A felony, unlike a misdemeanor, is a more serious offense involving serious physical harm, or the intent to commit harm, that is punishable anywhere from one year to life in prison without parole. Due to the complicated nature of the legal system in California, a felony charge can be a serious issue. In the state of California, felony charges generally fall into these categories:

  • Murder/homicideFelony
  • Armed robbery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Aggravated battery
  • Manslaughter
  • First degree robbery
