About Felony Offenses: State and Federal Charges

Van Nuys Felony Defense Lawyer

Felony crimes are very serious, whether charged in state or federal court.  As California has the “three strikes law”, felony convictions become even more dangerous if you are charged with such a crime.  There are a number of crimes that could be charged either as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending upon the circumstances involved.  For example, if you have 3 prior convictions for Driving Under the Influence (DUI), your fourth charge will be Felony DUI.  This is an extremely serious matter, as is any felony charge.  When convicted of a felony, you will be facing massive consequences in your daily life once you have finished serving your sentence in either state or federal prison.  There are many restrictions placed on convicted felons, such as being unable to hold certain professional licenses, work in certain types of jobs, to own a firearm, and even getting employment can be difficult.
