Representing You on Felony Charges

A felony in New York is any offense where the potential sentence includes state prison time exceeding one year. Felonies are ranked in five categories: Class A through Class E. Class A felonies are the most serious and can carry a maximum sentence of life in prison. Class E felonies are the least serious and carry a sentence of anywhere from zero (unconditional discharge) to four years in state prison.  The statute of limitations for most felonies is five years with certain exceptions. The term of probation for most felonies is five years but can be up to ten years. Lifetime probation is also possible in some cases.  Being convicted of a felony can have devastating consequences, including the loss of your liberty. You must have an experienced criminal defense attorney fighting for you.
