Types of Misdemeanors in Florida

In Florida, there are two classes of misdemeanors: first-degree and second-degree misdemeanors. A first-degree misdemeanor is more serious, punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of $1000. Second-degree misdemeanors, alternatively, are less severe and are punishable by no more than 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.

At Haslett Law, we defend against all types of misdemeanors, including but not limited to:

  • Domestic violence
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Simple battery
  • Simple assault
  • Indecent exposure
  • Misdemeanor drug crimes
  • Reckless driving
  • Prostitution and solicitation
  • Vandalism
  • Petty theft

If you are facing misdemeanor charges, be proactive and get a lawyer involved right away. Misdemeanor convictions may not carry the extensive prison sentences and exorbitant fines that felonies do, but they can still have a profound impact on your future. If convicted, you will have a permanent criminal record that can affect your ability to get a job, rent a home, get a loan, obtain a professional license, and achieve other basic goals.
