Consequences of a Felony in NY

There are a number of consequences that a person may face if they are convicted of a felony such as:

  • Heavy fines
  • Incarceration in a state prison
  • Probation (or none, if your offense is severe)
  • Mandatory community service

As you can see, the severity of the consequences is extreme in the event of a conviction for this category of a crime. What is so interesting about this particular subject of criminal law is that, when a court is looking at your case, they may determine that a criminal misdemeanor offense is actually an aggravated felony, therefore resulting in severe penalties. Fighting these criminal charges that have been placed against you is more important now than ever.
