Felonies and the "Three Strikes Law" in California
The difference between a felony and a misdemeanor is the matter of severity of the crime and, accordingly, the sentencing. Felonies are crimes punishable by imprisonment in excess of one year and, in the most severe cases, can include the death penalty. Misdemeanors are punishable by imprisonment of one year or less. Being charged with a felony is a very serious matter. If this has happened to you, contacting a Riverside felony lawyer should be your first action.
California imposes some of the harshest sentencing for felony convictions. The "three strikes law" requires significant increases of prison time after the first felony conviction, even if it was for a non-violent crime. A second felony conviction automatically results in doubling of a prison term, and a third requires a sentence of 25 years to life in prison. It is important to note that the first and second "strikes" are counted by individual charges, rather than by case.
Types of Felonies
Examples of felonies include:
- Aggravated assault
- Possession of Schedule II narcotics
- Tax evasion
- Theft over $500
Our knowledge and experience can be of great benefit in a felony case, and we will do everything we can to work toward a favorable outcome, such as having the felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor.
Having a felony conviction on your record can affect your future as regards employment opportunities and housing. Professional licenses can also be cancelled, among other consequences. The quality of your representation can mean the difference between imprisonment and your freedom.
