State civil cases are typically filed with the Court in the county in which one of the parties lives. However, criminal cases are not filed with a particular Court based on where a person lives. Criminal law cases are typically filed and tried in the venue, that is, in the county, in which the criminal offense was allegedly committed.
There are cases, however, in which the prosecution does not know the precise physical location where the criminal offense was allegedly committed.

Pursuant to the Florida Constitution and to Florida Statute, in those types of cases, the person may be charged in two or more counties conjunctively. Then, the acused would have the "privilege" of electing in which of those counties he or she wants the trial to be held and would then present his or her
criminal defense in the county selected.

Altamonte Springs is, of course, located in Seminole County, Florida.

This would likely be the case even if the person actually lived in another county or another state. So the fact that a person lives in Altamonte Springs, or anywhere else for that matter, is irrevelant to where a criminal case will typically be filed and tried.

This applies to adult misdemeanor and felony criminal cases and to
juvenile delinquency or juvenile defense cases as well.

Altamonte Springs was originally known as Snow Station, a stop on the South Florida Railroad. In 1882, a group of Boston millionaires funded the Altamonte Land, Hotel and Navigation Company with the money to buy 1200 acres in the area that would later be known as Altamonte Springs. By the way, "Altamonte" comes from the Spanish words "alto" meaning "high" and "monte" meaning "hill."

In 1883, the Altamonte Land, Hotel and Navigation Company built The Altamonte Hotel. The Altamonte was a winter resort for wealthy visitors. The Altamonte was a magnificent hotel with its 130 rooms, 49 fireplaces, 500 feet of verandas, and cool pure water that was piped to the Altamonte from one of the nearby springs.

A few years after the Altamonte was built, the U.S. Post Office granted the name change from Snow Station to Altamonte Springs. And, some 33 years later, Altamonte Springs was incorporated as a town in 1920.

The Altamonte Hotel continued to cater to its wealthy winter guests until it burned down in 1953. Fifty firemen from seven communities fought the fire for 22 hours but could not save the Altamonte.
