A felony conviction could have a serious impact upon your life. The loss of your civil rights will include your right to vote, your ability to sit on a jury, and your right to own, use, or possess a firearm.
Convicted felons are often prohibited from employment in occupations involving the handling of money or valuables. A felony crime conviction can also be a significant stumbling block if you later decide to pursue a professional field of employment, such as medicine, nursing, teaching, real estate, financial services, or the practice of law.
In the State of Florida the degrees of felony crimes include:
3rd degree felony: punishable by up to a $5,000 fine, five (5) years prison and/or probation;
2nd degree felony: punishable by up to a $10,000 fine, fifteen (15) years prison and/or probation;
1st degree felony: punishable by up to $15,000 fine, thirty (30) years prison and/or probation.
