Defense for Criminal Cases in FL

When the state or federal government prosecutes a criminal matter, it does so to the full extent of the law. The prosecutor will work hard to secure a conviction, which means you'll need an attorney on your side who will work just as hard, if not harder, for you. Fighting your criminal charges requires thoroughly analyzing the prosecution's case against you and identifying weaknesses. This can be a time-consuming and difficult process and not one that should be handled without the help of a lawyer who has experience investigating criminal matters in both state and federal court.

At the Law Offices of Greg Rosenfeld, we provide defense for numerous cases, including:

Florida Criminal Conviction Penalties

Florida separates crimes into two categories: misdemeanors and felonies. Although you should not take a charge for either lightly, felonies are considered the more serious offenses.

The state further classifies each level of charge by degrees. The potential punishments you could face depend on various factors, including the level and degree of charge.

The maximum punishments for misdemeanors and felonies are as follows:

  • First-degree misdemeanor: 1 year in jail and/or $1,000 in fines
  • Second-degree misdemeanor: 60 days in jail and/or $500 in fines
  • Capital felony: Death
  • Life felony: Life in prison
  • First-degree felony: 30 years in prison and/or $10,000 in fines
  • Second-degree felony: 15 years in prison and/or $10,000 in fines
  • Third-degree felony: 5 years in prison and/or $5,000 in fines

The effects of a conviction can have long-lasting consequences. Not only can you be incarcerated and ordered to pay fines, but your driver's license or professional license could be suspended, and you could lose specific rights, such as that to own or purchase a firearm. Additionally, you will have a criminal record, which can make it challenging to get a job, find housing, or qualify for government benefits.
