Defense Attorney in Alabama & Georgia for Felony Charges
If you are charged with a felony crime, you will be facing the most severe penalties in the state or federal criminal codes. Felonies differ from misdemeanors in that they are seen to involve a higher level of personal or public harm, or where there has been more than one offense arising out of the same act. For some felonies, there are mandatory jail sentences just for being convicted.
Many employers run background checks on their prospective employees and can exclude an applicant on the basis that they have a felony conviction, especially for jobs where security is a concern. Additionally, it can be a red flag on applications to rent a home. You may even be barred from obtaining certain professional licenses and you may not be accepted into a higher education program of your choice. You will not be permitted to purchase a firearm and in some cases, you cannot apply for welfare.
A felony conviction can have a great impact on your life and your future, so if you are charged, you should seek representation as quickly as possible. The Black Belt Law Center, P.C. has the experience and skills to defend against your felony charges and protect your reputation.
Examples of Felonies
Some crimes are automatically charged as felonies, such as murder, burglary, tax evasion, and perjury. Other crimes may have felony-level charges that are triggered by repeat offenses, or higher degrees of offense, such as possessing illegal drugs for distribution. However, there are many crimes that could be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the circumstances surrounding the alleged crime in question.
