Felony violations are much more serious than misdemeanor offenses in Georgia. Punishments for these crimes vary on the severity of the violation, and the criminal history of the accused. Types of punishments included a minimum of a year in prison and/or a fine, up to the Death Penalty for the most serious violent Felonies. Even if someone charged with a Felony is eventually acquitted at trial or the charges are dismissed, there are many outcomes of the process that could have permanent consequences if an accused is not careful in navigating the process. If you are convicted even one Felony, you could face a minimum of one year in prison.
If you are convicted even one Felony, you could face a minimum of one year in Prison or a fine in excess of $1,000. You will also face court costs, probation/parole, evaluations and assessment fees, drug and alcohol testing fees and other financial penalties. Felony convictions, like Misdemeanor Convictions, could be used against you in civil cases if you are sued for damages based on the outcome of the criminal act. Felony charges and arrests can have permanent financial, employment, and emotional consequences of a serious nature, and should be handled by an experienced Criminal Law Attorney to ensure all of an accused rights are protected.
