Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Here's the Florida statute. As you can see from the subsections, the seriousness of the crime depends upon the amount that you illegally dump.

This can be an infraction, which would most likely result in a fine, or it could be a felony, in which probation with fines would probably be your worst case scenario.
