Criminal Penalties in the U.S.

A Crime In a Foreign Country May Have Different Penalties Compared To the U.S.

The Olympics are nearing a close. There have been many highs (thank you Michael Phelps and the U.S.A. women’s gymnastics team) but there have also been lows. The Olympics have been marred by doping and drug abuse. Russia led the stats with quite a few of their athletes being charged with doping. Along with drug use, the Olympics also brought crime. 49th Street Bail Bonds cites examples of the crime that visitors to the Rio Olympics faced:

•Swimmer, Ryan Lochte, and three of his fellow teammates claimed they were robbed at gunpoint by thieves that were pretending to be police….investigation still continues into this
•Two armed men robbed an athlete from the Australian Paralympic team
•An Australian news team was attacked on the beach
•A New Zealand athlete was abducted and made to withdraw cash from ATM’s across the city
•The Olympic head of security was robbed at knife-point

While Brazil is a different country with different laws, 49th Street Bail Bonds reminds people that a person who is convicted of armed robbery in Florida can face a first degree felony that could result in up to 30 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. Those that are caught in possession of drugs face either a misdemeanor or felony charge depending on the type and amount of the involved substance. A first degree felony could result in jail up to 30 years with a fine of up to $10,000 while a misdemeanor charge could result in up to a year in jail with a fine of up to $1,000. A habitual felony offender, a person with two or more prior felony convictions, faces more penalties and charges. A habitual misdemeanor offender, a person with four of more prior misdemeanor convictions, also faces additional charges and penalties.
