What is a felony?
- Under state and federal law, serious crimes are generally called “felonies” and less serious crimes are “misdemeanors.” Each of these categories can also have classes or levels, depending on the relative seriousness of the offense and the stringency of the punishment. If you’ve been charged with a felony, a criminal defense attorney in your area can explain your rights and what to expect.
