Central Florida Criminal Defense Lawyer... We Can Help You
In State Court, civil cases are usually filed in the county where at least one of the parties involved resides. But, criminal cases are not always filed in the county of residence of the person accused. Criminal law cases are usually filed and tried in the county, in other words, in the venue, in which the criminal offense charged is alleged to have occured.
Sometimes, though, the prosecution does not know exactly where the criminal offense was supposedly committed, such as when near the county line or in a body of water.

Pursuant to Florida Statute and the Florida Constitution, in cases like those, the person may be charged conjunctively in two or more counties. Then, the person accused, after selecting in which of those counties he or she wants the trial to be held, would present their
criminal defense in their county of selection.

Deland is, of course, located in Volusia County, Florida. So, if a person is accused of a crime that was allegedly committed in Deland, the state criminal case would typically be filed with the Court in Volusia County and the person, with the aid of their criminal defense lawyer, would defend against the allegations there.

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 Deland, 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.

So if someone from Deland, for example, was charged with a criminal offense which was supposedly committed in Seminole County and Volusia County, it would be up to the accused to elect whether to go to trial in Volusia County or Seminole County. Of course, the prosecution would still have to prove venue.
Volusia County Courthouse
In any event, if a Deland criminal case, be it a felony or a misdemeanor, is tried in Volusia County, the trial will likely be held at the Volusia County Courthouse in Deland. And if the Deland juvenile defense is for a juvenile delinquency case, the case will also likely be heard at the Volusia County Courthouse in Deland, but by a Volusia County Juvenile Court Judge.

The City of Deland is named after its founder Henry Deland. In March of 1876, Deland, who lived in New York and had made a fortune in the baking soda business, went to visit some relatives in South Carolina. After Deland arrived in South Carolina, Deland's brother-in-law, who had recently purchased some land in Florida, convinced Deland to travel with him to Florida to see the land.

Shortly thereafter, Deland and his brother-in-law traveled into the area that later would become known as Deland. Deland was so impressed with the area that by the end of the day, Deland himself had purchased 159 acres. On his visit, Deland met with several of the settlers in the area and saw the great potential for development.

When Deland returned in October, Deland purchased more land and met with the settlers again. Deland shared with them his vision of a town based on culture and education and donated land and funds to further its development.

Then, in December, Deland again returned to the area and once again met with the settlers. At that meeting in 1876, Deland and the settlers voted to name their community "Deland."
