Class A Felony

All felonies are categorized as being a crime of “high seriousness” and our legal code describes felonies as crimes “punishable by death or imprisonment in excess of a year”. Felony charges in New York State are prosecuted with a great deal of ferocity due to an overwhelming support by the New York citizenry for those laws and penalties that are “tough on crime”. It is a difficult fight to get felony charges in NY lowered as both prosecutors and jury’s tend to lean conservatively when it comes to any criminal offense.
