Crimes are divided into two different categories, misdemeanors, and felonies. Misdemeanors are less serious offenses and felonies are offenses that are more serious. Generally speaking, in Arizona, a criminal offense that could result in one year or more in prison is a felony. Felony crimes are considered more serious because they usually involve violence or present a serious danger to others.

In Arizona, there are six (6) classes of felonies, with class one (1) being the most serious. The class of the crime will also help determine the punishment for the crime. Crimes such as murder or rape will be more serious with harsher punishments than a crime involving simple possession of drugs.

Many factors will be used to determine what class of felony someone will be charged with such as if the offense was a first offense if a dangerous weapon or instrument was used, was the victim a child, and others.

Felony crimes can include:

  • Property Crimes
  • Gun Crimes
  • Drug Offenses
  • Sex Crimes
  • White Collar Crimes
  • Violent Offenses

The prosecution will most likely present factors that will be used to increase the charges to a more serious crime, these are called aggravating circumstances. A skilled attorney will present factors that try to put their client in a better light, these are called mitigating circumstances.

Being charged with a felony means that your freedom is at stake. If convicted, you could end up spending years or even decades behind bars. In addition, a felony conviction will be a part of your permanent record. This could affect your ability to get a job, rent a home, attend school, and more. Not to mention the social stigma that is attached to being a convicted felon.

If you are facing felony charges, you should consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer immediately. Having an experienced attorney could mean the difference between freedom and prison.

Had a self defense situation on a late Friday night. Called the emergency hotline and got in touch... with someone right away. Didn't matter how late it was. Once they understood the situation they gave me fantastic advice and steps and where fully prepared to spring into legal action on my behalf if they needed to. Throughly impressed. I'm heading to Chicago for the next month and I feel a lot better doing so with Attorneys For Freedom on my side. Chicago very much is a third world now and if I have to defend myself I can worry about keeping myself alive and safe rather than the legal part of it. I know that for sure.read more
