If you’ve been accused of a crime, you’ll need to become very familiar with the legal system in a short amount of time. The best way do this is to consult with an experienced Lakeland misdemeanor defense attorney - lawyer, who will inform you of your legal rights and options.
Misdemeanors are crimes of a less serious nature than felonies. Florida misdemeanors may include:
A misdemeanor is a criminal offense which is typically punishable by a fine, probation, and / or jail. A 2nd degree misdemeanor is punishable by up to a $500 fine, six (6) months probation, sixty (60) days jail. A 1st degree misdemeanor is punishable by up to a $1,000 fine, twelve (12) months probation, one (1) year jail.
Misdemeanors may not carry the same threat of severe punishment and life-long consequences as felonies, but a misdemeanor conviction can nonetheless be costly, in both financial and personal terms.
Facing misdemeanor charges, while not as serious as a felony, is still a serious matter which requires a serious legal defense team in your corner.
