What Crimes Are Felonies?
Most crimes are put into two categories and charged as either a misdemeanor or felony. Felonies tend to carry heavier penalties, with prison incarceration, larger fines, mandatory probation, and more. As a Franklin felony defense attorney, I’m here to ensure your rights are protected as I investigate the details of your case.

Avoiding the Consequences of Felonies
One scare tactic that many law enforcement officials use to coerce a confession is to threaten you with the possible consequences of a conviction. Felonies carry severe consequences that can weigh on your life both immediately and far into the future.
If you are convicted, you would have a permanent criminal record that follows you anywhere you go to obtain housing, employment, or financial assistance. Additionally, felons lose the right to vote and bear arms, and the ability to hold certain professions or licenses may also be lost.
