It all depends on your criminal history, what you were charged with, if you have a chance to plea bargain, what your public defender or private criminal defense attorney tells you, whether the judge is one to be lenient or not.

More information would be needed. If you wish to consult with a private criminal defense attorney, try www.attorneypages.com and check his or her record at the Florida State bar.
