Crimes in Florida are categorized as either misdemeanors or felonies. Misdemeanors are punishable by up to a maximum penalty of one year in county jail.
Felonies carry potential penalties of over one year incarceration and, depending on the offense, can be punishable by up to life imprisonment or even the death penalty. Traffic and municipal code violations may carry fines only and are not classified as crimes.
You have the right to invoke your Miranda rights, meaning you have the right to remain silent and have your attorney present when being interrogated by a law enforcement officer while in custody.
