Cruises of the Mexican Riviera and other waterways bring together a potentially volatile mix of people for a short period of time. Physical altercations and sexual encounters occur, often involving people who are drinking and unfamiliar with each other’s character and motivations.
When a criminal allegation is made aboard a cruise ship, officers are required to call in authorities — and, depending on the seriousness of the charge, that can mean the FBI. If you or a loved one has been arrested on a cruise or is currently under investigation at the Port of Los Angeles, the Port of Long Beach or elsewhere in Southern California, turn to attorney Daniel R. Perlman for informed counsel and aggressive defense representation.
