Though misdemeanors are less serious than felony offenses, they may still
have lasting effects for a convicted offender.
The following penalties may be imposed for the different classifications
of misdemeanor offenses in Florida:
First Degree – Punishable by up to 1 year in county jail and a fine of up to $1,000
Second Degree – Punishable by up to 60 days in jail
It is important to note that the specific penalties enforced by the court
may vary depending on the circumstances of the particular case, the jurisdiction
and even the judge's discretion in some cases. It is therefore important
to discuss your specific misdemeanor charges with a criminal lawyer who
can advise you on what penalties may apply for your unique case.
