you confess to a crime. Attorney-client privilege is designed to ensure that you are candid with your lawyer. Under most circumstances, your lawyer cannot tell anyone – a judge, the police, a jury, or your family members – what you tell them in confidence.
