Panama City Misdemeanor Defense Attorney

Serving Bay County, FL for 15 Years

Many people have the misconception that a misdemeanor conviction is minor – but nothing could be further from the truth. If you are convicted of a misdemeanor, it can mean jail time, probation, restitution, and very high fines. Not only can such a conviction affect your freedom, your reputation, and your wallet but it can affect your future as well. You may find yourself unable to get a job, obtain a professional license, apply for a student loan, or rent an apartment.

In the wake of any kind of criminal charge, you may be worried about how to move forward. The smart thing to do is call in a professional, someone who deals with such criminal offenses on a daily basis. You will want an attorney who knows the law, the procedures, and the appropriate tactics and who has the determination to help minimize the damage. At my firm, William Dyer Attorney at Law, I deal with these issues every day in Panama City and the surrounding areas.

What Are Misdemeanors in Florida?

Misdemeanors are lesser criminal offenses than felonies. As such, they are considered to be less serious and so incur less severe penalties. Generally, a misdemeanor carries a penalty of not more than one year of jail time. The severity of the penalties involved will depend on the seriousness of the offense. Misdemeanors can be in the first or second degree in Florida

Examples of misdemeanors in Florida include:

First-degree misdemeanors are punishable by up to one year of jail time or probation and a fine of up to $1,000. Second-degree misdemeanors are punishable by up to six months of jail time or probation and a fine of up to $500.
