Orlando Defense Lawyers
At The Umansky Law Firm, we specialize in defending clients accused of committing a criminal offense. For over 15 years we've helped give our clients a second chance, handling all types of cases from misdemeanors to felonies.
A misdemeanor offense in Florida is often associated with fines and community service, however in some cases you can still face jail time or probation. Here is a breakdown of the misdemeanor penalties in Florida:
First-degree misdemeanor - Up to one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.
Second-degree misdemeanor - Up to 60 days in county jail and/or a $500 fine.
Though the maximum jail sentence for a misdemeanor offense is only one year, a conviction of any type can make it difficult to find work, buy a home, or even get enrolled in higher education.
