Florida Criminal Punishment Code Ranking Chart

Below is a list of the felony crimes in Florida according to their Offense Level under the Florida Sentencing Guidelines. Click on each Level to see where the crime you are accused of committing is ranked under Florida’s Criminal Punishment Code Scoresheet.

The Scoresheet is extremely important in an accused’s Polk County, FL criminal case. The criminal Scoresheet guideline tells an arrested person:

  • Is the arrested person scoring out to prison?
  • How much Florida state prison time is the defendant scoring out to?
  • Can the Scoresheet be changed so the accused does not score out to prison time?
  • What is the formula used to calculate a defendant’s points?
  • Why is 44 points so important?
  • Does a point equal a month in prison?

Is the Scoresheet more important than the degree of felony an arrested person is charged with?
Call Thomas Grajek, an experienced Lakeland Criminal attorney for answers to those important questions. Below are links to the list of crimes for each Scoresheet Level:

If a person accused of a felony crime scores 44 points or more, the arrested person is scoring a prison sentence. Call and see if the crimes you are charged with amount to 44 points under the Florida Sentencing Guidelines.

Call and set an appointment so I can prepare a Scoresheet for your criminal case and see what you score out to and what your guideline sentence will be. This is where the term “bottom of the guidelines” comes from in felony criminal court.

Each case is different and unique based upon the individual facts of your case. Call now to set up your free consultation so I can answer any questions you may have regarding your criminal case.

Thomas Grajek is a great lawyer

After my husbands DUI, I met with a couple of lawyers but NONE were as attentive as Thomas Grajek. Thomas was able to beat the DUI charge that I thought would be impossible. Not only did he save us money, he also helped put our lives back. I would recommend Mr. Grajek to anyone in our situation. Thsnkd Tom!!!

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
