In another “only in the Tampa Bay area” type of case, a 29-year old Palm Harbor man was recently arrested for assaulting his 8 1/2 month pregnant wife while aboard an AirTran Airways flight from Baltimore to Tampa.This is an interesting twist on the typical Domestic Violence case since it occured mid-flight and is therefore a Federal Crime.

Its important to remember that the State of Florida has a “pro prosecution” policy when it comes to Domestic Violence cases. That means, even if the victim may not want to press charges, the State of Florida will frequently file charges anyway. In my experience, these cases are best handled when an experienced criminal defense attorney is contacted immediately upon arrest (or even prior to a formal arrest).
