for Your Rights
A felony is a crime punishable by imprisonment in state prison. All criminal offenses are categorized according to the penalties that may be enforced upon a conviction, and a felony is the most serious category, with several levels. In extreme cases, a person convicted of a felony may face the death penalty, which remains in effect in our state. Otherwise, sentencing can range from 1 year to life imprisonment in a state correctional facility.
