Florida is the state discretion I am dealing with & I am concerned with the Attempted 2nd Degree Murder Offense (782.04(2) and 777.04). I am concerned with this statues Offense Level because a Judge put this charge as a Level 10 offense & attorneys are saying this is a Level 8, 9 offense. WHO IS RIGHT?? I am lost & I need help into the right answer, please. **According to the Florida Criminal Punishment code, Attempted 2nd Dgre. Fel. Murd. 782.051 (3) is a LEVEL 7 OFFENSE. **Attempted 1st Dgre. Fel. Murd. while perpetrating or attempting to perpetrate a Fel. 782.051 (2) is a LEVEL 8 OFFENSE. **Attempt, conspire, or solicit to commit premeditated murd. 1st degree 782.04 (1) is a LEVEL 9 OFFENSE. **Attempted 1st dgre. Fel. Murd. while perp. or attempting to perp. a fel. enumerated 782.051is a LEVEL 9 OFFENSE. & Of course both 1st degree murder AND second degree murder are BOTH Level 10 Offenses. **I DO NOT HAVE AN ATTORNEY. **BUT MY QUESTION IS, BASED ON THIS INFORMATION WHAT IS THE LEVEL FOR ATTEMPTED 2ND DEGRE. MURD. ?? Lawyers told me the "Attempted" murder charges are always a level below the actual charge (Murder), that 1st degree murder is a level 10, while the attempted 1st degree would be level 9, while 2nd degree murder would be level 9, WOULDNT THAT MAKE ATTEMPTED 2ND DEGREE MURDER A LEVEL 8 OR 7 OFFENSE?????
