Long Island Felony Defense Attorneys
Felonies are serious crimes! In the State of New York felonies are defined as crimes that carry prison sentences in excess of one year. In New York felonies are divided by gradations such as class A, class B, and class C felonies. The class A felony is the most severe and as you go down the alphabet the felonies become less severe. For some felony charges you can be sentenced to life in prison. For other felony charges you can be given anywhere from one year to twenty years in prison.
If you, a family member, a friend or a loved one are charged with a felony, obtain qualified experienced criminal defense counsel immediately! Felonies have consequences over and above the jail sentences imparted by the court. They can eliminate an individual’s ability to obtain certain types of employment, such as being a teacher, lawyer, or doctor. A conviction causes you to lose your right to vote. It may prevent you from obtaining government aid, such as student loans and may restrict international travel and other valuable rights.
