About Hate Crimes in Florida

A hate crime is any crime committed against an individual based on the race, color, gender, sexual orientation, or nationality of that individual. A hate crime is considered a federal offense due to the specific targeting associated with these types of crimes. If an individual is accused of a hate crime, the normal punishments associated with that crime would be greatly increased. An individual may face a heavy fine and a few months in jail for a misdemeanor assault conviction but if the guilty individual attacked out of hate towards the victim's race, gender, or sexual orientation, that individual can be sentenced to a long sentence in federal prison.
