Conviction of a Violent Crime Could Mean an Extended Sentence in State Prison

Most violent crimes are felony offenses, meaning a conviction will likely result in time behind bars and other serious consequences. FL § 775.082 calls for significant penalties for violent offenders. This often includes:

  • A prison sentence served in a state facility
  • Large fines
  • Community service
  • Restitution
  • Probation

The best way to avoid harsh penalties following an allegation or arrest on suspicion of a violent crime is to stop the state attorney from pressing charges. If that is not possible, we may be able to help you avoid a conviction or lessen the severity of the charges you face. This could mean clearing your name or avoiding a felony conviction.
