Costa Mesa Criminal Defense Attorney

Misdemeanor and Felony Offenses

A felony offense is a very serious crime that often includes an act of violence, or crimes that cause extensive damage to another person or to property. A conviction in a felony case will often result in incarceration and heavy fines. A white collar crime such as embezzlement or fraud may be charged as a felony if the crime was connected to an organized criminal activity, or the amount of property involved was extensive.

Under the state's three strikes law, when a person is arrested for a serious offense for the third time, they will be facing a 25 year to life sentence. These crimes often involve the use of a deadly weapon. A misdemeanor is less serious than a felony, but can still result in jail time and fines. A misdemeanor can result in up to 12 months in county jail.
