3 Things You Didn’t Think Were a Crime

Have you ever heard of the Latin phrase “Dura Lex, Sed Lex”? Translated it means “The law is harsh, but it is the law”. Oftentimes, law enforcement authorities remember this phrase when they apprehend someone for committing simple acts that were made illegal. If you’re ever caught committing an act you didn’t think was a crime, getting in touch with a probation lawyer in West Palm Beach can help you go through the process.

Laws That Are Outdated and Unenforced but Should Still Be Abided

Rolling Barrels

In the City of Pensacola, Florida, the mere act of rolling a barrel down the street is considered illegal. Committing this simple act will make you liable for a fine, depending on the weight and contents of the barrel. For instance, if you were caught rolling a heavy barrel with alcohol inside, you will face a greater fine as compared to a rolling empty barrel.

However, it is unclear whether the law punishes the act of rolling a barrel accidentally or with your knowledge. Either way, just make sure you don’t roll a barrel in Pensacola.

Outward Door Opening

A Florida Statute mandates that all the doors of a public building should open outwards. It was passed into law to allow people to evacuate the establishment quicker during a fire, accident, or any catastrophe. Additionally, the statute aims to address door damage and other related problems when hurricane winds force or blow the doors inward.

Hair Salon Etiquette

When you’re planning to go to the salon the next day, make sure you get a good night’s rest. In Florida, it is illegal for someone to fall asleep under a hairdryer at a salon. If you are caught by law enforcement authorities, you and the salon will be made to pay the fine.

Better call Saul? More like, BETTER CALL OLSON!

“David W. Olson is the best lawyer I have come across. He truly will sit and listen to your story and no matter what he will fight for your rights. He is very compassionate, and understanding. He will work with you and does his job with a good heart. Mr. Olson truly has saved my life and gave me a second chance. You wont go wrong with hiring David Olson as your attorney. I highly recommend him and I am proud to have chosen him as my attorney.”


Found the Best!

“David Olson has represented me on two occasions. I have since referred two of my friends and my nephew to him, and they have all told me they’ll always be grateful for that. Mr. Olson somehow had the charges dropped in both of my cases (actually, I do know how, because he and his staff answered all my questions and explained in detail things that I never would have thought of).”


Compassionate Attorney

"My husband and I hired Mr. Olson to represent our son a Florida gun shot victim. We are New Jersey residents. From day one we felt comfortable with Mr. Olson and found him to be easy to talk to and a very good listener. This was important to us after our horrible experience with another attorney who was more concerned with hearing himself speak than our wishes."


Personable and Highly Intelligent!

“I saw David today to discuss some possible outcomes and possibilities of a probable future case. I did not know if I was going to be charged at all but I wanted to speak to someone to get a better idea of what I was looking at and what my options were. As soon as I shook his hand I felt very comfortable and respected. I laid it all out for him and asked him every last question I had, all of which were answered respectfully and intelligently.”


The Best of the Best

"I have known David Olson for over 20 yrs. now and have had my rough times in my past and unfortunately I ended up in trouble with the law and really needed help from a real lawyer. I needed someone to listen to my side of the story and really fight my cases in court for me and get the BEST results for my cases. A very close friend said the man for the job is David W Olson; So I contacted him & he came to me the very next day to hear me out and I knew he was the lawyer that would do the best for me and he did.”

Hearty Recommendation

"I hired Mr. Olson from recommendation by family member. He was immediately behind my situation and put me completely at ease. There were no false promises, very upfront as far as expectations and outcomes.

His assistant, Jessica was a joy to work with as well. They came to my house, interviewed witnesses, went above and beyond and always respond to my calls. I totally endorse this attorney."
