Prison Sentences for a Felony Conviction

The penalties for a felony conviction in Florida are categorized by degree of severity. Capital felonies and life felonies can result in the death sentence or life imprisonment. First-degree felonies can carry a sentence of up to 30 years in state prison. Second-degree felonies can lead to a maximum of 15 years in prison. A third-degree felony conviction can result in a sentence of up to five years in prison. In addition to prison sentences, you can receive significant fines and other harsh conditions that the court may impose. It is also important to point out that certain felonies such as those classed as a sex crime including child pornography can result in you being placed on the sex offenders registry upon your release from prison. Being on the sex offenders registry you will be subjected to certain restrictions, these could be in relation to where you can live, where you are allowed to go or even things that you access on the internet, for example, if you get found guilty of child pornography being on the sex offenders registry you will be prohibited from viewing any type of pornography even adult porn websites like dosexvideo that under normal conditions would be completely legal but whilst on the sex offenders registry will cause you to be arrested and found guilty of breaking the terms and conditions of your release and you will run the risk of being sent back to prison for a further sentence.
