PROVIDING SKILLED DEFENSE FOR A VARIETY OF CHARGES
Being charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense is a serious matter. Although a felony is considered a more serious crime than a misdemeanor, a conviction could result in jail or prison time and fines, affecting your rights and freedoms. Additionally, if you’re found guilty of an offense, that information gets put on your criminal record, which can make it challenging to get a job, find a home, or even qualify for a student loan.
At The Wiseman Law Firm, we will fight aggressively to protect your rights and will seek to minimize the effects of a conviction on your life. Backed years of experience navigating the legal system and effectively handling cases of varying complexity, we have the know-how and skills to go up against the prosecution, whether in negotiations or at trial.
We provide effective legal counsel for various charges, including:
- Drug crimes: Because of the state’s tough-on-drugs stance, Florida harshly prosecutes drug crimes, such as possession, trafficking, and sales. The potential penalties for a conviction vary depending on the type and amount of controlled substance in question and the specifics of the circumstances.
- DUIs: Driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher or with an amount of intoxicating substance in your system impairs your normal faculties is unlawful. A first-time conviction of this offense carries with it up to 6 months in jail, up to $1,000 in fines, and a lengthy license suspension.
- Federal crimes: Engaging in criminal behavior that crosses state lines, occurs on government property, or violates federal laws can result in a charge. Generally, a conviction is punished more harshly at the federal level than at the state level.
- Resisting arrest: Resisting, obstructing, or opposing an officer is a first-degree misdemeanor offense. It is punishable by up to 1 year in jail and up to $1,000 in fines.
- Sex crimes: These offenses are aggressively prosecuted, especially if the alleged victim was a minor. The types of crimes vary from prostitution to sexual assault, and the potential penalties depend on the specifics of the circumstances. A conviction often carries not only incarceration and fines but also a requirement to register as a sex offender.
- Theft crimes: Charges for these types of offenses include, but are not limited to, burglary, shoplifting, and robbery. The potential conviction penalties depend on the type of crime committed and the value of the object stolen. If found guilty, you may also be required to pay restitution to the victim.
- Violent crimes: Violent offenses range from arson to murder, and the potential conviction penalties are severe. For instance, first-degree murder is a capital felony and is punishable by death.
- White collar crimes: Such offenses include, but are not limited to, bribery, embezzlement, computer crimes, fraud, identity theft, and money laundering. The penalties vary depending on the alleged crime and can include jail or prison time.
