Defense against Felony Crimes

By Thomas A. Brant  Apr. 21, 2011 1:32p

If you are under investigation for a felony offense, or if you have already been arrested and charged with a felony, then you need to take immediate action by hiring a skilled and qualified Boston criminal defense attorney. Felony crimes are the most serious offenses you can be charged with, and felony convictions carry a mandatory minimum sentence, which means the judge does not have the power or discretion to impose a lighter sentence or probation. People, who are convicted of a felony offense, serve their time in a state prison as opposed to county jail or house of correction.

If you are convicted of a felony offense, you are facing years in prison, parole, community service, restitution, heavy fines and in severe cases, life in prison. Felony crimes include but are not limited to: burglary, robbery, juvenile crimes, aggravated assault, aggravated sexual assault, illegal weapons, rape, murder, mayhem, certain drug crimes, OUI & DWI, accessory before and after the fact, white collar crimes, arson, receiving stolen property, bank robbery, fraud, embezzlement and more.
