A Felony is a serious crime in which the accused person faces possible prison time. These are the most serious types of allegations and can be broken into five main categories:
The most serious felonies are known as "life felonies" because a judge must sentence an individual to life in prison if they are convicted.
The next type of felony is a "possibility of life felony," also known as a PBL. For a conviction on a PBL felony, the judge may, but does not have to, sentence an individual to life in prison.
The third type of felony is called a "first degree felony."Conviction for these types of crimes carry a maximum sentence of thirty (30) years in prison.
The least serious types of felonies are "second degree" and "third degree" felonies, which carry a maximum penalty of fifteen (15) years and five (5) years, respectively.
