Seminole County 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.
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.

Lake Mary is, of course, located in Seminole County, Florida. So, if a person is accused of a crime that was allegedly committed in Lake Mary, the state criminal case would typically be filed with the Seminole County Court 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 Lake Mary, 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 Lake Mary, for example, was charged with a criminal offense which was supposedly committed in Orange and Seminole County, it would be up to the accused to elect whether to go to trial in Orange County or Seminole County. Of course, the prosecution would still have to prove venue.

Lake Mary was originally known as Bents, a stop on the South Florida Railroad. The area came to be known as Lake Mary after 1894, when the Rev. J.F. Sundell built a house on the north shore of the lake which he named "Lake Mary" after his wife, Mary.

Rev. Sundell had considerable influence in the Lake Mary area. A Lake Mary congregation was organized as part of the Presbytery Church of Lakeland and Rev. Sundell served as the pastor of the Lake Mary congregation for 10 years. Rev. Sundell is buried at the Lake Mary Cemetery.

The first subdivision in Lake Mary, platted in 1916, was called Modern Woodman's Winter Homes. Four years later this Lake Mary subdivision was replatted as the Crystal Lake Winter Homes. Even back then, many families were attracted to Lake Mary. This attraction to Lake Mary was due in no small part to the efforts of the Lake Mary Chamber of Commerce and the Lake Mary Tourist Club.

Lake Mary was incorporated as a city in 1973 and today, Lake Mary has a population of over fifteen thousand.
