Our Criminal Defense Practice Areas
Defendants in Florida can face stiff charges in the event of a conviction. Even misdemeanor offenses can result in jail time for as long as a year. Felonies can result in at least five years of jail time.
The state has mandatory minimum sentences, which restricts a judge’s flexibility in handing down sentences. Moreover, those sentences can be enhanced based on the circumstances and context in which the alleged crime was committed.
What all of this means is that the sooner our Panama City criminal defense attorney can go to work, the better. Just like early treatment can be life-saving in medicine, early aggressiveness can make a big difference in fighting criminal allegations.
We Fight for Your Future
Charges that can result in jail time are serious enough. But even those that don’t have prison as a consequence still have lasting effects on a person’s life. At a minimum, they can be staring at extremely high car insurance rates and a lost reputation in the community. As charges get more serious, they can hinder future efforts to obtain housing and employment.
Defendants have options, but it takes a good Panama City criminal defense lawyer to make those options a reality in our justice system.
