Felonies and Misdemeanors

Felonies and Misdemeanors

Felonies are crimes punishable in Massachusetts by significant time in prison, often five years or more. Felonies include a variety of offenses, such as aggravated assault and battery, weapons charges, and sex crimes, and a guilty charge can have a serious and permanent impact on your record and your rights. Felony charges can cause immense stress in one's life. The best and safest way to confront felony charges is to seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney as quickly as possible. Your defense attorney will review the potential consequences with you and the best ways to approach your charges. With prompt advice and representation from a criminal defense attorney, you may be able to significantly mitigate the consequences of your charges. Attorneys may be able to negotiate with a prosecutor to have your charges reduced or case dismissed entirely before the case goes to trial.

Misdemeanors are classified as less serious crimes than felonies, punishable by up to two and-a-half years of jail time, though most often misdemeanors are a threat to your record, possibly a serious one, along with possible fines or other consequences. Common misdemeanors include shoplifting, many types of drug possession, disorderly conduct, and operating under the influence (OUI). In many cases, an experienced attorney can successfully use pretrial negotiation to safeguard your record, reduce charges, or potentially have your case dismissed. Retaining the services of a criminal defense attorney is your best chance of educating yourself about your legal position, maintaining a clean record, and reducing or eliminating the chance of fines and/or jail time.
