Felonies & Misdemeanors

Crimes are organized legally into two groups, felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies are serious charges that require an experienced and capable lawyer.

The Difference Between Felonies & Misdemeanors

A misdemeanor is a crime punishable by imprisonment for up to one year. A felony is a more serious crime that can be punished by imprisonment in a state prison. You could get probation or a prison sentence for a felony. There can be other serious consequences to being convicted of a felony. You could be held liable for restitution, prohibited from owning a firearm and your employment could be seriously affected.
