Criminal law is the area of practice that involves defending a person (Defendant) that has been charged with a crime. The charges can result in a fine, incarceration, or both. The State Attorney (Prosecutor) represents the interests of the State of Florida and decides what charges to file against the Defendant. The elements of a crime are defined by Florida statute or common law.
