Orlando Misdemeanor Defense
In Florida, any crime that is punishable by less than one year of probation or incarceration in county jail, or less than a $1,000 fine, is considered a misdemeanor crime. Misdemeanors are considered less serious than felony crimes, and are typically handled by local courts. However, just because a misdemeanor is treated by the legal system with less severity than a felony does not mean a misdemeanor charge should be taken lightly.
A misdemeanor charge can be embarrassing, and a conviction represents a permanent blot on the defendant’s criminal record. While those facing their first conviction rarely face jail time, fines can represent a significant financial burden, and each subsequent misdemeanor conviction increases the likelihood that the defendant will be forced to face incarceration for some period of time. To avoid the repercussions that come with a misdemeanor conviction, those facing misdemeanor charges need to immediately consult with a qualified Orlando misdemeanor defense attorney.
