It goes without saying that every crime is extremely serious. Even if it appears minor, you know that it will change your life in a number of ways. Of course, your goal is simple: to put this situation in the past as quickly as possible.
Some crimes are far more serious than others. This holds true with felonies, as a conviction could land you in prison for many years.
Here are some of the most common types of felonies, all of which carry serious punishments:
-- Weapons crimes
-- Homicide or murder
-- Burglary and robbery
-- Assault and battery (first or second degree)
-- Felony drug possession
It doesn't matter why you are being charged with such a crime. In some cases, people are falsely charged. In others, a person made a big mistake that could now have an impact on the rest of his or her life. Of course, there are times when a person is overcharged for one reason or another.
Due to the seriousness of a felony, you don't have time to wait around and hope for the best. You are going to be treated harshly by the court system, so it's imperative to get the help you need without delay.
