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, murder, 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
  • Third Degree Felony – Up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine

4 Benefits of Hiring a Criminal Attorney

  • Guidance

    You may know nothing about the criminal system and may be confused on what to do next. You'll need an attorney who will guide you through the entire process to make things a little easier for you.

  • Relationships

    Our attorneys have been working in the courts for a long time and have developed positive relationships with all the people you may face during your case. This can help improve the position in your case, which can help your outcome.

  • Knowledge

    You won't be able to look into all the possibilities alone. Your criminal attorney is well-versed in criminal law and will be able to provide you with a strong strategy and turn the odds in your favor.

  • Building a Case

    Unlike a prosecutor, a criminal defense attorney will spend the time to build a strong case to help by dismissing your case or reducing the penalties.
