Felony Crimes

A Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer can help you avoid time in state or federal prison if you have been charged with a felony crime. A person who is convicted of a felony crime may be subjected to a potential prison sentence. Typically, a felony crime will have a mandatory prison sentence of a year. Unlike misdemeanors, a felony conviction may result in a much harsher prison sentence.  Immediate attention by your Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer is crucial in all felony crime cases. The sooner an experienced criminal defense attorney begins reviewing your case, the sooner a strong, aggressive defense strategy can be built. In order to do so, an experienced felony crime attorney must thoroughly investigate your case to gather all of the crucial information regarding your felony charge.

Misdemeanor Crimes v. Felony Crime

There are several contributing factors that will help determine whether a crime is considered a misdemeanor or a felony. This categorization is often determined after all of the particular specifics relating to a criminal case are assessed. A charge can become a felony if violence was involved or if an individual was injured. If the accused has previously been convicted of a crime, this may also result in a crime being considered a felony rather than a misdemeanor. There are a wide range of cases where these variables may apply. Some of the most common types of offenses include DUI, drug crimes, theft, and domestic violence.
