Most people are not scared of the word “misdemeanor” but it is a crime that can carry jail time and a fine. A Florida misdemeanor charge also stays on your record which can be a big obstacle if you are seeking employment or involved in a career that does not allow criminal charges. Even though a misdemeanor is a lesser charge than a felony, it can still cause problems for many years.

One of the most risky areas to consider, when facing misdemeanor crimes in Florida, is that Florida Judges are give “broad discretion” when sentencing cases. In short, this means you could serve up to one day or three hundred and sixty five days of jail time because the Judge is given the discretion to impose a minimum or maximum penalty at will. If the Judge is having bad day…so will you.

Misdemeanor Crimes In Florida Do Not Require An Attorney! Wrong!

Misdemeanor charges are no laughing matter. will only result in a small fine or a slap on your wrist, but you should consider that:

  • A misdemeanor charge will go on your criminal record and cause of years of obstacles.
  • If you are placed on probation, and violate the probation, you could be facing jail time.
  • “Withholding Adjudication of Guilt” is considered a conviction under Federal laws.
  • You might risk jail time without the presence of an experienced attorney.
  • An attorney might be able to get your  case dismissed on a technicality.

In Florida, it is important to be aware that you cannot have adjudication withheld unless you have first been found guilty by the court.

After a finding of guilt, the court has the option of adjudicating you guilty or withholding the adjudication of guilt.

By withholding the adjudication of guilt the court is not convicting you of the crime.

Having the adjudication of guilt withheld also leaves you eligible to have your criminal history record sealed or expunged!
