Caring & Experienced Panama City Attorney

Criminal Defense against Spring Break Crimes

Panama City, FL is an extremely popular tourist destination, especially when it comes to the Spring Break crowd. In fact, every Spring Break thousands upon thousands of college students from all around the state, across the U.S. and even from abroad, come to Panama City looking to hang out, party and have a good time. It is due to the large volume of bars, parties, concerts, crowds and Spring Break activities that Panama City Beach has been recognized as "The Spring Break Capital of the World".

For some, however, all that partying has also been known to lead to legal trouble. For example, you and your friends decide to spend the evening partying at a local bar. During your time at the bar maybe you drink a little too much and then get into an argument with a few other bar patrons. That argument then escalates into a physical fight, and suddenly you are being arrested for disorderly conduct, or worse yet, assault and/or battery. Another example is someone getting behind the wheel after a night of partying and then being arrested for driving under the influence (DUI). Deciding not to get behind the wheel after a night of drinking, but choosing to walk back to your hotel could result in a public intoxication arrest. Since we all know that not every student attending Spring Break is of legal drinking age, any underage drinkers can very easily find themselves facing charges for underage consumption or teenage drinking.
