What is a Felony?
Felonies are defined as criminal offenses with maximum penalties greater than one year in prison. Felony charges include murder, aggravated assault, rape, and armed robbery, as well as many drug offenses, such as the possession of cocaine or heroin and other serious charges. The classification of crime as a felony is based upon the maximum sentence provided by law — not by what a court actually imposes.
Each crime is categorized into a specific felony class with the more serious being Class A Felonies and ranging in degree to Class E Felonies. Capital crimes, such as First Degree Murder, are obviously the most serious and carry the heaviest penalties. Class E Felonies typically have conviction penalties of one year or longer in prison as well as accompanying fines.
Felony crimes are classed alphabetically in descending order according to their severity in severity from Class A to Class E Felonies.
