Types of Felony Charges in Florida

Capital Felony
In Florida, defendants convicted of capital felonies can be punished either by the death penalty or life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

Life Felony
Defendants convicted of life felonies involving lewd or lascivious molestation against someone under the age of 12 (§s. 800.04(5)(b) Florida Statutes) must serve either a term of life imprisonment or a split sentence including one term that is at least 25 years. Other life felonies warrant life imprisonment.

First Degree Felony
In most cases, first degree felonies are punishable by maximum imprisonment of 30 years. Some first degree felonies, if provided by statute, can call for a life sentence.

Second Degree Felony
Convictions for second degree felonies are punishable by up to 15 years' imprisonment.

Third Degree Felony
Convictions for third degree felonies are punishable by up to 5 years' imprisonment.

In some cases, defendants can be labeled "prison release reoffenders" (PRR). If the state attorney successfully determines that the defendant is PRR, the maximum sentence must be imposed.

Collateral Consequences of a Felony Conviction

Convicted felons may be severely restricted even after serving a prison sentence. These restrictions result from collateral consequences of felony convictions, civil penalties that are connected to convictions and mandated by statute.

In the state of Florida, if you are convicted for a felony offense, you may face the following consequences:

  • Loss of voting privileges
  • Suspension or complete revocation of professional licenses
  • Deportation (for those who are not U.S. citizens)
  • Possible loss of public assistance benefits

Statistically, convicted felons also have a more difficult time obtaining employment, applying for loans, etc. making it more difficult to acclimate back into society after serving a prison term.
