Types of Felonies
A felony is punishable by more than one year in a state correctional facility. Many felonies are violent crimes or serious offenses that are therefore harshly penalized. Aggravated assault, battery on a law enforcement officer, residential burglary, child abuse, possession of a controlled substance (other than marijuana), grand theft auto, murder and manslaughter, kidnapping and rape are all examples of felonies.
The degrees and corresponding penalties for felony offenses, as outlined in Florida Code Title XLVI Section 775.082, are included below:
- Capital Felony – Life in prison without parole or death penalty
- Life Felony – Life in prison and fine up to $15,000
- First Degree Felony – Up to 30 years in prison and $10,000 fine
- Second Degree Felony – Up to 15 years in prison and $10,000 fine
