Misdemeanors VS Felonies

While misdemeanors are less serious criminal offenses, they can significantly impact your life. The penalties may involve fines, jail time, or both. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felony cases, a class A misdemeanor can still have a fine of up to $2,500 and a jail sentence of up to one year.

The felony designation is reserved for more serious crimes, like offenses involving violence, weapons violations, and drugs. Felony charges can also be leveled for white collar crimes, such as theft, embezzlement, and fraud. The severity of the charge is indicated with a roman numeral, with class X being the most severe. These cases are the most serious and require an attorney that is equally serious about your defense.

While we are always prepared to take a case to trial, one of our goals in representing you will be to attempt to convince the States Attorney to downgrade charges from felonies to less severe felonies or to misdemeanors whenever possible.
