Felonies vs. Misdemeanors
Criminal offenses can be broken down into two main categories: felonies
Felonies are the most serious criminal offenses that can be committed,
including crimes like:
- Drug trafficking
They are punishable by a year or more of prison time and can include up
to five years of probation and post release supervision. Depending on
the type of crime, a person convicted of a felony may owe a substantial
amount of fines and fees as well.
Misdemeanors may include the following types of crimes:
- Drug possession
- Petty theft
- Indecent Exposure
In some cases, a crime could be a felony if more severe circumstances were
involved, such as a third DWI or a weapon involved in the assault. While
they are still considered serious offenses, misdemeanors result in much
less jail or prison time. If convicted of a misdemeanor, you could face
up to one year in county jail, probation time, fines and other penalties.
