Criminal law is a body of law that regulates crimes and punishments. What is considered a crime and the punishment prescribed to it, is determined at the federal level and state level. In the United States, crimes are classified in two main categories: misdemeanors and felonies.
A misdemeanor is considered a less serious offense and carries penalties that are not as harsh as a felony offense does. Examples of some misdemeanor offenses include but are not limited to assault and battery cases, drug possession, theft, even some domestic violence cases. Generally, misdemeanor offenses are punishable by a maximum of up to one year in jail, a fine, or both.
A felony offense is considered very serious with very serious penalties if convicted. The extreme side of the penalty spectrum includes life in prison and execution. This of course depends on the precise charge against the offender. Crimes such as, homicide or murder, burglary, and armed robbery are felony offenses. The penalties that are applied for these cases are taken from the “extreme side of the spectrum” if convicted. Felony offenses are generally punishable by a year or more in prison and fines.
If you have been accused of a misdemeanor or felony offense, it is very important to be aware of your U.S. Constitutional Rights. Some of these rights include:
- The right to a Roseville criminal defense attorney;
- The right to not incriminate oneself;
- The right to a speedy and public trial; and
- The right to an appeal.
The consequences of a felony and/or misdemeanor conviction can be dire. They have the potential to negatively affect the course of the offenders life. For example, a person convicted can get fired, many times their spouse ends the marriage, personal liberties may be limited, and their mental and emotional state of mind may be at stake. For this reason, it is imperative for you to speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney about your case.
