Misdemeanors Your Fight Is Our Fight

Misdemeanor Crimes in Florida


Being charged with a crime can be an emotionally overwhelming situation, even if you have been charged with a misdemeanor. Although this type of crime is on as serious as a felony, a conviction can result in time spent behind bars, costly fines, and a permanent criminal record that can cause substantial damage to your professional reputation and personal life.

Common types of misdemeanors include:

  • DUI
  • Criminal Mischief
  • Reckless driving
  • Shoplifting
  • Simple assault and battery
  • Public intoxication
  • Possession of marijuana
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Prostitution
  • Driving on a suspended license

Fortunately, just because you have been arrested doesn’t mean that you are guilty. You have an opportunity to defend yourself with the help of an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer.

I am Jonathan Blecher and I want to help you obtain the most favorable outcome possible in your case. With more than three decades of experience, including time spent as a prosecutor, I can guide you through the intricacies of the criminal justice system while protecting your rights and future throughout the legal process. I can help you create an effective and personalized defense strategy to either get your entire case thrown out or reduce your charges or penalties.


There are two classes of misdemeanors in Florida: first-degree and second-degree misdemeanors. The former is more serious than the latter.

First-degree misdemeanors are punishable by a maximum one-year jail sentence and a fine not exceeding $1,000. Second-degree misdemeanors carry a maximum 60-day jail term and a fine of up to $500.


Miami is a popular destination for visitors due to our beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife. While there is plenty of opportunity for fun in the city, there is also a significant amount of room for crime and mischief.
