Understanding the Nature of Felonies in New York
In many cases, a certain crime might be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony, all dependent on the alleged seriousness of the circumstances wherein the crime was committed. In some events, larger monetary amounts of property stolen could result in a felony, while the involvement of a minor or a vulnerable person could alternatively progress a misdemeanor into a felony. If you have been charged and found guilty of a felony, you can be sure that you will be enduring the worse kinds of penalties, which is precisely why your team of skilled attorneys seek to dismiss charges as soon as possible.
Some examples of crimes which are often categorized as felonies include those involving:
- Murder and manslaughter
- Rape and sexual assault
- Kidnapping across border lines of states or national boundaries
- Selling illegal drugs border lines of states or national boundaries
- Multiple offenses of driving while intoxicated
- Mail fraud
- Violations of civil rights and related assaults
- Trafficking drugs
- Aggravated assault
- Committing a criminal offense either against a federal employee or upon federal property
How the Legal Process Works
In the state of New York, the first step of the defense process is having your case represented at an arraignment hearing. Your attorneys can support you in your chances of pleading either guilty or not guilty after your charges have been read. This is the opportunity at which your lawyer may need to request bail, and the judge must determine whether they will grant bail.
Following this, you are entitled to have at least one initial hearing, where your criminal defense lawyers and the prosecution must both demonstrate evidence from the case, along with any testimonies of witnesses. In addition to investigating the details of your case with utter scrutiny, along with arguing the case for your liberty and rightful intentions, our attorneys are ready to do everything in their power to mitigate the harsh consequences which often arise in felony cases. We are ready to appeal your case or support you at hearings for parole, anything that can mitigate the potentially harsh penalties. Trust The Kindlon Law Firm, PLLC to powerfully defend your cause no matter the circumstances.
