Criminal Charges

Criminal charges will often vary, depending on the type of crime. Certain offenses will fall within the jurisdiction of the Federal courts, while other charges may be filed in state courts. The two classifications for criminal prosecution are misdemeanor and felony. If convicted of a felony, the sentence can range from months to years in state prison or, in some cases, even the death penalty. In misdemeanor cases, the sentence is often monetary fines, community service and/or incarceration in county jail for up to one year. Violent crimes such as murder, rape, robbery or kidnapping may result in severe sentences. Lesser criminal charges such as assault and battery, domestic violence or theft may be brought as either felonies or misdemeanors, depending on several factors. If you have been arrested for any criminal offense, contact an attorney competent in the area of criminal defense immediately to protect your rights.
