A felony is a serious criminal offense. If you are convicted of a felony offense you will face significant penalties that will make finding future employment and housing very difficult. A felony conviction will have a serious impact on you and your family and restrict your right to vote.
There are numerous types of violent crimes for which a person may face criminal charges, including:
Unlawfully taking the life of another person is categorized as murder, voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter. Depending on the circumstances of the offense, a person convicted of murder may face life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Very few allegations can damage your reputation as much as a charge involving a sexual offense. It is imperative that you hire an aggressive, competent attorney who is highly experienced in handling these cases.
If you have been accused of committing a robbery or larceny you may be face serious legal consequences. If the threat of violence or a weapon was used during the larceny or robbery, you will face more significant penalties.
This is a complicated area of the law, as assaults involving weapons or assaults that cause serious bodily injury to a victim can be charged as a felony assault. Not only could you be required to pay the victim restitution, you may also face significant jail time and the loss of your right to own, possess, or carry a firearm.
