Types of Felony Charges

If you have been arrested for a crime in Arizona, you can either be charged for a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the nature and severity of the offense. A felony is the more serious of the two types of charges and is typically punishable by at least a one-year jail sentence. Those convicted of a felony are also at risk of incurring a significant fine and may have trouble obtaining employment in the future.

There are several offenses that can be charged as a felony, including:

Penalties for Felonies in Scottsdale

In Arizona, felonies are divided into six classes. Each class of felony has general guidelines for sentencing that the court can, but is not required to, use when determining penalties to impose on the guilty offender.

The advisory sentencing for each category of felony include:

  • Class 1: 25 years to life in prison
  • Class 2: five years in jail
  • Class 3: three and a half years in prison
  • Class 4: two and a half years of imprisonment
  • Class 5: one and a half years in jail
  • Class 6: one year of jail time

Ultimately, the decision is left to the discretion of the judge. Even if a person is convicted, a skilled criminal defense lawyer can help present evidence and arguments to reduce the period of incarceration. Sometimes an attorney can even negotiate to have a crime charged as a misdemeanor that would have otherwise been charged as a felony.
