Felony & Misdemeanor Charges

Board-Certified Criminal Defense Lawyer in Minneapolis

Crimes are classified as felonies and misdemeanors. Misdemeanors are less heavily penalized than felonies, and carry less long-term negative effects. In spite of this, however, ignoring a misdemeanor charge or treating it lightly is a poor strategy that could result in serious consequences.

Any criminal charge requires representation from a capable team of Minneapolis criminal defense lawyers who can stand up for you and help you move on with your life after an arrest. You can rely on Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. for the skilled advocacy and representation you need.

Whether you are facing a felony or misdemeanor charge, call our firm today.

The Difference Between Felonies & Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors are punishable by up to, but not more than, one year in county jail, fines, mandatory restitution, community service, and other penalties. Misdemeanors may be classified as a petty misdemeanor, misdemeanor, or gross misdemeanor. Felonies are categorized into six "classes."

These crimes may be punished by a term in state prison, heavy fines, and even the death penalty. In addition, being charged with a felony could affect other aspects of the accused individual's life. They will no longer be able to own a firearm, and their employment options could also be jeopardized.

Examples of felony crimes include:

  • Sexual assault
  • Murder
  • Aggravated assault
  • Aggravated battery
  • Weapons crimes
  • Some drug offenses
  • Kidnapping
  • Grand theft
