WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A FELONY, MISDEMEANOR, AND A VIOLATION?

Posted by Drew Fritsch | Sep 18, 2017 | 0 Comments

Justice

In New York State, offenses are classified in three different categories: felonies, which are punishable by more than one year in jail; misdemeanors, which are punishable by up to one year in jail; and violations, which are punishable by up to 15 days in jail. Different fines and other penalties are also associated with each of these offenses. If you're charged with a felony, it's essential that you consult an attorney immediately. It is also important if you're charged with a misdemeanor or violation, because any of these can have serious consequences on employment, licensing, and educational opportunities later on in life.
