When the charges you are facing involve felony crimes, it is imperative to get legal advice as soon as possible. Felony crimes carry potentially lengthy sentences and often come with mandatory minimums. To defend yourself, you need an experienced attorney on your side.
Felony offenses include:
Sale of Cocaine or Any Controlled Substance
Felony DUI (fourth and subsequent arrests)
Fleeing or Attempting to Elude
Grand Theft Auto
Possession of Cocaine or Heroin
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 auto, 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
