What Penalties are You Facing?

At the Law Offices of Mark Eiglarsh, we stay current on the latest changes to sentencing laws. It is our mission to keep our clients informed of all aspects of their case, including any potential sentencing options.

During the initial free and confidential consultation, we encourage you to ask as many questions as you need, so that you can gain a thorough understanding of what you're facing and what outcomes we will aggressively and passionately pursue on your behalf.

Criminal charges are generally either misdemeanors or felonies. What specific misdemeanor crime you were charged with is determined by how many days the potential penalty may be. The typical range is between 60 days to 1 year of incarceration time. The maximum sentence you can receive for each misdemeanor count is one year in jail. How much time you're facing for a felony, depends on the nature of the charge and what degree the charge is. The chart below may assist in understanding these charges:

  • CAPITAL FELONY (e.g. First Degree Murder): The only two sentencing options are either life in prison without parole or the death penalty.
  • LIFE FELONY (e.g. Armed Robbery, Kidnapping): Punishable by life in prison without the possibility of parole + $15,000 fine.
  • FIRST DEGREE FELONY (e.g. DUI Manslaughter): Punishable by up to 30 years in prison, 30 years of probation + $10,000 fine
  • SECOND DEGREE FELONY (e.g. Aggravated Battery): Punishable by up to 15 years in prison, 15 years of probation + $5,000 fine
  • THIRD DEGREE FELONY (e.g. Possession of Cocaine): Punishable by up to five years in prison, 5 years of probation + $5,000 fine
  • FIRST DEGREE MISDEMEANOR (e.g. DUI): Punishable by up to one year in jail, one year of probation + $1,000 fine
  • SECOND DEGREE MISDEMEANOR (e.g. Driving With Suspended License): Punishable by up to 60 days in jail, six months probation + $500 fine

Felony defendants are sentenced pursuant to the Florida criminal punishment code, also known as "CPC" or "a score sheet." Each felony is given a numerical value based on a ranking system created by the Florida legislature. The higher the crime's ranking, the more points will be assessed. Once the score sheet is tallied, any total point value of less than 44 means that prison is not required, even though the judge may still chose to impose a prison sentence. Any point total over 44 points means that a state prison sentence must be imposed unless the prosecutors agree or the judge chooses to depart below the mandatory prison term as called for by legal guidelines.

Other Collateral Consequences of a Criminal Charge

Other collateral consequences of a criminal charge other than incarceration include:

  • Losing your civil rights
  • Losing your right to bear arms
  • Difficulty renting an apartment
  • Inability to obtain state and/or federal aid
