Defending Misdemeanors and Felonies in Spring Valley
A felony case is one where the individual has a suggested prison sentence attached to it. It is usually a more serious case or the person has some prior convictions. Felonies can:
• Result in at least 16 months in prison
• Result in probation for up to 5 years
• Create up to 10,000 in fines
• Require registration as a narcotics or sex offender
Felony cases are quite serious and require a higher bail amount and that the defendant personally shows up to every single court hearing.
A misdemeanor case is a case where the maximum time in custody is 365 days in jail. For a misdemeanor the fines are generally less than $3,000 and probation can range anywhere from 1-5 years. For a misdemeanor case any type of probation would be what is considered informal probation. This means that there would be no probation officer watching the defendant. The only real conditions of probation like this are to not violate any other laws.
