Take Steps To Avoid Prison When Charged With A Felony
Felony crimes bring serious charges, and a conviction can mean prison time. Felony charges most often involve drug manufacture and distribution, DUI, assault including sexual assault, destructive fires (arson), vandalism, burglary, armed robbery, fraud, murder, rape, kidnapping, assault and battery including domestic violence charges and shaken baby syndrome.
You Stand To Lose A Lot If Convicted
If convicted, your rights, privileges and citizenship can all be affected or taken away. Felony charges can also result in the loss of the right to possess a firearm, even if it is needed for your job. You will also lose the right to vote and, depending on your immigration status, may face deportation if convicted of an aggravated felony. There is a lot at stake when you have been charged with a felony.
