Aggressive Defense for Misdemeanor & Felony Charges

There are varying levels of criminal offenses, including both felonies and misdemeanors. Criminal charges will be classified as a felony or misdemeanor based on the crime itself, as well as the criminal record of the individual who is accused. Repeat offenders may be charged with a felony, even in a DUI case. Felonies are the most serious of crimes in Florida, and carry the most extreme penalties. As a “convicted felon,” you may have trouble getting employment or even a place to live, which are serious considerations.

Felonies are punishable by one or more years in a state penitentiary. Common offenses include:

  • Sexual crimes
  • Aggravated assault
  • Aggravated battery
  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Armed robbery
  • Kidnapping
  • Felony DUI
  • Grand theft
  • False Imprisonment

Misdemeanors are punishable by up to one year in a county correctional facility. Common offenses include:

  • DUI offenses
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Petty theft (under $300)
  • Reckless driving
  • Domestic battery or simple battery
  • Marijuana possession (small amounts)
  • Obstruction of justice
