Misdemeanor and Felony Offenses
The two classifications of crimes in Florida are misdemeanors and felonies. A misdemeanor offense is deemed less severe than a felony and is generally punishable by less than one year of probation or jail. There may be additional sanctions including restitution, fines, and more. Depending on the circumstances of a case, a crime may be a first- or second-degree misdemeanor. Some examples of misdemeanors in Florida vandalism, shoplifting, and DUI.
A felony offense is categorized as first, second, or third-degree, depending on the nature of the offense. These are serious offenses and are punishable by more than one year of incarceration or probation. There may be other court-imposed sanctions such as hefty fines, restitution, and more. Examples of felonies are murder, drug trafficking, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and aggravated battery. For the most egregious crimes, Florida recognizes capital punishment.
A misdemeanor can be enhanced to a felony if the defendant has a previous criminal history or if there are other aggravating factors. Examples are using weapons while committing a crime, crimes against vulnerable persons, crimes in the presence of a minor, or the intent behind the crime.
