Hate Crimes Narrowly Defined

William Moore, a criminal defense lawyer in Broward criticizes Florida law makers for seeking to enact laws that enhance criminal penalties for every crime in which there is evidence that an offender was motivated by certain prejudices.

The majority of hate crimes wind-up as heated arguments involving disagreements between local residents rather then hard-core ideologically driven violence between feuding classes or protected groups who have expressed hatred for one another. Defense Lawyers Caution About Increasing Penalties for Major Crimes.

The defining of a prejudice motivated criminal rather than as a lone outlaw transforms the social understanding of criminal offense along with hatred between rival classes.
If a hate crime category is required under Florida criminal law, Florida defense lawyers would favor the narrowest possible definition.

Client Reviews
William Moore saves the day once again... I can’t thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track...You’ll be glad he’s on your defense team, I guarantee it. Eric Bailey
William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
