Misdemeanor Defense

Sneider Law
The term "misdemeanor" means any criminal offense that is punishable under the laws of the State of Florida, or that would be punishable if committed in Florida, by a term of imprisonment in a county correctional facility, except an extended term, not in excess of one year. The term "misdemeanor" does not mean a conviction for any noncriminal traffic violation of any provision of chapter 316, F.S., or any municipal or county ordinance.

There are two different degrees of criminal misdemeanor. In a first-degree offense, the defendant has been convicted of a crime such as a first offense DUI, petit theft, identity theft, or criminal mischief over $200. The maximum fine for a 1st degree misdemeanor is $1,000, to one year in jail. On the other hand, a 2nd degree misdemeanor carries a maximum fine of $500 or 60 days in jail, and relates to criminal mischief under $200.
