General Criminal Defense Information

Topic: Misdemeanor Criminal Defense

In the State of Florida there are two degrees of a misdemeanor crime:

  • Second Degree Misdemeanor: punishable by up to a $500 fine, sixty (60) days jail and/or 6 months probation;
  • First Degree Misdemeanor: punishable by up to a $1000 fine, twelve (12) months jail and/or probation.

While misdemeanor crimes are considered criminal offenses which are less serious than that of felony crimes, any misdemeanor conviction carries the potential of jail time, fines, other court order penalties or mandatory programs, and a permanent criminal record.

A criminal record can interfere with various aspects of your immediate, short term or long-term life choices and goals. From housing issues, to educational opportunities, job opportunities, or even your ability to legally operate an automobile. Any situation in which you must disclose your prior criminal history, or when a criminal background check is conducted, a criminal record has the potential of standing in your way.

Misdemeanor charges may include, but are not limited to:

  • Assault or Battery
  • Boating under the influence
  • Criminal Mischief
  • DUI
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Some Domestic Violence Charges
  • Driving with a Suspended License
  • Certain Lewd & Lascivious Acts
  • Loitering and Prowling
  • Minor in Possession of Alcohol
  • Possession of Marijuana or Drug Paraphernalia
  • Disorderly intoxication
  • Prostitution / Solicitation
  • Resisting an Officer without Violence
  • Ticket Scalping
  • Theft (Petit)
  • Unauthorized Sale of Alcohol

When charged with any misdemeanor criminal offense it is important to be made fully aware of your legal rights, defense strategies, and to have aggressive, detailed, and dedicated criminal defense legal representation in your corner.
