Most crimes are categorized into either misdemeanors or felonies. Some crimes, such as drug offenses, can be either depending on the circumstances. Felonies are far more severe than misdemeanors. Not only do they carry hefty prison sentences and enormous fines, but they stay on your record permanently. Currently, felons may not vote in Nevada, and finding reliable work can be challenging. There is a wide range of crimes that can be felonies. They include:
- Third DUI conviction in three years
- Felony DUI
- DUI causing death or bodily harm
- Certain domestic violence incidents
- Some theft crimes
- Some drug crimes
- Certain gun charges
- White collar crimes
What to Expect Next From Your Felony Case
If you have been arrested on a felony charge, you will appear before a magistrate judge or Justice of the Peace within three days. While misdemeanor charges do not require you to appear in court, a felony does. You will want us to be present to handle all legal processes. At this hearing, the prosecutor will announce what – if any – charges they are filing against you. You will receive a copy of the complaint at this hearing. From there, we will begin our work representing you and ensuring your sentence is as forgiving as possible.
