Felony charges are the most severe of all Florida cases. A felony is any offense where sentencing may include incarceration of one year or more. An adjudication of guilt of any felony offense has horrible consequences. Being a convicted felon immediately (and in most cases, permanently) affects your constitutional rights. This means you lose your ability to vote, own or possess firearms and other weapons, and you may suffer other collateral damage. Many convicted felons have difficulty obtaining and maintaining meaningful employment and securing housing. In many instances, convicted felons cannot even obtain loans or attend school.
