Were You Arrested While on Vacation in Florida?
For many, Florida is a fun vacation spot where people throughout the United States come to relax. Families throughout the United States come to explore Walt Disney World, Sea World and MGM Studios. Unfortunately for some, this vacation is less than idyllic. Many tourists each year are arrested while on vacation in Florida.
If you have been arrested, the most important thing to remember is that you have options. The criminal defense attorneys at Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law have experience representing residents of other states in Florida courts.

The lawyers at our firm are available to discuss the outstanding warrants and out-of-state extradition.
We can assist you in handling numerous court dates. In many cases, we can even appear on your behalf — possibly handling your case without requiring you to return to Florida, or at least limiting the number of returns you do need to make.
We have represented many visitors accused of a broad spectrum of tourist crimes:
- Theft crimes, including shoplifting
- Traffic violations, like speeding and reckless driving
- Drunk driving (DUI defense)
- Drug possession or other drug crimes
Our Orlando law firm also provides DUI defense for people accused of drunk driving while on vacation. We understand that many visitors to Florida are not used to drinking in our heat. Because of this, some people may make errors in judgment. When they do, they need a strong and effective DUI defense.

Arrests in Florida Lead to Consequences in Your Home State
An arrest in Florida won't just go away because you do not return to the state. If you miss a court date, a warrant could be issued for your arrest. An extradition order could then be issued, forcing your return to Florida.
Penalties levied by judges in Florida can also have other implications in your home state. For example, a drug charge may lead to driver's license suspension. This suspension also applies to your driver's license in your home state.
