Felonies often carry a potential prison term of longer than one year, and conviction of a felony can lead to further restrictions, including the loss of the right to vote or the right to own firearms. While some crimes (like homicide, kidnapping, and burglary) are so severe that they are always considered felonies, in many cases an act is treated as a felony depending on the value of the property involved or the severity of the crime. If you've been charged with a felony, you need the help of an attorney with experience in criminal law.
