If you’ve been charged with a felony, contact the HTW&W Law Office.
Felonies are at the top of the charts as far as criminal penalties are concerned. Under the Georgia criminal justice system, a felony charge carries the harshest penalties and is considered a more severe crime than misdemeanors or infractions. If you’ve been charged with a felony, immediately contact a qualified criminal defense attorney at HTW&W.
How much more severe are the penalties for a felony conviction?
When compared with a misdemeanor or an infraction conviction, a felony is far worse. You’ll face at least a year in prison and depending on your sentence, could face several years behind bars. If you are convicted of a misdemeanor, you’ll receive at least 5 days in jail and a maximum jail sentence of a year, which you will serve in a jail facility. The least severe of crimes are infractions (also known as petty offenses) and usually do not involve jail time.
What crimes are categorized as felonies?
These crimes are generally treated as felonies: rape, murder, robbery, grand theft, burglary, selling drugs, kidnapping, assault, battery and fraud. HTW&W specializes in representing clients charged with felonies such as these.
What long-term consequences can a felony conviction have?
In many places, convicted felons may lose their right to vote and serve on juries. They may also be prohibited from practicing law, owning guns, becoming a teacher or serving in the military. Those convicted of sex crimes may have to register as a sex-offender. Felonies are serious charges, so don’t wait until you are convicted to do something about it!
