Felony and Misdemeanor Charges in Fort Myers
All criminal offenses are categorized depending upon the specific penalties which may be assessed if the defendant is convicted. A misdemeanor is a lesser offense than a felony and is typically punishable by up to 12 months in county jail, whereas a felony is a more serious offense punishable by imprisonment in state prison – usually for a minimum period of 1 year. Many criminal offenses are actually “wobblers” meaning they may be classified as a felony or a misdemeanor depending upon the particular circumstances of the offense and what type of case the prosecutor pursues. In some cases, a criminal defense lawyer may be able to help ensure that a crime is not charged as a felony but is instead charged as the lesser offense of a misdemeanor.
