Are you being accused of a felony? Generally, crimes are categorized as either felony offense or misdemeanor offense. Felonies typically are considered to be the more serious of the two. If convicted of a felony, you may face harsher penalties, such as higher fines, longer prison sentences, and a lifelong record as a convicted felon.
