What Crimes Are Classified as Felonies?

A variety of crimes are classified as a felony under Georgia law. In general, felonies are more serious crimes that can severe harm to persons or property. A felony conviction has serious consequences that will affect you for years, if not the rest of your life. It is essential to hire a skilled Macon felony defense attorney to defend you with tenacity and determination.

Some of the crimes which are charged as felonies include:

Penalties for Felony Convictions

Felonies carry penalties that are harsher than misdemeanor convictions, such as prison terms of more than one year and large fines. Some crimes, such as murder, may carry a sentence of life in prison or the death penalty. In Georgia, defendants with prior convictions anywhere in the United States face additional penalties. The three strikes law states that defendants with three prior felony convictions must serve the maximum sentence without the possibility of parole.

Legal Process in Felony Cases

After an arrest, an arraignment is held within 72 hours. During the arraignment hearing, the charges are read in court and the defendant will enter a plea, either guilty, not guilty, or no contest, which means you neither dispute the charges nor admit guilt. After the arraignment, the attorney and defendant will prepare for trial. It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to begin preparing your defense.

    "Excellent one on one attorney."
    Mr. Barton helped me to realize when to press on and when we would be up against “legal” ineptness of those who can make mistakes of fact without impunity to themselves. Excellent one on one attorney. Thanks.

    "Satisfied client"
    I hired Ken Barton to help me through a pretty significant legal dispute that I experienced. Throughout the litigation, Ken communicated well with me and was very responsive, and I could tell that he really cared about my case. We got a decent outcome from the case, and I was able to move on with my life. I hope that I won’t need his services in the future, but I would definitely hire him again.

    "Excellent Service On Several Matters"
    Devlin has handled our family's business for several years. He has helped us restructure our corporations, prepared our wills, and even probated by husband's estate for me. He is always quick to return my phone calls, and he has a knack for easily explaining complex legal things so that it is easy to understand. My family has been lucky to use him for several matters.
