Felony Defense

Any felony criminal charge is a serious matter in which knowing your legal rights, legal options, and potential defense strategies may be paramount for your freedom, your future, and life's goals.

There are three basic degrees of felony crimes in the State of Florida:

  • 3rd degree felony: punishable by up to a $5,000 fine, five (5) years prison and/or probation

  • 2nd degree felony: punishable by up to a $10,000 fine, fifteen (15) years prison and/or probation

  • 1st degree felony: punishable by up to $15,000 fine, thirty (30) years prison and/or probation

Based upon special circumstances, other evidence relating to the crime, and an individual's prior criminal record, conviction penalties may be adjusted according to the sentencing guidelines of the Florida Statutes. Such as Life Imprisonment WITH the Possibility of Parole vs. Life Imprisonment WITHOUT the Possibility of Parole. Both verdicts may be handed down for the same 1st degree felony crime if the statutes allow it.
