In Florida, the State enhance penalties and charging levels (misdemeanor vs. felony) for repeat offenses. Even petty shoplifting can be upgraded to a felony if you are a repeat offender. One of the most common felony charges we see is driving with a suspended license, which is charged as a felony after numerous prior convictions.
Other repeat offenses include “habitual” offenders. These may include habitual felony offenders or habitual traffic offenders. Being labeled by the State or courts as a habitual offender carries severe penalties and even more severe downstream consequences.
