Coral Springs Criminal Lawyer Brian S. Leifert just learned that a 2008 study has found Coral Springs to be the safest city in the State of Florida. Can that be? As a former prosecutor and now a Broward County Criminal Defense Lawyer, Mr. Leifert has worked on numerous Coral Springs criminal cases from minor misdemeanor offenses to serious felony charges. At first blush, the finding seems hard to believe until it was discovered that the study conducted by “City Crime Rankings 2009-2010: Crime in Metropolitan America” only included Florida cities with populations over 75,000.
The study also limited the types of criminal cases in Coral Springs and other cities to: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and vehicle theft. It was not disclosed if the study also included juvenile cases.
Coral Springs, Florida ranked No. 48 in the United States overall. Colonie, N.Y garnered the study’s safest ranking with Camden, N.J. the worst.
Boca Raton was rated the safest city in Palm Beach County (75th overall).
