Felony Lawyer Phoenix
Arizona Felony Laws
All criminal offenses are classified as either felonies or misdemeanors. Of the two, felony crimes are far more serious offenses and warrant much stricter legal penalties under the law. If you have been charged with a felony crime, you must seek experienced legal representation immediately.
Felony criminal charges will result in an intensive investigation and harsh legal prosecution. By contacting Phoenix felony lawyer Anthony Knowles, you can drastically increase your chances at avoiding a felony conviction and penalties such as time in prison.
Felony Crime Penalties in Arizona
When a felony crime is committed, it will be categorized as one of the six felony crime classes under Arizona law.
The classifications and the potential presumptive sentences for each class are as follows:
- Class 1 felony: 25 years to life in prison, and the death penalty is possible in cases of first degree murder
- Class 2 felony: 5 years
- Class 3 felony: 3.5 years
- Class 4 felony: 2.5 years
- Class 5 felony: 1.5 years
- Class 6 felony: 1 year
As felony crimes are the most serious of all criminal offenses, you will face a number of life-changing penalties if you are convicted. At the very least, you will be sentenced to no less than one year in state prison. Additional penalties can include large fines, countless hours of community service, and a mark on your permanent record.
Furthermore, a felony conviction can bring a devastating blow to your reputation and your relationships with your family, friends, and community, and could also severely jeopardize your ability to hold a good job, find decent housing, or qualify for certain loans.
