What is the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor?

Video Transcription:

In the state of Florida, a misdemeanor is punishable by one year in the county jail. That is a maximum punishable offense. Generally, misdemeanor offenses include bar fights, simple batteries, and the most common misdemeanor offense is probably driving under the influence. A felony charge can be punished by up to life in prison, depending on the severity of the case. A simple answer here is that a misdemeanor is a less serious offense than a felony.
