Perjury Attorneys Miami
Perjury Felony or Misdemeanor in Florida
Perjury refers to the act of lying or making statements that are not true while a person is under oath. When asked to testify in a criminal proceeding, not telling the truth can result in charges of perjury if discovered. In Florida, perjury is taken very seriously because it refers to partaking in the miscarriage of the legal process and the system of criminal justice.
Lying is an easy action to take but can cause serious repercussions if done within a legal proceeding. By committing perjury, the offender has disrupted the discovery of truth required for criminal justice to take place. Severe legal ramifications can result if you have been charged with perjury.

Florida Perjury Laws
Perjury is most often discovered when one person's word is up against the other. A third-degree felony can be charged when a witness offers contradicting statements under oath. When false reports are provided for a police report, a first-degree misdemeanor can be charged to the one who testified.
If you have been charged with the crime of perjury, our experienced criminal defense attorneys can inform you of your rights and available options. In some circumstances, recanting the false statement during the same judicial proceeding in which it was made can allow the individual to avoid prosecution.
