FELONIES ARE THE MOST SERIOUS OFFENSES
They require vigorous defenses.
What is a Felony?
“A serious crime, contrasted to a lesser offense such as a misdemeanor, punishable by fines, one year or more in prison and, in extreme serious cases, death.”
The California Legislature has stated that the primary goal of the Felony Determinate Sentencing Law of 1977 is to punish offenders. If a defendant is sentenced on a felony crime he or she may be sent to state prison.
