A municipal ordinance is a violation of a city ordinance. These are prosecuted by the City Attorney’s Office in State Court. Examples of municipal violations are disorderly conduct, indecent conduct, prostitution, trespassing, urinating or defecating in public, loitering or prowling, and panhandling. You can learn more about the City Attorney at CityofOrlando.net. On that website, there is a link to the municipal code.
Offense Levels and Penalties
Levels, Prison, Fines
Aside from the degree of crime (e.g., 1st degree misdemeanor versus 3rd degree felony), felonies are categorized into levels ranging from 1 to 9 – the higher the level, the more severe the punishment. The levels are important because they impact the score that is reflected on the criminal punishment scoresheet.
