Felony Crimes in California
Felonies in California are punishable by imprisonment in a state penitentiary. Beyond serving time in prison, those charged with a felony frequently suffer further consequences, including loss of certain rights and privileges and difficulty getting their life back on track as they will find less employment opportunities available to them. Our attorneys will help you fight your charge and attempt to get it reduced to a misdemeanor or dismissed entirely. Common types of felonies our firm handles include:
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Battery causing serious injury
- Sex crimes, including rape and child pornography
- Drug trafficking
- White collar crimes, such as embezzlement and fraud
Although most states designate felony crimes by different classes, California determines the felony sentence on a case-by-case basis. State lawmakers have set three potential terms: a low-term sentence, a mid-term sentence, and a high-term sentence. For example, a conviction for burglary in California is punishable by either a two-year (lower), four-year (middle) or six-year (higher) prison sentence.
If a certain felony does not have a set punishment, a conviction results in either a 16-month, two-year, or three-year prison term. If a person has been previously convicted of a felony crime, a conviction for another felony will result in longer prison terms.
