Felony Offenses

Felony Offenses

Serving Akron, Canton, Summit County, Portage and Medina, Ohio.
Ohio classifies crimes as either misdemeanors or felonies. A misdemeanor is generally a less crime (not without its own burdens) that is most commonly handled by a local Municipal Court. On the other hand, a felony is much more serious with serious penalties and consequences that are handled by a county Common Pleas Court. Even with varying degrees of severity, both felony and misdemeanor charges and convictions will be on your permanent record.

When faced with a felony charge, hiring an adept criminal defense lawyer with experience for representation is essential. The lawyers at Hoover Kacyon, LLC., are dedicated to supporting our clients through all felony matters. We deliver the highest quality legal representation from a team of professionals with experience in representing clients on all felony-level charges. Getting the best possible outcome is our goal to prevent the backlash, embarrassment, and stigma of a felony criminal conviction.
 
Crimes Classified as Felonies
 
Most felonies are classified by “degree” in Ohio. From the least serious being Fifth Degree Felonies and the most serious being First Degree Felonies. However, there are also what are referred to as “unclassified” felonies. Facts and circumstances will decide whether or
not a felony charge is brought to the State or Federal Court. Some felony charges common

Felony Conviction Penalties
 
In Ohio, if you are convicted of a felony, expect both a fine and prison time. Depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, courts are provided with a range of penalties to impose. Prison sentences can range from 6 months up to life in prison without parole or even so much as the death penalty. In addition to prison time, the Court may impose fines up to $25,000.
 
One thing is for certain, a felony conviction is oftentimes life-changing. Even after any prison term, you will also face limited employment opportunities, a possible ban from owning or possessing firearms, voting restrictions, loss of professional licenses, and you may be limited in locations you are allowed to live once released.
 
Avoid those repercussions (and a conviction) by hiring a great, assertive, experienced lawyer today.
