Types of Criminal Charges in Florida

In the state of Florida, there are two main classifications of crimes: felonies and misdemeanors. Depending on which category you charge falls into, your punishments will be more or less severe.

A misdemeanor is the less serious of the two. The maximum penalty for committing a misdemeanor is a fine of $1000 and/or up to a year in jail. Depending on the charge, an individual may be responsible for paying a fine, doing a year or less of jail time, or both.

Examples of misdemeanors include:

  • Domestic Violence
  • Petit Theft
  • DUI
  • Battery
  • Possession of Marijuana
  • Resisting Arrest

A felony is a serious crime punishable by more than a year in prison and serious court fines and costs. Whereas people charged with a misdemeanor go to county jail, those convicted of a felony must do time in state prison.

Examples of felonies include:

  • Burglary
  • Arson
  • Kidnapping
  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Sale of illegal drugs
