Fighting Against the Penalties of a Felony Conviction
Felonies are serious crimes that have punishments with life-altering implications. If you're convicted of a felony, you can face:
- Several years to life in state prison
- Hefty fines
- Community service
- Mandatory alcohol, drug, or mental health counsel
California’s felony sentencing law is very complex. An experienced attorney will know how to help you navigate through the system and help you mitigate your potential risks. For example, many felonies are “wobbler crimes.” These are crimes that can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. When the District Attorney’s office chooses to file a felony instead of a misdemeanor (as they often do), the skill of your criminal defense attorney comes into play. An experienced attorney can effectively petition the court to have a crime “reduced” to a misdemeanor instead of a felony.
Another recent change to felony sentencing law involves whether a criminal conviction results in a sentence in state prison, or “county jail prison”. This area of the law is new and very complicated. The consequences of making a mistake are potentially extremely serious. we have specific training in this area of the law far above and beyond the average defense attorney.
