Felony Crimes

Convictions for felony crimes can carry hefty prison sentences or long probationary periods. It is important to seek an attorney as soon as possible so that the charges based on probable cause can be challenged at the pre-filing level at the government office that is seeking to prosecute.

It is important to contact an attorney immediately to minimize your exposure. For example, if charged with a second degree felony, the law office of Jeffrey I. Reisman may be able to negotiate with the charging authority to either not file the charges or file a charge of less severity. That is why you should seek legal counsel from a Tampa criminal defense attorney in your defense against felony charges, which could include:

  • Manslaughter
  • Illegal drug abuse and sales
  • Cocaine possession
  • Grand theft
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Possession of a firearm
  • Robbery
  • Felony battery
  • Felony DUI

Depending on the type of felony you have been charged with, you could face anywhere from a year in prison to a lifetime sentence.

In general, felony crimes are punishable by a year or more in jail and/or a minimum $1,000 fine. People facing a third degree felony can be sentenced to up to five years in prison. A second degree felony charge carries the possibility of up to 15 years in prison, while a first degree felony could mean life in prison or the death penalty upon conviction.

Hiring a qualified Tampa criminal attorney can ensure an adequate defense and protection of your rights. We work diligently to negotiate with prosecutors to obtain dismissals or in the alternative plea negotiations to help you avoid prison time and possibly probation.
