Charged with a Misdemeanor:

At one point or another, everyone has committed a minor crime, be it speeding or a parking violation or shoplifting. Misdemeanors are common criminal infractions that can have major repercussions if not promptly addressed by dedicated and experienced criminal defense lawyers.

There are two different types of misdemeanors in Florida. The first type, a “first degree” misdemeanor is a crime punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. These crimes are far more serious that “second degree” misdemeanors, which are punishable by 60 days in jail.

Some common misdemeanors in South Florida include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Boating under the influence

Charged with a Felony:

Felonies in South Florida are very serious crimes. Unlike misdemeanors, felonies can have serious repercussions that can last a lifetime, are punishable by time in a state prison, and large and life-changing fines. Furthermore, people convicted of felonies in Florida carry the undesirable distinction of being known as a convicted felon, which carries many negative connotations such as not being able to live where you want, inability to vote or own firearms, and the inability to move out of state.
Felonies in Florida are gauged by severity and how they affect other people and society at large. Some of the most common types of felonies in South Florida include:

  • Aggravated Battery (with a deadly weapon or serious bodily injury, or to an elderly person, pregnant woman, or peace officer.)
  • Aggravated Fleeing to Elude
  • Child Abuse
  • Computer crimes (larceny of money or intellectual property or possession of pornographic, lewd, and lascivious material.)
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Drug Possession/Delivery
  • Felony Battery
  • Felony DUI/DWLS with serious injury/death or prior convictions
  • Forgery
  • Fraud
  • Grand Theft
  • Homicide
  • Lewd & Lascivious conduct
  • Possession of concealed or with a prior felony
  • Racketeering
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Sexual Battery
