This is the first time I am in trouble in Florida. Will the prosecutor treat this charge like it is my first offense?

Video Transcription:

The answer is they absolutely should. Prosecutors in the state of Florida have broad discretion when it comes to bringing forward charges. Sometimes offenses can be charged either as misdemeanors or felonies. In these instances where someone is being alleged of a crime, and it is their first offense, a private criminal attorney can greatly assist the potential that the state seeks leniency. If the prosecutor has discretion, and you hire a private attorney, the charges can be affected.
