Florida Felony Charges

Although felony offenses can vary in scope and nature, Florida uses a system to classify felonies based on their seriousness and the imposed penalties. Under Florida Statute § 775.081 – 775.083, these include:

  • Third-Degree Felony – Fines up to $5,000 and up to 5 years imprisonment
  • Second-Degree Felony – Fines up to $10,000 and up to 15 years imprisonment
  • First-Degree Felony – Fines up to $10,000 and up to 30 years imprisonment.
  • Life & Capital Felony – Life sentence or death

In addition to considerable terms of imprisonment, having a felony on your criminal record can have tremendous collateral consequences. A felony conviction can limit employment opportunities or preclude a person entirely from a profession. They can also restrict your ability to vote, serve on a jury, receive certain public benefits, or own a firearm. For non-citizens, a felony can also be grounds for immigration consequences and deportation.
