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.
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.

As you know, Longwood is located in Seminole County, Florida. So if a crime allegedly took place within the Longwood city limits, the state criminal case would usually be filed with the Court in Seminole County. And naturally, the person accused would defend against the allegations there, aided of course by his or her criminal defense lawyer.

Even if the person accused actually resided in another county or another state, this would likely be the case. So the Longwood residence of the person accused would not revelant to where the criminal case would usually be filed.

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

Longwood was named by one of its early settlers, Edward Warren Henck, who arrived in Florida by steamboat in the 1870's. Henck named Longwood after a suburb in Boston which he had previously helped plat. Interestingly, the Boston suburb of Longwood was named after the district on the island of Saint Helena where Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled from 1815 to his death in 1821.

Henck was instrumental in Longwood's development. He was the first postmaster of the Longwood Post Office which was established in 1876. Henck also led the charge in the construction of the railroad that connected Sanford to Orlando and which first ran in 1880.

Henck was elected as Longwood's first mayor in 1885. His 38 room Longwood Hotel, which was constructed by Joseph Clouser, was completed in 1886. The Longwood Hotel, also known as the Longwood Village Inn, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

Longwood was incorporated as a city in 1923 and today, Longwood has a population of over thirteen thousand.
