The laws that govern crime and punishment are wide-ranging and variable. Facing criminal charges often seems overwhelming. Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony, the attorneys at Chew Law can guide you through the process and answer all of your questions along the way.
What is a felony?
Felonies are serious crimes that can result in state prison sentences and loss of employment, housing and educational opportunities. Felonies include many crimes of violence, sex offenses, drunk driving that causes injury or death and fraud or theft of more than $400.
How does my criminal record factor in?
Past criminal convictions may result in stiffer sentences if you are found guilty of a felony. You may face additional time behind bars, for example, if you are a felon in possession of a firearm or if you have committed prior crimes of the same nature.
What should I do if I am arrested for a felony?
If you are under arrest, it is best to comply with authorities so that you are not charged with additional crimes such as resisting arrest. Exercise your constitutional rights by choosing not to answer any questions until you speak to your attorney.
