Canan Law




The most serious types of crimes are referred to as “felonies.” A felony is any crime that may be punished by more than a year of imprisonment, or sometimes even death. A crime that has a maximum sentence of a monetary fine or a short period of confinement in the local jail is not a felony. When criminal charges are more serious, the need for a criminal defense attorney to help the defendant through the process becomes even greater.

peopleFelonies include both violent and nonviolent crimes, such as grand theft, embezzlement of large sums of money, first-degree assault (i.e., assault that causes severe bodily harm), all degrees of murder, rape, robbery, racketeering, large-scale fraud, kidnapping, and serious drug crimes. The consequences of a felony conviction are severe and can last for a long time. There are also other implications of the conviction that can impact a person’s life for many years to come.
