Types of Misdemeanor Crimes

Crimes are typically categorized as misdemeanor crimes or felony crimes. The main difference between felonies and misdemeanors is the severity of punishment. Misdemeanor crimes can be penalized by imprisonment for one year or less.

Misdemeanor crimes may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Battery
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Driving under the influence
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Minor drug crimes
  • Minor theft crimes

Penalties for Misdemeanors in Florida

Misdemeanor crimes can be penalized with the following:

  • General misdemeanors - up to $500 fines or up to 60 days in jail, or both
  • First-degree misdemeanor - up to $1,000 fines or up to 1 year in jail, or both
  • Second-degree misdemeanor - up to $500 in fines or up to 60 days in jail, or both

Certain factors surrounding a case can either enhance or reduce penalty severity. In cases in which an individual is caught committing a crime near a church or school, or if he or she has prior convictions for the same crime, consequences can increase.
