Does anyone know Florida case law regarding Prior and Persistent Offender Status? It seems to me that if KC is individually charged for current and future Theft charges that her sentencing could/would be escalated to the maximum allowed by law resulting in severe jail time just for the theft charges. I know in my state that the first charge is often probation,then the second charge for a related crime is a short jail sentence and then the 3rd time is several years. I feel she will be tried on these different theft charges and end up serving a good deal of time based on being a P&P offender. JMO
