Common Questions

What should I do after being arrested?

After an arrest, you have the right to remain silent. Though you must provide the arresting officer with certain information – such as your name and address – you do not need to speak about the details of the alleged crime or your arrest. You have the right to contact an attorney – and I encourage you to call me as soon as possible.

What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony? Which will I be charged with?

A misdemeanor is generally a less severe or serious crime than a felony. Misdemeanors in Florida are punishable by up to one year in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. The nature of the crime you are accused of will dictate which type of charge you receive. For example, petty theft is a misdemeanor but grand theft is a felony. Similarly, a first-offense DUI is a misdemeanor but a third-offense DUI is a felony.

What is Florida’s Three Strikes law?

Florida’s Three Strikes law was implemented as an attempt to punish repeat or habitual offenders. This law heightens penalties for anyone who has been convicted their third violent felony.

What will happen if I am convicted of a crime in Florida?

Florida imposes harsh penalties for convictions – especially for repeat offenses or felony crimes. Every case is different, but depending on the crime and the specific circumstances, you could be facing jail time, fines, probation, and other life-changing penalties. The best way to mitigate these consequences is to retain a skilled Brooksville criminal defense attorney.
