Florida Elder Abuse Laws & Penalties

According to Florida law, elder abuse is defined as physical, emotional, sexual, and financial abuse or neglect inflicted on a person who is at least 60 years of age. A person can also be charged with elder abuse for encouraging another individual to commit elder abuse.

When elder abuse doesn’t result in great bodily injury or permanent disability, it is a third-degree felony, punishable by a maximum five-year prison sentence and a fine of up to $5,000. When the abuse involves great bodily injury or permanent disability, it is considered a first-degree felony, which carries a maximum 30-year prison term and a fine not exceeding $10,000.

Neglect that doesn’t involve great bodily injury or permanent disability is a third-degree felony. However, when neglect involves great bodily injury or permanent disability, it is a second-degree felony, which is punishable by a maximum 15-year prison sentence and a fine of up to $10,000.

When it comes to financial exploitation, if property that is valued at less than $10,000 is stolen, it is a third-degree felony. If the crime involves property valued between $10,000 and less than $50,000, it is a second-degree felony. Lastly, if the crime involves property valued at $50,000 or more, it is a first-degree felony.
