Consequences of a Felony Crime Conviction
The consequences of a felony conviction are serious and can be life altering for you and your family. Florida law divides felony offenses into multiple categories, depending on the type of offense and seriousness of the charge. Felony crimes are split into capital, life, first, second, and third degree offenses. Capital and life felonies are the most serious charges, and they come with the most serious penalties. Capital crimes are punishable with the death penalty, and life felonies are penalized with up to life in prison and a fine up to $15,000.
First degree felony crimes are punishable with up to thirty years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. Second degree felonies are penalized with up to fifteen years in prison and a fine up to $10,000, and a third degree felony conviction comes with up to five years in prison and a fine up to $5,000.
