In Florida crimes are divided into two categories: felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies are more serious crimes that can result in very harsh penalties. Misdemeanors involve less serious crimes, such as shoplifting, trespassing, or assault. While misdemeanors may carry lesser penalties than felonies, the consequences of a misdemeanor conviction could still affect a person's ability to find work or housing.
