Felony

What does Felony mean?

A felony is a criminal offense committed against another individual or their property. A felony is a serious criminal offense and is generally punishable by more than one year in prison, fines or death. Common felonies include felony assault, which is generally assault with a deadly weapon, rape, arson, murder and assault and battery, which is generally accompanied with a weapon.

Felonies can also be classified by degrees. For instance, first degree murder is considered murder which is premeditated and has a more severe penalty than second degree murder. If you have been charged with a felony it is important to talk to a criminal lawyer. Felonies can have high penalties, and a criminal conviction can make it difficult to find employment.
