What Is Considered Blackmail or Extortion?

As we previously mentioned, blackmail is often the same thing as extortion. Under Florida law, extortion often involves making some sort of threat with the intent to extort money or gain a financial advantage, or to compel someone to do or not do something against their will.

Extortion can involve threats such as the following:

  • To injure someone
  • To damage property or someone’s reputation
  • To accuse someone of a crime
  • To expose a secret
  • To expose a disgrace
  • To expose an extramarital affair

If you are accused of making a threat like one of these in an attempt to extort money or action out of someone else, you need a blackmail defense attorney in Miami to help you avoid the potentially severe consequences of a conviction.

What Are the Penalties for Blackmail in Florida?

Extortion is a serious crime in Florida. Classified as a second-degree felony, those who are convicted can face sentences of up to 15 years in prison, 15 years of probation, and fines of up to $10,000.

There is no mandatory minimum sentencing requirement for extortion, so it may be possible to avoid incarceration if conviction is unavoidable. A skilled blackmail defense attorney in Miami like ours at Jonathan Blecher, P.A. may be able to help you secure a favorable sentence like this if a conviction in your case is likely.
