Understanding Misdemeanors

Under Florida law, a misdemeanor is any offense punishable by up to one year in jail. Misdemeanor convictions also often carry financial penalties.

You may be charged with a:

  • First-degree misdemeanor: Comes with a 364-day maximum jail sentence
  • Second-degree misdemeanor: Comes with a 60-day maximum jail sentence

In lieu of jail time, you may be able to enroll in a diversionary program. After successfully completing a diversionary program, your case will be dismissed.

Some examples of misdemeanor crimes include:

  • Shoplifting
  • Assault and battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Certain drug crimes
  • Probation violations
  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Trespassing
  • Some instances of DUI

Why You Need an Attorney
