Felony Charges & Possible Penalties
Felonies are more serious than misdemeanors and include crimes such as drug sales or distribution, sex offenses, burglary, and armed robbery. You need an experienced attorney to accurately advise you and provide effective legal representation in court. Washington categorizes felonies as Class A, Class B, and Class C. The penalties for conviction depend on the classification of the crime.
Penalties for felony convictions may include:
- Class A – Up to life in prison and fines of up to $50,000
- Class B – Up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $20,000
- Class C – Up to five years in prison and fines up to $10,000
Even after you have served your sentence, the conviction may continue to follow you and negatively impact your life. This stigma can limit opportunities for future employment, pursuing higher education, and impacts your personal and professional reputation. For this reason, it is important to work with a lawyer who will fight for your rights and protect your interests in court.
