Atlanta Felony Charges
We build the strongest defense possible based on the facts involved in your case. In Georgia, a felony is a criminal charge that is punishable by at least one year in prison, as opposed to a misdemeanor, which is a lesser charge that is punishable by a year or less in county jail. Felonies are the most serious crimes a person can be charged with, including burglary, arson, armed robbery, rape, and murder. Georgia allows the death penalty in murder cases, while robbery, kidnapping, and burglary can result in a sentence of up to 25 years in prison. Serious sex crimes, like rape, are punishable by up to a life in prison sentence.
After being arrested for a felony, you will have the opportunity to enter a plea at an arraignment. It is incredibly important to have a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney representing you in your case when you have been charged with a felony in Gwinnett County.
Felony charges in Georgia are distinguished as crimes that cause more harm to the public than lesser charges like misdemeanors.
