California Felony Facts & Consequences

Felonies can be divided into two categories, which include “straight” felonies and “wobblers.” Straight felonies are those offenses that can only be charged as felonies; they cannot be reduced down to misdemeanors. Wobblers are offenses that could be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the facts and circumstances of the case. The prosecutor has the discretion of how such offenses are charged. Generally, wobblers are considered less serious than straight felonies and result in less harsh punishments.

Most California felonies are straight felonies. These include such crimes as:

California also has established the “three strikes” law that punishes repeat offenders with increased punishments for successive felony convictions. For example, a second felony conviction can lead to prison time that is doubled while a third one will lead to 25 years in prison to life. First felony convictions carry more than a year of prison time and/or a fine of up to $10,000.

In light of the grave penalties connected with any felony conviction, we strongly advise that you seek our services. Our Los Angeles felony defense attorney can help, whether you are still under investigation or have been formally charged.
