Felony Defense Attorney Fort Lauderdale – JNI Law
Felonies are divided into two categories: violent and non-violent. Felony crimes that are generally classified as non-violent include: white collar crimes, such as tax evasion, embezzlement, identity theft, or bribery; drug offenses, such as drug possession, drug trafficking, or conspiracy to distribute drugs; and other generalized offenses that don’t result in bodily harm, such as fraud, forgery, burglary or felony DUI. Felony crimes which are generally classified as violent include: murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault/battery, armed robbery, sexual assault, kidnapping and other acts which cause bodily injury or death. Every kind of felony has a different level of punishment that includes terms of imprisonment and/or fines, and there are five levels:
1. Capital Felony: death or life imprisonment with no parole
2. Life Felony: life imprisonment, and a fine not exceeding $15,000
