Misdemeanor Charges in Florida
A misdemeanor charge in Florida can result in a sentence of up to one year in jail. Misdemeanor sentences can also affect your employment, your ability to drive, and can prevent you from maintaining certain licenses. It is crucial that your misdemeanor case is handled with extreme care and caution by an experienced lawyer.
Examples of misdemeanor charges include, but are not limited to the following charges:
- Possession of alcohol by a person under 21
- Possession of fewer than 20 grams cannabis
- Violations of probation
- Possession of paraphernalia
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license
- Petit theft/Shoplifting
- Disorderly conduct
- Criminal mischief (vandalism)
- Passing bad bank checks
Many misdemeanor cases may be eligible for the Misdemeanor Diversion Program, completion of which will result in a dismissal of all charges. Our criminal defense attorneys always seek to avoid a conviction on our client’s record. If you have already been convicted of a misdemeanor, our firm can help you seek an expungement, as well.
