The overall criminal process is complicated and includes investigation, arrest, conviction, and sentencing. At all stages, the person is entitled to certain fundamental rights including the right to an attorney and to a speedy trial.
The most serious type of criminal offenses – felonies – are punishable by imprisonment for more than one year or death. Felonies encompass a wide-range of offenses, including:
- Assault or Battery
- Culpable Negligence
- Felony Weapons
- Aggravated Stalking
- Sexual Battery
- Car Jacking
- Home Invasion
- Drug Offences
- Vehicular Homicide
- Other offenses
In addition to imprisonment or death, convicted felons may
- lose their voting rights;
- be excluded from certain types of work and prohibited from holding certain licenses; and
- be prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms or ammunition.
If you are faced with a felony charge, you need an attorney who can advise you on all your legal rights and who knows how to manage the criminal process to best address your unique circumstances.
