Penalties for Serious Crimes in Destin, Florida

Crimes are all charged based on type and severity. This categorization creates an extensive catalogue of potential penalties you could face when convicted of a crime. There are, however, basic penalties that are generally applied at the time of sentencing.

If you are convicted and sentenced for a crime, you could face:

  • Incarceration
  • Fines and fees paid to the state
  • Community service
  • Probation time
  • License removal, such as driver’s license
  • Loss of child custody rights

The severity of each penalty will increase as the charge increases. For example, a misdemeanor theft crime will be penalized less severely than a similar theft crime that was charged as a felony.
