Misdemeanor Crime Cases

While misdemeanor crime convictions may not carry the same severity of punishment and consequences as felony convictions, they still may involve jail time, fines, probation and other penalties which a court may impose.

It is important to know that misdemeanor crime convictions will show up in background checks, making it difficult to apply for college, employment or organizations you desire to be associated with. Having aggressive and experienced legal representation in your corner may help reduce the charges, eliminate penalties, or even have the charges dropped.

Misdemeanor Criminal Charges may include, but are not limited to:

  • Assault;

  • Boating under the influence;

  • Criminal Mischief;

  • DUI (first offense);

  • Disorderly Conduct;

  • Some Domestic Violence Charges;

  • Driving with a Suspended License;

  • Certain Lewd & Lascivious Acts;

  • Loitering and Prowling;

  • Minor in Possession of Alcohol;

  • Possession of Marijuana or Drug Paraphernalia;

  • Disorderly intoxication;

  • Prostitution / Solicitation;

  • Resisting an Officer without Violence;

  • Ticket Scalping;

  • Theft (Petit);

  • Unauthorized Sale of Alcohol.

Depending on the specific misdemeanor crime that an individual is tried for, a conviction may result in:

  • Significant fines;

  • A specified period of incarceration jail;

  • Lengthy periods probation;

  • House arrest;

  • Suspension or revocation of your driving privileges;

  • Potential vehicle forfeiture;

  • Community service;

  • And other mandatory programs or classes ordered by the court that are to be paid for out of the guilty parties own pocket.

In the State of Florida there are two degrees of misdemeanor crimes:

  • 2nd Degree Misdemeanor: punishable by up to a $500 fine, sixty (60) days jail and/or 6 months probation;

  • 1st Degree Misdemeanor: punishable by up to a $1000 fine, twelve (12) months jail and/or probation;

At Lapina Law, while representing your legal rights we will aggressively fight for your freedoms utilizing every legal resource available under the law in an effort to help you achieve the best possible resolution in the defense of misdemeanor charges or other criminal defense charges you may be facing.

If Lapina Law is hired to represent you in a misdemeanor crime case or other criminal defense legal issue, we will review and analyze all the evidence against you, all witness statements, and ensure you are fully aware of what your rights are, your legal options, and defense strategies that may best serve your specific case. Our priorities, in order include to fight to have the charges against you dropped, seek to have the charges reduced, negotiate to have you receive probation instead of incarceration, or negotiate for a diversion program (when available) that will allow the charges to be expunged after the successful completion of the diversion program.
