Felony Crimes & Potential Penalties
As you may already know, Florida law divides crimes into two categories, including misdemeanors and felonies. A felony conviction is considered to be more serious than a misdemeanor and, as such, generally demands a harsher penalty.
Within the category of felony crimes, there are also distinctions made based on the seriousness of the offense.
The classifications of felonies in Florida include:
- Capital or life felonies: Punishable by death or life imprisonment and a maximum fine of $15,000
- First-degree felonies: Punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000
- Second-degree felonies: Punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000
- Third-degree felonies: Punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $5,000
