Facing criminal charges is never easy, but fighting some criminal charges are more difficult than others. That’s why anyone facing felony criminal charges should hire experienced representation like Nick Lotito & Seth Kirschenbaum.
What Are Felony Charges?
Felonies are criminal charges that, unlike misdemeanor charges, can result in more than a year of jail time. Prosecutors and other authorities arguably see felony criminal cases as more important than misdemeanor criminal cases because the stakes of the cases are much higher.
Besides the amount of jail time, felony and misdemeanor criminal charges also differ in where the sentence is served. Misdemeanor convicts typically serve their time in local our county jails whereas felony convicts serve in state or federal correctional institutions. While this may not seem like a big deal, a felony convict may be further away from loved ones and family compared to misdemeanor convicts.
Why Hire an Attorney for Felony Charges?
Now that we understand what a felony is, why hire an experienced criminal defense attorney for felony charges?
Here are several reasons:
- Not all attorneys are willing to fight for your case in court, but an experienced felony attorney will defend your rights in front of a judge and jury;
- Public defenders are overworked, but hired attorneys have the time to research and investigate felony crimes;
- You get to choose an appointed attorney, but you have no say about a public defender representing you.
