  • Assault by Strangulation
  • Fraud

  • Embezzlement
  • Arm Robbery
  • Sex Crimes

A key difference between a felony conviction and a misdemeanor conviction is that a felony conviction may result in the loss of certain citizenship rights, including the right to vote and the right to hold public office. In addition, a person who has been convicted of a felony cannot possess a firearm or ammunition for a firearm. If the person does, the person is liable for up to 10 years in federal prison for mere possession of something as small as a shotgun shell.

Overall, a felony conviction is a much more serious matter. If possible, you should hire a lawyer as quickly as possible if you believe you may be charged with a felony. And under no circumstances should you speak with police about the case without your lawyer present.
