Felonies & Misdemeanors Defined

A felony is any crime which carries a potential penalty of more than one year in prison, such as homicide, robbery, assault, drug trafficking, burglary, and larceny.

Felonies are ordinarily divided into classes: A Felonies, B Felonies, etc., with A being the highest or more serious crime carrying the higher, more severe penalty.

A misdemeanor is any crime for which the penalty is one year or less, such as simple assault, petit larceny, trespassing, and the like.

While misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, a conviction of a misdemeanor will still result in a criminal record that may follow you the rest of your life.

Our Legal Assistance

Our firm has handled thousands of felonies and misdemeanors, and we know how to evaluate the strong and weak points of your case. Our attorneys also understand how to discuss them with a prosecutor so that you are not charged beyond the actual circumstances of the case, and so that a court will not impose an overly harsh sentence. With the proper legal advice, a felony might be reduced to a misdemeanor, and a misdemeanor might be resolved without a criminal charge, or perhaps dismissed entirely.

Additional Information

The initial stages of a criminal investigation are the most crucial, because this is where police develop a case against you. It is important that anyone charged with a felony or misdemeanor does not initial or sign anything, and that they don't speak with police until a lawyer is present. Contact our office for assistance any time of the day or night and we will be there to help you.
