Felonies Compassionate Defense, Relentless Advocacy

Oakland County Felony Attorney

What is a Felony?

The difference between a felony and a misdemeanor depends on the severity of the crime. In Michigan, felonies are punishable by imprisonment by the state, among other things. Misdemeanors, which are less severe, may be punishable by jail time but also commonly result in fines, restitution, and community service.

Types of Felony Offenses

There are many crimes that can be tried as a misdemeanor or felony depending on the circumstances, including:

Drug crimes make up more than one-fourth of all charges tried at the circuit court level. Possession of small amounts of marijuana and some controlled chemical substances are generally considered misdemeanors, while other drug charges are typically felonies.

About Aggravating Circumstances

A crime that would otherwise be classified as a misdemeanor may be considered a felony if there are certain “aggravating” factors present.

Aggravating circumstances include:

  • The use of violence
  • Children were involved
  • Severe harm was inflicted upon others
  • The alleged offender has previous convictions

Any one of these could make an otherwise simple charge more complicated for the accused, and make the consequences even more severe.
