DBPR is required by law to forward any unlicensed activity cases to the local State Attorney for prosecution. During a declared state of emergency, the penalty for unlicensed activity is elevated from a misdemeanor to a third-degree felony. Because of the heightened penalty, you may wish to check with the State Attorney’s office regarding any cases they may be pursuing.
