Allegations of child abuse or neglect can generate criminal or family cases against the accused. In many cases a parent accused of child abuse or neglect by the State of Florida in a criminal case will also find themselves defending against a Supplemental Petition to Modify a parenting plan or custody. Sometimes a third case of an injunction for protection against domestic violence could also be brought.

Sex Crimes - Stings in Ocala and Gainesville

There have been two recent stings focusing on criminal sex acts or attempted criminal sex acts in Gainesville and Ocala.
