As opposed to misdemeanors, traffic violations, or what some might call infractions, felony convictions make a truly detrimental and lasting impact on an individual’s life. Felonies are reserved for what are considered to be the most egregious, alleged crimes in a civilized society. However, they too are split into classifications – each elevation meaning more jail time, and in some cases, the death penalty.
Felonies are separated into four distinct categories in Florida:
- Third Degree Felony: This is the lowest level felony, but they can still yield up to 5 years in Florida state prison if convicted. Examples of these include car theft.
- Second Degree Felony: These are punishable by up to 15 years in prison. An example of a felony of the second degree could be selling controlled substances to a minor.
- First Degree Felony: A common example of a first-degree felony is the intentional cause of great bodily harm on a police officer. These can produce up to 30 years in prison.
- Capital or Life Felonies: Capital felonies, such as first-degree murder, can result in the death penalty. Life felonies likely result in life in prison.
